Deputy Minister of publicity “three unclear”
The reporter asked vice minister Bian who gave them the stolen cell phones. The person in charge said he didn’t know them.
Who are the people who beat the reporters? unclear. Why stop the reporters? unclear. Why do you brush your mobile phone? It’s not clear.
So what will happen next? Vice Minister Bian said an investigation would be launched, but they were silent about how.
This time, besides the mobile phones robbed by reporters, is there anything else.
Vice Minister Bian said, “apologize.”.
“They came here just to apologize to us, but they didn’t say anything because of something,” the reporter said.

The reporter denied being beaten by the family of the dead
Bian, Deputy Minister of Propaganda Department of Yuanyang County Party committee, said in an interview that some family members of the deceased did not agree with the reporter’s interview and there was a conflict with the reporter. At that time, there were two village cadres present, and their families were excited. These people could not control the scene.
When the reporter asked Bian about it, he said that he heard from the party secretary of the original Xingjie district office that it was a reporter from his family.
A number of journalists have denied this. Less than half an hour before the incident, the reporter had a good communication with the family members, who agreed to follow the reporter to the burial site. The family members said that they were grateful for the media’s report, “but there are some words (we) that can’t be said indiscriminately”, and agreed that the reporter should follow the family members to the cemetery.
The reporter said that according to the comparison between the families interviewed in recent days and the people in conflict at the scene of the incident, no one in conflict had been seen.
