Charles Xue

In this image taken from an Aug. 29, 2013 video footage run by China’s CCTV via APTN, Chinese-American investor and blogger Charles Xue confesses to engaging in prostitution during a broadcast from Beijing, China. The broadcast was one of several high-profile, televised confessions, a new tactic by Chinese authorities attempting to scrub information they deem harmful, illegal or false from the public domain, especially from the Internet.
