Kaiser Kuo

Kaiser Kuo’s plea to foreign correspondents attending the Beijing Olympics to forget the cliches about China, made it today to Reuters.

“I think the highest blood boiler for me is the phrase ‘coming-out party’,” he told Reuters after writing a tongue-in-cheek column warning the media of the pitfalls of reporting China with a supposedly fresh eye.
He warned that after appearing in 75.4 percent of stories about the Olympics being awarded to Beijing, talk of a ‘coming-out party’ “now incites English-speaking expats to an ugly violent rage. Use it at your own peril.”
