But I always found Mr. Chan entertaining enough in a lighthearted way, although not nearly as much as my younger daughter. Not any more.
Last month in a Chinese TV interview only now seeing wider circulation Chan called the United States "the most corrupt (country) in the world."
Although statistics tell a different story: The Corruption Perception Index ranks China 80th with the US coming in far better at #19 among 174 countries (with No. #1 being the country with the least perception of corruption.)
Sure Jackie has a First Amendment right to say whatever he wants. Well, in the United States anyway. In China, branding that nation as "most corrupt" will get you jail time -- or run over by a tank.
