she had moved on and abandoned him Regardless of his pleas she turned his own words against him If he still loved her how could he not want her happiness These were the kinds of “inside out” arguments that pervaded the book as Yan Haili and those deceitful operatives she had become involved with began to manipulate the system for their own benefit through lies intimidation and corruptionDanlin landed a job as an investigative journalist with GNA Global News Agency known for exposing the truth about the corruption in the Chinese government as well as the media When it became known to his boss that Danlin’s ex wife Haili was publishing a non fiction book purporting to be about her own experiences on 911 which was totally false he assigned Danlin the one who knew her best to expose his wife and whoever was backing her At first he objected He believed the public would think he was simply being vindictive Still his boss Kaiming insisted that he take the assignment Her book “Love and Death in September” needed to be exposed for what it was a lieWhen Danlin discovered that Haili had promoted still lies like George Bush was endorsing her book and a major publishing house had already agreed to publish her book and there was also a major movie contract waiting for her he exposed her in an article and received great acclaim No one that she had named had corroborated her claims Danlin’s fifteen minutes of fame was short lived and came with huge conseuences When their crimes were revealed those unsavory characters associated with and backing his wife those strong arms who were in league with the Chinese government retaliated against him with false statements aimed to shame him and blacken his name The fact that the charges they made against him were false was immaterial The compatriots of his ex wife were powerful back in China and China was promoting this corrupt effort to influence the media and control information If they controlled information they could brainwash the public; they could control their knowledgeDanlin was fighting an unknown establishment with great power to do him harm yet he innocently seemed to forge ahead with the encouragement of his boss He expected to win because he believed that in America he had rights and he was doing honorable work by exposing dishonesty He believed he would be supported because he was righting a wrong He believed in freedom; he believed in independence He believed that in the end he would win America and Americans would be behind him Did he underestimate the dishonesty that existed even in America Did he underestimate the idea that everyone was subject to a bribe for the right price Slowly and subtly the deceitful and malicious behavior of Haili and her cohorts revealed that the snake oil salesmen were aligned against him with powerful people supporting them Job like he followed truth and justice but his honesty was paid back with betrayals The underhanded secret tactics were revealed but Danlin seemed to be the only one who cared the only one who held high values and refused to recant his claims His life was being turned upside down by his enemies and he was being betrayed by his friends and fellow workers yet he stayed the course The lies he exposed the bigger the lies they told Misinformation was running rampant and giving truth to the theory that a lie told often enough indeed does become the truth Danlin was maligned by the media and the Chinese government the same government that had at first praised his efforts Those with the least scruples were succeeding Perhaps he was naïve and honest to a fault believing in the “goodness” of his new country without reservation It seemed that neither America nor China were what they were presented as instead they conducted underhanded devious deals in back rooms that skirted the law without the public ever learning about them; if they did learn it was too late to do anything about it The truth in this book is stranger than fiction as evidenced by a recent deal between China and J P Morgan that has just become public In order to obtain financially favorable deals from the Chinese Government they hired unualified family members of the ruling class In much the same way this book’s plot is about the promotion of an unualified author in order to gain control of the media industry in America The Chinese knew if they controlled the media they could control information; if they could control information they could certainly control the people Since all concerned in the power bases of both countries generally wanted to protect the relationship between them many injustices were often overlooked This book surely exposed a clash of cultures in which one pretended to be perfectly high minded while the other blatantly played the game of manipulation Both get away with their deceptions However in America it is actually possible to expose corruptionI believe that one truth is exposed in this book above all others The media does control the dispensation of information Whoever is in charge of the media will ultimately control the ideas that are published and the people’s view and understanding of those ideas will be influenced by whatever they choose to cover The book removed the mask from the face of the government and the fourth estate Corruption is everywhere Still in America when one fails one is able to start again to renew efforts to succeed in a different direction In China however one might be punished in some way and that mark against them would keep them on the blacklist forever Manual of Woody Landscape Plants: Their Identification, Ornamental Characteristics, Culture, Propagation, and Uses it takes to expose her as a fraud But Social State: Thoughts, Stats and Stories about the State of Social Media in 2013 in outing Haili he A Bonus is also provoking her powerful political allies and he will need to draw on all of his journalistic cunning to emerge from this Mod Strømmen (Mod Strømmen, investigation with his career and his life still Game Theory intact A brilliant darkly funny story of corruption Mrs. Armitage: Queen of the Road integrity and the power of the pen The Boat Rocker Cuentos is a tour de force of modern fictio.
