Zuck Asks Team To Read Chinese Propaganda To Impress Beijing
Some are calling Facebook head Mark Zuckerberg out for brown nosing after giving his employees copies of a book by the Chinese president.By Ben Lawson | December 8, 2014
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has done nothing to hide his ambition of getting the company back into China, but his latest move is drawing accusations of, well, brown nosing.
That's because of this photo appearing on a Chinese-government-controlled website. It shows a copy of President Xi Jinping's book, "The Governance of China," conveniently sitting on Zuckerberg's desk when China's head Internet regulator toured Facebook's California campus last week.
"The Governance of China" is a collection of 79 speeches, interviews and talks given by Xi. It's described as providing insight into China's current foreign and domestic policies, but Quartz says it comes off more as "wooden propaganda."
