Submission + - China Launched Space Lab with Patriotic American S ( 1

hackingbear writes: The lift-off of China's first space lab was flawless. The orbit immaculate. But while China's leaders were celebrating the triumphant launch of Tiangong-1 space lab on Thursday, viewers of state television footage were treated to a bizarre choice of soundtrack: America the Beautiful. "I don't know how to answer your question," Chen Zhansheng of the CCTV propaganda department said [when asked about this]. "I cannot help you." Chinese netizen took the opportunity to ridicule the TV station: (in Chinese) "We played My Mothrland [a patriotic, anti-America song] in the White House, and now we give back by playing patriotic American song in Tiangong. Who said we Chinese are not humorous?" wrote an Internet commentator.
