外文标题：Chinese tycoon wants to buy Wall Street Journal
BEIJING: Chinese tycoon Chen Guangbiao has reaffirmed his plans to buy an American newspaper after his failure to acquire the New York Times.
"I am going to talk to the Wall Street Journal and find out if it is up for sale," he told Sinovision, a New York-based Chinese TV channel, on Wednesday.
Chen apparently enjoys the Communist Party's backing as it is unusual for Chinese businessmen to announce such plans. The official Xinhua news agency usually describes him as a "high profile Chinese philanthropist".
"I am very good at working with Jews," Chen said. He said he was aware that Jews own many American newspapers. "I can comfortably run an American newspaper because I have equally competent IQ and EQ compared to Jews.''
Chen is believed to have circulated a business card in New York in which he describes himself as "the most influential person of China", "China moral leader", and "most well-known and beloved Chinese role model". A photograph of the card, which includes his photograph, has gone viral over the Internet.
The New York Times website is banned in China. But Chen had earlier said he wanted to own and work on "rebuilding its credibility and influence" by reforming its coverage of China.
Chen blamed himself for ruining his chances of meeting New York Times shareholders by leaking his plans to the media. "I am entirely to blame for this," he said.
Seems like propaganda.Never seen anyone beating drum before even knowing if the property is up for sale!
Seems china is more marketing it's self to be accepted as a developed super power when all that RnD comes from flicking US designs . Seems china is biting more than what it can chew

I'd be happy to sell my house if he's willing to pay 100 times the market rate.

Not going to happen, especially when he uses such language towards people of Jewish faith. The government would also block the sale. As long as China continues to shut American media, the US government is not going to allow them to purchase a major media outlet in the States. Keep dreaming Chen.

China is china only. can do anything.
Smooth and cunning? (The Pacific)
China quietly, secretly, surrepticiously eating up the financial world. Maybe its a PLA penetration into USA culture to indoctrinate USA into believing China is a friend. Get to close then China will bonk the USA on the head and the USA will become red. Is it not possible? Smooth and cunning is the dragon.
Not good for USA!

I don't think the WSJ is for sale.
Give it up Buddy. You are not going to become owner of the WSJ so keep dreaming. Don't care how much money you've got, a group of US billionaires will join forces and buy the WSJ before you ever will.

US Capitalism, India's inefficient/corrupt bureaucracy coupled with third rate politicians, gave rise to China - the giant rogue nation with allies like North Korea, Pakistan, Syria, Sudan. Had India got it's priorities right & with able leadership, India would have had atleast half the 10 Trillion $ reserves China currently has (unlike paltry 200 Bil $ - mostly through FII investments in stock market). That would have changed the world order totally. India can't even take on Pak on their own.

I do wonder where you get your facts from. Here are the figures from the IMF. China Forex reserves as of 2012 stood at $3.56 Trillion USD. India has $295 Billion in the same year.
