When the communist threw out the foreign journalist in Tibet, it became a public relations disaster for the communist. This left the bias Western news media no choice but to abandon their love affair with communism and support the Tibetan Buddhist monks. Recently the overlords of the Middle Kingdom permitted 20 selected journalist (except CNN, who can blame them for excluding CNN?), and some diplomats to travel to Tibet. As a result of this dog bone thrown at the slanted Western news media, That Dallas Morning news who one time reported China "annexed' Tibet, now reports that Tibet is a region of China. So the comrade commissars have one a little victory here. Just like their hero once said, (paraphrasing here): every great journey begins with a first step.
