Don’t Ask Why

The following post from “Beijing Lawyer Cheng Yi (北京律师成义), in which he shares a photo of the still-influential former top Party leader Jiang Zemin on a recent visit to China’s National Museum, was deleted from Weibo sometime before 12:47AM today, December 3, 2014. The post was live for just over half an hour before being removed by censors. [Explore more deleted posts by using the Weiboscope, created by the Journalism & Media Studies Centre.]

Here is a translation of the post, which includes a shortened link to a news page at Sina.com.cn including an apparent news release from the National Museum posted on October 3 this year (about Jiang Zemin’s visit), and a video of the official nightly newscast on CCTV on October 1, 2014, China’s National Day:
