It is mainly about money and the corruption and waste that comes from money. The vote campaigns and fan clubs raise millions.
With that kind of money involved, accusations against Tony's parents -- drugs, prostitution and organized crime -- or the wasting of vast volumes of dairy products is going to get investigation from law enforcement.
That is on top of stories starting from the very first China PD101 that fan clubs were raising literally millions of dollars more for their trainees than the ones who got into the debut lineups. So either those millions went into something else other than voting or the votes were ignored even after spending. Either way, grand larceny was involved if true and that is going to bring in law enforcement.
If their is any wrongdoing, hopefully Tencent and Baidu will get a massive fine like Alibaba for breaking antitrust laws. These giant tech companies are trying to monopolize everything.
You got your wish! But we don't know what's the impact on shows. There'll be less sponsorship money and some programs might be hesitant to commit to these big shows. There already rumors that Chuang 2022 interviews had stopped.
"Chinese authorities ban competition shows from using voting systems that require fans to spend money to vote following iQIYI's milk-wasting scandal
By Chen Xi

Chinese competition reality shows are no longer allowed to set up systems in which fans can spend money to vote for their favorites, according to a new notice issued by the Beijing Municipal Radio and Television Bureau on Monday. The announcement comes after the hit show Youth With You Season 3 found itself at the center of a scandal in which tons of bottled milk was bought and wasted by fans who were trying to keep their favorite idols on the show.
According to the notice, the programs are strictly prohibited from setting up voting systems that require or encourage people to "vote by spending money" such as purchasing certain goods or memberships on video platforms to support competitors. Data fraud and participation by minors has also been banned.
According to media reports, these types of voting systems have had a huge impact on the number of subscribers to shows. For example, after the release of competition reality show Sisters Who Make Waves, streaming platform Mango TV saw an increase of more than 28 million users.
Shi Wenxue, a cultural critic based in Beijing, told the Global Times on Monday that this notice is sure to impact membership registration rates and audience viewership on these video platforms.
"The release of this notice is more targeted, especially after the scandal with Youth With You Season 3, but I don't think it will give a big hit on the shows as they can recover and continue earning profit by adjusting the competition system," Shi noted, adding that the way that Japan promotes their idol bands can be a favorable idea.
For instance, in Japan fans can earn a special coupon by buying a band's albums. These coupons allow them to attend events with certain activities, such as giving fans the opportunity to hold hands with their idols, such as members of the Japanese idol group AKB48.
"The connection between sponsors and video platforms have been weakened by the release of the notice. Sponsors will not be able to directly link their products with the voting system of the shows anymore, and the normal way of promoting through advertisement can be acceptable," said Luo Ting, a teacher in media and public affairs at China's Communications University."
I just hope the right reforms take place just the same as Fan Bingbing scandal for dramas. I mean corporations and celebrities already earn a lot of money but still too greedy. An example of it is in the movie industry. Directors get a certain budget from studios and they can keep all the money if there are leftover. If a movie budget is $100 million and the director completed the movie in $70 million, he/she gets to keep the remaining $30 million. That's just absurd. No Hollywood or any movie studio in the world does such practice. No wonder we see a lot of crappy Chinese movies being made. Too much greed.
Dealing drugs is very bad in China as death penalty is the highest punishment. There was recent nationwide campaign against food wasting. So it's a double whammy for Youth With You.
I hope Chinese officials probe the vote rigging of these shows. Fans actually paid to get their favorites in but were rigged out at the end by producers. That is committing fraud and should be punished.
Sorry but the Qing dynasty was a Manchu dynasty and the Yuan dynasty was a Mongol dynasty.
None of them are Chinese dynasties.
One of the slogans from the Chinese was to overthrown the Mongol and Manchu barbarians who conquered China.
This is used as a argument by some Chinese people use to say that all the Korean traditional dress and all the Vietnamese traditional dress are all traditional Chinese dresses is because there is the Chaoxianzu ethnicity who are Koreans and the Gin ethnicity who are Vietnamese living in territories under the control of the People's Republic of China and are officially recognized by that State so they are Chinese. This is non-sense.
They are Chinese dynasties. They even use Chinese as main language, including other aspects of Chinese culture. I guess you didn't read my post regarding Chinese dynasties succession. Why do you bring up traditional dresses? Some hardcore Koreans claim China copied their dress that sparked controversy. Even Japan do not deny Chinese influence in their culture. Chinese people never claim Koreans or Vietnamese copied their dress. This is just another anti China propaganda piece by Chinese and China loving people like yourself. Again Chinese people does not consist of one ethnicity. You are just a racist claiming other ethnic groups are not Chinese. Are you really Chinese at all? Everything you post is anti China to the max.
I think you guys better chill out now. Otherwise this thread is going to get locked, and I'm considering contacting the mod if you don't stop. This isn't a political thread.
It's better to lock because too much trolling and politics are toxic for this forum.
You know that there was a State called the Mongol Empire who conquered China and killed and raped countless of Chinese people ?
The Mongol Empire was never part of China, it invaded China and massacred countless Chinese people.
The Republic of China led by the Chinese Nationalist party was never a fascist State. That is communist propaganda.
Only 100 000 people killed by the Chinese communist party ? That number is way too low.
Joe Biden has been bribed by the Chinese communist party.
I don't want China to be poor and weak but to be rich and powerful under a unified democratic Chinese State and not under a Chinese communist dictatorship.
Stop lecturing me about history you don't even understand. Mongolia was part of Qing Dynasty. All of territory of the Qing was left to Republic of China but they lost Mongolia and many other territories due to their incompetence. Even Yuan Dynasty, led by Mongols, was just another successive dynasty in Chinese history. Chinese people does not comprise of a single ethnicity. Han is the dominant culture. Every other non Han Chinese dynasties continued the Chinese civilization. That's why Chinese civilization is the only continuous civilization in the world. If ROC was not fascist, they wouldn't have been overthrown. They implemented the longest marshal law in human history when they fled to Taiwan. If that was not fascist enough, you can call whatever you want. Show me proof Biden is bribed or it's just another lie made up by you. A democratic China already failed in the name of the Republic of China. Why do you want China to continue in that death path? Because you want China to be poor and weak. People's Republic of China will exceed USA soon but you don't seem to be happy at all.
The 70 million deaths came from the book "Mao: the Unknown Story".
The Republic of China doesn't want to reunify China under a Communist dictatorship but want a unified democratic China.
You didn't answer my question :
"Why should Mongolia be part of China ?"
What is 1450 ?
Mao the Unknown Story is just another propaganda piece to demonize Chinese leaders. Nothing new. Actual people that got killed by CPC was around 100 thousand. Republic of China led by KMT, was a fascist government that got overthrew by Chinese people led by CPC and founded People's Republic of China or New China. ROC had already ended in the mainland from 1911-1949 that brought the most suffering for Chinese people in history. I have already provided examples of their wrongdoings. In regards to women rights, the best job during the ROC was being a prostitute, and the second was being a mistress. Women under New China hold up half the sky. Even Biden quoted Mao for that. 63% of self made billionaire women are from China. So much women oppression in China right? Mongolia was part of Chinese territory which I have stated earlier so many times but you still failed to understand. Not sure why you still preferred a failed government in the KMT all over again. Only conclusion I can think of is that you want China to be poor and weak just like those self hating and wasp worshiping Chinese.
I am not part of the Falun Gong.
The Chinese communist party is responsible for the deaths of more than 70 million people.
The communists around the world are responisble for more the deaths of more than 100 million people.
Saying that the Republic of China, the Republic of Korea, the Republic of Vietnam, the Khmer Republic, the Kingdom of Laos, North Yemen and the Federal Republic of Germany are puppets of the United States are typical communist propaganda lies.
Mongolia is supposed to be independent.
Why should Mongolia be part of China ?
The People's Republic of China censor much more than the Republic of China.
The Republic of China is a democratic State while the People's Republic of China is a communist dictatorship.
The health safety in the Republic of China is much more safer than the health safety in the People's Republic of China.
The Chinese Nationalist party had a lot of corruption in the past and killed a lot people but the Chinese communist party is way more corrupted than the Chinese Nationalist Party and killed more people than the Chinese Nationalist party.
At least, the Chinese Nationalist party managed to transform the Republic of China from a dictatorial State to a democratic State unlike the Chinese communist party.
KMT committed way more atrocities than CPC but you still think Republic of China is better, including the made up numbers you provided. KMT lost so many Chinese territory, including Mongolia, but you think they are better and hates CPC for reunifying China. ROC is supposed to be democratic but they censor more than evil CPC and that is better too. Difference is that Republic of China make up lies and gets away with it. Lying in China news will get you arrested. A democratic ROC is even more corrupt than a dictatorship PRC. Eating radioactive food and poisoned pork is healthier because it is democractic? LOL. You even lied about KMT and DPP loving Chinese and China more CPC but I still have not gotten an answer from you. So you claim you are not part of the falun gong. Are you part of 1450?
I care for the Chinese people and the China. Mainland China could have become as developped as the Republic of China if they were still under control of the Republic of China. The Chinese communist party are a bunch of liars, murderers and thieves who care more about themselve than the people. The Chinese Nationalist Party and the Democratic Progressive Party of the Republic of China care more about the Chinese people than then Chinese communist party of the People's Republic of China.
Thanks for showing your true colors. KMT was responsible for 60+ million deaths and 120+ million homeless during Republic of China. KMT allowed USA to give Diaoyu Islands to Japan, allowed Japan to take Manchuria without a fight, allowed Mongolia to become independent, allowed millions to suffer while taking all the foreign aid for themselves. KMT took all the gold and money from 400 million people and wasted in in Taiwan without developing anything valuable in return. DDP are anti China party, made up of Japanese uncle toms and Chinese quislings. They are dechinasizing Taiwan at the moment. They even call Chinese people 支那, chinks. They built a shrine worshiping Japanese war criminals. Taiwan is the only place in the world who keeps calling Wuhan virus or Chinese virus. They sure do love Chinese as much as you do. Not sure if you truly believe that or just pretending. Are you part of the falun gong cult by any chance? They spread the same propaganda as you.
China under CPC lifted 800 million out of poverty, turned China from 7th poorest country to second largest economy in the world, developed China into a military superpower, sports powerhouse, top infrastructure in the world, top high speed train system in the world, top 5g tech, 93%+ support from Chinese people, etc. What have Republic of China done in Taiwan? Becoming a puppet of the US, rampant corruption where you have president smuggling cigarettes but no charges, DDP members running over civilian but no DUI charges, gangsters part of the government, crumbling infrastructure due to corruption, water shortages due to corruption, buying radioactive food from Japan and ractopamine pork from US without a care for people's health, censoring TV channels and people because they don't follow independence agenda, promote racism against mainland Chinese, spreading fake news on Chinese people and China like the virus conspiracy, so and much more. It's so obvious you are one of those anti China trolls pretending to love Chinese people and China.
Sorry, the Chinese communist party doesn't represent the Chinese people and China. Chinese people are Chinese people. A political party is a political party. You are brainwashed by the Chinese communist party. If I said you that I prefer the Chinese nationalist party or the the Democratic Progressive Party in the Republic of China rather than the Chinese communist party of the People's Republic of China, does it mean that I am against the Chinese communist party so that I am against the Chinese people and China ? No. The Chinese communist party is only a political party like there are many political parties around the world.
The government represents the people. That's what the government is for. Chinese government is lead by CPC, which composes of Chinese people who loves and cares for China, not quislings and uncle toms from KMT or DDP. If you support those parties, it means you support Taiwan's independence, which all real Chinese from China and overseas opposes. I think you are the one that is brainwashed here. CPC and Chinese government works for the Chinese people. If they don't, they will be overthrown just like KMT. Simple as that. CPC already lift 800 million out of poverty. If you are against that, I don't have anything to say.
I don't hate China. I don't like the Chinese communist party. The Chinese communist party will try to impute their propaganda in the mind of people that if you don't like the Chinese communist party then you don't like the Chinese people and China. I don't worship white people.
This is the same propaganda mindset by anti China people. Communist Party of China represents China. It includes all aspect of Chinese people, including taxi drivers, teachers, nurses, farmers, scientists, athletes, celebrities, etc. When you say you don't like CPC, it means you don't like all those Chinese people. Not all members of the CPC works for the Chinese government, which composes of over 400 million people from all of Chinese society. It's the same excuse use every time to spread Anti China propaganda. If you don't hate China or Chinese people, stop spreading anti China propaganda, especially relating to the virus. It contributes to the rise in anti Asian violence and racism. You won't be exempt if you are Asian no matter what your political beliefs are.
COVID-19 came from Communist China and the Chinese communist party is trying to whitewash history by saying that it didn't came from Communist China otherwhise people will question the management of Mainland China by the Chinese communist party then want to take down the Chinese communist party. If there are ignorant people attacking people who are Chinese in their eyes then it is the fault of their education and not due to a so called racist far-right white supremacist conspiracy. There is politics everywhere even when it come to the music industry.
Not really, the virus was found earlier in other places like Italy and Brazil. The outbreak was from China but origin still unknown. If it did come from a lab, most likely it came from Fort Detrick. Its funny self hating and wasp worshipping Chinese think they can suck up to white people by spreading virus conspiracy will keep them exempt from being attacked. Nobody will care if you hate China. Racist will attack you because of your Asian face.
Crazy fans still exist.
It's ironic that he wants to leave the show when everybody else want to stay. Idol career is not fair indeed.
Don't think Tencent cares because it is a business. They are not actually into making a real group.
