Jiang Zemin, the former president of the country and former general secretary of the Communist Party of China, passed away in Shanghai at noon today (30th) at the age of 96.

During Jiang Zemin's administration, Hong Kong and Macau returned to China and played an important role in the early stage of implementing "one country, two systems".

In 2000, Jiang Zemin met the then chief executive Tung Chee-hwa in Beijing to report on his duties. He was asked by cable news reporter Zhang Baohua whether he was worried about being considered "hand-picked" Tung Chee-hwa to be re-elected as chief executive. Too simple, sometimes naive), became a classic golden sentence.

Approached Hong Kong reporter three times to criticize heavily

In October 2000, Dong Chee-hwa went to Beijing to report on his work to the state leaders. At that time, it was rumored in the political circle that Dong Chee-hwa would be re-elected and won the support of the central leaders. At that time, many reporters asked about other leaders such as the then Vice Premier Qian Qichen, Whether the then Premier of the State Council Zhu Rongji and others supported Dong Chee-hwa's re-election, both of them simply answered or did not respond.

Later, Jiang Zemin met Dong Chee-hwa in Zhongnanhai. When the filming was open, the reporter asked whether the central government supported Tung Chee-hwa's re-election as chief executive. Jiang Chuchu humorously answered "Yes" and "Of course" in Cantonese.

Zhang Baohua asked again, whether expressing "support" in advance would worry the outside world that Tung Chee-hwa was "appointed and hand-picked" by the central government to be re-elected. Interviewed him by American CBS reporter Mike.

Wallace, "How much higher than you don't know", asked Hong Kong reporters to improve their standards, and then added in Cantonese, "Do you know?"

What I said is not that I "hand-picked" him to take office. If you ask me whether I support it or not, I say I support it, and I will tell you this clearly... You have one, and where the world goes, you are better than others. Western journalists run fast, but the questions they ask here and there are too simple, sometimes naive.

Tung Chee-hwa was very embarrassed and said afterwards, "Chairman, I love you"

Afterwards, the reporter was about to ask questions, but Jiang Zemin interrupted in a reproachful tone: "There is a saying in China that 'you get rich with silence'... But I see you are so enthusiastic, it's not good not to say a word... Tung Chee-hwa is now a member of Hong Kong. How can I not support the chief executive? I want to say support, but you say that you have handpicked me, and then criticize me." He also said to the reporters present that if "there are any deviations in future reports, you will be responsible ".

Tung Chee-hwa, who was present at the same scene, was very embarrassed. Later, he told reporters that Jiang Zemin "loves you": "I encouraged you with good intentions and criticized you."

The incident made Zhang Baohua famous. Zhang Baohua said in many interviews that the word "hand-picked" came from the headlines of many newspapers at the time. Any reporter who had the opportunity to ask a question would ask this question.

The YouTube channel Zhang Baohua opened in 2020 is also named after "Too Simple Sometimes Naive", which is Jiang Zemin's criticism of Hong Kong journalists.
