Chinese Businessman Looking to Buy NYT: I’m Just as Smart as Jews

By: JTA

A Chinese businessman who is determined to buy an American newspaper said he is just as smart as the Jews who own some of those newspapers.

Chen Guangbiao, chairman of Jiangsu Huangpu Recycling Resources, who made his fortune in recycling construction materials in China, announced late last month that he would travel to New York to meet with shareholders of The New York Times in order to acquire the newspaper. His premature announcement led to the cancellation of the Jan. 5 meeting, according to Forbes.

Earlier this week, Chen said in an interview with Sinovision, a New York-based Chinese television station, that he was investigating whether The Wall Street Journal is for sale.

He said that he was aware that many American newspapers are owned by Jews, and that his IQ, or intelligence quotient, and EQ, or emotional quotient, are “equally competent” as those Jewish owners.

He also added that he is “very good at working with Jews.”

  1. Terrye Kuper says:

    He probably thinks he is smart, but to me he is just another anti-Semite. Ignorant with more money than brains.

  2. Myriam Obadia says:

    Why do people keep on comparing themselves to Jews? He could be content with boasting of his Chinese intelligence and leaving the Jews out of it,for once, couldn't he?

  3. I wasn't aware that you needed a high IQ to own, write, or read the New York Times.

  4. Allan Enkin says:

    IT would be an improvement to the NYT, considering there is no anti-semiticism in Chinese society. The Chinese as well, respect knowledge,honor their ancestors and parents, and respect the law.

  5. he's not smarter or he wouldn't be thinking of buying that toilet rag.

  6. Alan Kardon says:

    Maybe he can take that rag and make it a respectable newspaper.

  7. Anonymous says:

    He obviously bought into the stereotype that Jews own all news media. If only it were true!

  8. Genevieve Begue says:

    Ah ah :D He was obviously not as smart as he thought to generate the cancellation of the meeting he was counting on by publicly displaying his racist stereotypes!

  9. Genevieve Begue says:

    Well… His stereotypical comments sounded pretty antisemitic, didn't they?

  10. Amanda Widom says:

    Is what he said offensive to you?

  11. Genevieve Begue says:

    What he said does hold old and harmful stereotypes…
