Shanghai to explore 2028 Olympic bid

According to the above report from Xinhua – is there a better source? – “political advisors in Shanghai have suggested the city should bid to host the 2028 Summer Olympics”.

It is, quite simply, another classic clip from Chinese state-run TV, which checks all the boxes: 

  • flash frames left in the final edit
  • typo on the graphic – 2026, not 2028, of all things
  • corrupted video happily used
  • nonsensical b-roll
  • butchering of names (zhax rogue)

At this point, consider this nothing more than a few officials speculatively trying to make a name for themselves. If Beijing’s 2022 Winter Olympic bid goes well – and it just got a boost with the news that Stockholm is pulling out – consider this one dead in the water.
