No questions on missing VP from Chinese media

The disappearance from public life of the Chinese leader in waiting, Xi Jinping, shows how closed China remains. Although the single party Communists make a show of openness, the 11-day vanishing of vice president Xi has the whole country on information lock down.  Has he had a back injury (as the thinnest rumour has said)? Is he on a bender? Lost in traffic? It's a reminder of the timidity and obedience of the media and the absence of any independent political opposition that no one in China will call the Communist Party on this pathetic performance.  RSMM  Voice of america
