Some things never change...

But TVBS does occasionally switch away from being a KMT mouthpiece! While channel surfing last night, I decided to take the old motto to heart which advises "keep your friends close but your enemies closer." So I turned on a TVBS news talk show, 新聞夜總會. And the opening segment shown here has some interesting rumors, where pro-blue insider commentators suggest that half or more of the newly elected KMT central standing committee gave gifts to voters (against regulations). This was particularly noteworthy because one of Ma's first actions upon coming chairman was to invalidate the results of two members' election to that body on the basis that they gave gifts. Here's the first related clip:



Let's see if anyone else gets punished ...

You talk like the DPP don't do exactly the same.

If you notice on the side, the topic statement is still very pro-ma (not pro-KMT, but pro-Ma). I think those pan-blue commentator just goes with the Ma flow. What Ma wants to create now is probably something like "he is the man." But in fact, he is not really fixing anything (nothing change in the structure). All he is doing is secure more power and stable his positions in KMT, under the name of 'clean up.'
