PEN America imposes double standards of free expression in Hollywood


The US, which stresses political correctness more than ever, does not enjoy so-called freedom of speech as much as it claims. While Hollywood blockbusters have be shown in China, such as superhero movies like Captain America, The Avengers and Spider-Man, to name just a few, will US authorities give the green light to films featuring Chinese heroes? The answer is no. So where does their touted freedom of speech lie?

Does Malaysia want to rock the boat in the South China Sea?

With tensions between China and the US in the South China Sea escalating, these claimants are clearly aware that military conflicts between the two giants in the South China Sea would pose a huge threat to their own security.
