After the handover of Hong Kong to China in 1 9 9 7 , one of the toughest challenges facing the Chinese Communist Party was to gain control over the freewheeling
media there. For more than a century, Hong Kong had been a refuge for dissenting voices in the Chinese world and the prime marketplace for trading rumors and leaks.

You can understand since World War 2 (and also since the fall of the Berlin Wall) Germany is very ultra ultra sensitive to anything that is even remotely a dictatorship, communist, fascist, nazi, ruling, bossy, iron-fisted, cruel, nasty etc etc etc (you get my point)
If this is true so why the germans still stay "sheeple" towards the US?
Or in the germans' viewpoint the US behavior is "clean"? With due respect, but the point is that this german behavior bears a good dose of political ideology

DW could dismiss Chinese employees with pleasure for only a short time, it may not have foreseen the aftermath of this event, the humiliation it received is something hard to get rid of. Is the price too high to pay? But what is done cannot be undone. Any company should be accountable for its own actions.
