Via Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, China Curbing "American Idol" Copycat Shows That "Undermine Socialist Values"

If the comrades in Beijing are worried about TV shows, their grip on power is surely less secure than the world imagines.

Also, if shows like American Idol, and Indian Idol, undermine socialist values, then shouldn't we have all channels broadcasting this stuff all the time!!

Clearly our contempt for these shows that celebrate bourgeois kitsch was greatly mistaken!!

I follow Indian Idol and Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. I can see how these shows could be blockbusters in Pakistan. I'm not sure we can infitrate China with these weapons just yet :-) - maybe Jackie Chan (and Mallika Sherawat) will be our initial Trojan Horse!
