Chen Meng, One of the Producers of the "Tiananmen Square Self Immolation" Hoax, Received Karmic Retribution and Died of Cancer
(Clearwisdom.net) Editors' note: In both Western and Chinese cultures, the principle of karmic retribution, that is, being held ultimately accountable for one's own actions, is widely accepted. The fundamental teaching of Falun Gong is the characteristic of the universe, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. The universe will reward acts that are in harmony with this principle, while doing things such as beating, torturing and murdering people will incur karmic retribution. Stated another way, good deeds will be rewarded with good, while evildoings will meet due retribution. Articles such as this one are meant as a compassionate reminder of this principle to those who would commit wrongdoing. While many of those who persecute Falun Gong are merely "following orders," the universal law requires that they, too, be held responsible for their actions, and that only by reversing their course of wrongdoing may they escape retribution.
Chen Meng, died of stomach cancer on December 23, 2008, in the Beijing Tumor Hospital. He was 47 years old. Chen Meng, who changed his name from Chen Xiaobing, was born in 1961. He graduated in 1983 from Harbin Industry University, where he received his Optical Engineering degree. He was assigned to and worked for the Aerospace Department Youth Corps Committee. At the time, according to a close schoolmate, he was devastated after being dumped by his first love, a female singer. Heartbroken, he drunk himself into a stupor. After coming to, he made a pledge. He said, "If I don't become outstanding in my career, I would rather not be a human being!" He used his family background (his mother works for a broadcasting station as a senior editor) to enter CCTV, where he changed his name to Chen Meng. In July 1993, he joined "Eastern Space and Time," where he took the post of the Edge Column and become the producer for the show called "Life and the Space." For money and power, Chen Meng began stooping to any level. As a journalist, he had the duty and responsibility to bring the truth to the public. Rather than upholding his journalistic integrity, Chen Meng participated in creating the lie that became the "Tiananmen Square Self-Immolation Event."
For several years, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) under the leadership of Jiang Zemin had attempted to persecute and destroy Falun Gong and Falun Gong practitioners. After several unsuccessful attempts, Jiang Zemin and the Luo Gan gang attempted to turn public favor against Falun Gong by staging the "Tiananmen Square Self-Immolation Event." One person died during the hoax, and an entire nation was set against a group of innocent people, all because of the machinations of Jiang Zemin. Chen Meng was one of the two producers of the show called "Focal Point Interview" that was used to frame Falun Gong.
However, the truth came out. The propaganda used to frame Falun Gong failed miserably because of obvious inconsistencies in video footage and the medical impossibilities of what happened. The staged self-immolation has been analyzed and observed by the International Education Development (IED) and many other international organizations. They all come to the same conclusion--that the event was falsified by the CCP. At the 53rd session of United Nations Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights, IED condemned the CCP actions, calling it "state terrorism" and saying that what the CCP has done "produces far more gross violations of human rights than any other form of terrorism".(see statement) Chen was also called for investigation by the international human rights organization "World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong." After that, he never dared step foot into a free, democratic country.
In China, because the Party controls every aspect of the media, the Chinese people have been brainwashed and deceived by the CCP to aid in the persecution of Falun Gong. Chen Meng's career-making story was based on lies and deceit. In January 2001, after producing his piece slandering Falun Gong, he was promoted and became the assistant director of the "News Commentary Department" in charge of programs such as "Tell the Facts" and "News Investigation."
At time of his death, he was an assistant director in the Society Topic Department of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Television Station. He was the former Assistant Director for the News Commentary Department. According to media reports, a mourning hall was set up in the CCTV Station's South Courtyard. A memorial service was conducted at Eight Treasure Mountain (Babaoshan). More than a thousand mourners participated, including the station manager and reporters. It is rare for the CCTV to treat a producer with such honor.
After suffering terribly with cancer, he gave doctors the order to discontinue treatment and let him die. Unknown millions are suffering and dying because of the lies Chen Meng spread to advance himself. Yet, in the end, he suffered a miserable and painful death. Let this be a warning to those who would put their own personal gain before the lives of others.
