From the newspaper today:
"The school [University of Virginia] denied that Taiwanese media had pressured it or suggested that Chen Chih-chung should not be allowed into the program.
Chen Shui-bian said on Friday the university had told his son not to attend because it could not stand the pressure from Taiwanese media."
So, the former president is so out of touch with the intellectual abilities of TWnese and is ACTUALLY expecting people to believe that: A. a major US academic institution would have ever have heard of any “Taiwanese media”, or would actually care what Taiwanese media had to say; and B. That anyone from the Taiwan media could actually make a call or something to exert that pressure. I would love to hear that call (or read the email, etc) from a Taiwanese journalist. Let’s just say it would be beyond hysterical based on the level of English I’ve seen among the local press.
