> It's the eye-roll China doesn't want you to see. A Beijing reporter is in hot water for rolling her eyes on national television. Stealing the thunder from China's Annual Session Parliament on Tuesday. It happened at a sideline Q&A for high level officials, where local and state media are expected to throw softball questions.
But for Liang Xiangyi, a TV reporter from a financial news outlet, all of this was apparently too much to bear. Chinese sensors are erasing what they can, but it seems it's a little too late. GIFs and video of the moment have spread through the web like wildfire. Some claiming this was the most interesting part in China's congress.
An event that's usually highly orchestrated and under tight control.
One commentator said it demonstrated how the questions being asked there have no substance and were totally for show. A colleague of Liang says she's currently pulled from coverage of the congress, but still remains with the company.
