Cross Strait Relations
The use of overt and covert censorship in relation to mainland China and the People's Republic of China is an active area of controversy. For example, satellite channels perceived to adopt a pro-PRC or pro-unification editorial stance, such as Phoenix TV, were refused landing rights in Taiwan by the DPP-controlled government. Similarly, correspondent offices representing the PRC government-controlled Xinhua News Agency and the People's Daily were closed by the DPP-controlled government. These policies were reversed after the election of the Kuomintang in 2008.

I am weary of personality....

—D.H. (David Herbert)
“If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.”

When we were in the midst of it he shouted paddle, and we shot through without taking in a drop.”
