    United Airlines was recently featured in (China's) People's Daily series "Dishonest Americans". A description of the mishandling of a Chinese family by United may be found here:

    A discussion of the ironies of the People's Daily vs. United Airlines may be found in an Atlantic article by James Fallows:

    An even broader discussion of the People's Daily series (which,when literally translated) "Immoral and Untrustworthy Americans" in the NY Times:

    If you have the time, they're all worth reading.

    They certainly both live in their own reality distortion zones. And all information they receive or give is carefully cleansed first.

    I have to laugh because my comment on the first article was censored. It was still published, but the sentence about the article being propaganda was removed. ;)

    Poasted in iPhone app--you know what that means

    Reading the comments section in People's Daily is often more interesting than reading the original article!
