    Yesterday, a friend who works for the Epoch Times in San Francisco, revealed a particularly interesting story. On the very night of April 10 when the China Central Television broadcast the news about Bo Xilai, the Epoch Times’ senior managers immediately convened a meeting of San Francisco-based backbone staff editors and reporters for discussion on how to use the “Bo Xilai and Wang Lijun” event to launch a psychological propaganda campaign against the Chinese government. This friend of mine was half-way home when notified of the intended meeting and therefore had to return to office right away to attend the meeting.

    According to this friend, Vice President of the Epoch Times, Li Jiguang, presided over the meeting. At the meeting, Li orally conveyed the position held by the high-level leaders of Falun Gong on the propaganda campaign, that is, the Epoch Times can report the impact of the “Bo Xilai and Wang Lijun”event in any manner. However, in order to distinguish such reports (ie the reports on the “Bo Xilai and Wang Lijun ”event) from the reports in respect of the “democratic movement”, emphasis should be laid on two issues. First, reports published by the Eposh Times should highlight the negative impacts of the position of persecuting Falun Gong which are constantly adhered to by relevant senior Chinese government leaders, including Bo Xilai and Wang Lijun already dismissed by the Chinese government. Second, such reports on the senior Chinese government leaders should also highlight the impact of activities of the Falun Gong followers by mentioning as much as possible how Falun Gong followers have struggled against these leaders. The overall goal intended to achieve through this propaganda campaign is to improve the visibility of Falun Gong.

    The friend said, at the meeting, Li Jiguang indicated that the Epoch Times would double the pay for reports in this respect for the purpose of maximizing the influence of this propaganda campaign. Moreover, additional rewards will be given to reports having more significant impacts. Li Jiguang repeatedly said at the meeting that, however much the cost of such reports is, it will be worth paying as long as the reports can cause trouble to the Chinese government, and the Epoch Times does not lack backing economically.

    The friend said, Li Jiguang at the meeting requested that the Epoch Times staff editors should also be involved in writing the reports, or alternatively should ask their acquaintances to write such reports. Li smiled and claimed that “one must not let one’s own fertile water flow into outsiders’ fields”.
