Xinwen Lianbo from CCTV-----this is the routine:
The first ten minutes: how busy all the governers are, how hard they are working for the people,how kind the government is to the people;
The second ten minutes: how happy all the Chinese are live their lives, how great all the Chinese are enjoying the governing of the communist party;
The last ten minutes:What a horrible life foreigners are suffering,they have gunshots in schools,wars in the middle east,natural disasters.....
All educated Chinese know about this-----This news broadcasting probably only make fun of those naive,immature foreigners who could understand Chinese!

The routine is true, but I don't agree with your conclusion. There is no sarcastic wordings used.

(Although I'm HongKonger I speak quite standard Mandarin. I learnt it by listening to Xinwen Lianbo)

This is not hard to understand. Bitcoin was mentioned specifically on the communist party's propaganda program, mandated to be aired on a whole buncha channels at a certain time. And, none of the "four horsemen of the infocalypse" were mentioned - money launderers, terrorists, child pornographers/pedophiles, and drug lords - This means that the communist party *does not hate bitcoin* and in fact, *wouldn't mind if chinese people bought some.*

This is not a "OMG it was on the news 5 bajillion people are going to see it and buy it!" If you think OP is claiming this, you are missing the point.

It is actually "OMG this BASICALLY an overt endorsement (as overt as they get, at least) by the communist party, therefore the more conservative businessmen will understand that they are not risking death by investing a little pocket change."

And to a lesser extent, it is "the retarded, brainwashed chinese people" (i.e. probably most of them if it's even remotely like America in terms of average political IQ) have been exposed to bitcoin on TV yet again and might be slightly more interested in getting involved.

All good things.

Choo Choo Choo!!!!

Thanks for elaborating my points. Seriously speaking, someone should now consider to setup Bitcoin ATM in China.

Don't forget who pay those people showing on TV,of course they could not be sarcastic.
Most educated Chinese will read news from some websites.(some webs like news.163.com,or some private webs only for Chinese.)

Sure, Xinwen Lianbo is not even a real news programme. If you want to read real news, you should go elsewhere. Xinwen Lianbo is where people could read the mind of the country's dictator.

yes, this is the point.

it fits well with their desire to rid the world of the USD reserve currency.

Indeed, it does. China's rhetoric on the matter has been getting more aggressive lately. I'm sure many of us have read the report of their official press agency calling for a "de-Americanized world" and new reserve currency:
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-10-13/chinas-official-press-agency-calls-new-reserve-currency

I'm sure they'll want a stronger domestic-consumption economy before *really* trying to stick it to the dollar, but these are multi-decade processes, and they're sowing the seeds. To consider that they may already view bitcoin as an agent to draw demand away from the dollar is fascinating.

This. And who cares about how many people actually watched it? Besides the huge potential legal implications, do you people know how many times the total market cap of Bitcoin the Chinese government has in USD?

Yes, off the top of my head, about 1000x.

(~$2T in USTs / ~$2B marketcap of bitcoin)

It is all rather odd. China still has capital controls, so it is strange that the regime would endorse something that allows those controls to be evaded.

Xinwen Lianbo is unique because it's the only program required to be syndicated to ALL TV stations at 19:00. Basically, when you turn on your TV in China at 19:00, there is nothing else on, except Xinwen Lianbo. It is the voice of the CCP.

Only *retarded, brainwashed Chinese watch that shit* - a quote from my wife and something I would agree with having watched CCTV 9 here before (I stopped watching it years ago as does *anyone* who lives here for more than a year).

Now replace Xinwen Lianbo with Fox, CNN, BBC in prime time (pluse they didnt mention then bitcoin is for drug cartels, phedofile and criminals). Do you see now ......

No, nothing on Fox, CNN, BBC could be comparable with Xinwen Lianbo

Wouldn't it be more like Obama mentioning bitcoin positively on a State of the Union address, which is carried live by all the major networks?

I think that the news in Europe and the US is just more subtle than Chinese State news in it's censoring and agenda pushing. At least it's obvious (more honest...?) when the state is directly telling you what it's plans for everything is.

And what do you get when you turn on your free-to-air TV at 6-7pm in the West? Wall to wall news. All definitely independent of state and corporate interference, of course.
