English in China

Did you notice anything wrong with this photo?

China is currently holding the 17th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) (中國共產黨第十七次全國代表大會), which starts on Monday Oct 15th. This is a big event! Reporters from all over the world are in China reporting this event. Surprisingly, the reporters area has something funny to entertain the reporters. The "r" in "Journalist" is missing and becomes "Jounalist".

This is ridicules! "Journalist" is such a simple word! Having a misspelled word in such an international event is simply a big joke! As a Chinese, I do feel very sad. :(
