This is absolutely insane!
Chinese security went and interrupted a live report and apprehended a journalist from the Netherlands while he was on air.
Here's the tweet translated through Google:
Unimaginable. Report on the #Olympics in China. @sjoerddendaas taken away live in the NOS News by a security guard. Not a word of Chinese could beat that.
Sjoerd den Daas is the reporter in this clip. You can tell from his Twitter profile that he's not a big fan of the Communist Party in China and is critical of the regime.
I don't speak a word of Dutch or Chinese, but I can tell you that Sjoerd must have been talking about something the Chinese don't want to get out of their country.
Take this with a grain of salt, but this is a translation a random Twitter user from the Netherlands provided:
At least, from this, it doesn't appear that the reporter thinks he's in any imminent danger.
But the idea that this tyrannical, dictatorial regime gets to set the rules for journalism for other countries is insane.
Hey, libs. This is what an attack on the free press looks like.
China is an evil communist nation.
They don't deserve to host the Olympics, ever.
