The spin on Wen's words

Yesterday's speech is being spun differently by green and blue media, with green media emphasizing the "One China" principal and the blue media focusing on Wen's calls for closer economic ties. Oddly, the Central Daily News, a website directly owned by the KMT, has one of the more balanced headlines, though it still spins the "One China" condition as positive.

Also, Hsieh and Chen have both called on Ma Ying-jeou to drop the One China principal since this Tibetan situation, and Ma has responded by saying he thinks Tibet and Taiwan are two different questions, and as a result it's not appropriate to talk about Taiwan in the context of the Tibet situation. He would like everyone to focus more on the Tibetan people's human right and cultural rights instead. In other words, "No."
