Ma ventures into the Green Jungle

Following up on his recent interview with the Liberty Times, President Ma Ying-jeou will have television interviews with the two largest green-leaning television news stations, SET-TV and Formosa TV. Should be fun!

As I mentioned, I though the Liberty Times reporter conducting the interview did all right, and that Ma was weak on a few questions in particular, but the tone from the paper seemed a bit overtly hostile and the questions were not Tim Russert enough for my liking.

Meanwhile, Frank Hsieh will begin hosting a radio program.

I assume you're being facetious, because saying Ma is going into a "jungle" is kind of like saying that "heroic" Chou Hsi-wei (周錫瑋) -- as the media portrayed him -- "led a hunt for a tiger." (As the evidence showed all along, it turned out to be stray dogs.)

Ma won't be taking live questions. Callers must submit them in advance, either by either voice or fax. That's Ma Ying-jeou for ya!

And when the blue media kisses Ma's ass instead of asking tough questions (the exact opposite of what they did under the last administration), there's no reason not to go tough on him.

Of course I'm being facetious.
