My comment:
(a) The first paragraph talks about anti-corruption efforts of the founding emperor of Ming dynasty. Taiwanese had no idea about any of them (when I was there). How come a foreign journalist know more? Is it a common knowledge in China?
(b) “After the party chief of the city of Guangzhou was put under investigation last week, the Global Times ran an editorial aimed at bucking up the masses. ‘Keep faith in nation's anti-graft campaign,’ the piece was headlined.”
