A reporter from Southern Metropolis Daily leaving their own newspress flag instead of Chinese national flag on the disputed Huangyan Island draws criticism from Chinese netizens.

May 9, 2012, Beijing - On April 20 during the one-month lasted China-Philippine conflict over disputed Huangyan Island in South China Sea, a reporter from Southern Metropolitans Daily traveled to the waters of Huangyan Island with a Chinese patrol ship and stepped on the South Reef of the Huangyan Island.

The reporter took several photos of the South Reef, the symbol of Huangyan Island (Philippines call it Scarborough Shoal) and then left the newspress flag of Southern Metropolitans Daily on the island.

The photos were showed on almost all major Chinese news portal and that the reporter placed their own newspress flag instead of Chinese national flag on the island draw heavy criticism from Chinese netizens. Chinese netizens regard the reporter and the newspress as selfish and think the reporter should have put national interest over their own benefit on this "large affair" and erected a Chinese national flag on the island to declare Chinese sovereinty.

Following are some comments on QQ news page:

The difficulty of stepping on the Huangyan Island does not prevent you from advertising your shit newspaper. Why didn't you change your shit newspress flag to Five-Star flag? I really do not know what to say to you!

Why? Why not erect our national flag on the island? Does the island belong to China? You would rather have a piss on the island and then write "Southern Metropolis Daily has visited this place."

What our Chinese first think of is always self.

China-Philippines Conflict over Huangyan Island in South China Sea

On April 10, a Philippine warship entered the island's territorial waters, dispatched personnel to harass Chinese fishing boats and attempted to detain Chinese fishermen.

Beijing said the move infringed on China's sovereignty. Two Chinese patrol ships in the area later came to the fishermen's rescue, and the warship left.

But the impasse continued in the wake of the incident as the Philippine side continued to send government vessels to the lagoon of Huangyan Island.

Manila also repeatedly made erroneous remarks that mislead the public in the Philippines and the international community and played up public feelings.

Beijing repeatedly urged Manila to withdraw all Philippine vessels in the island waters and warned Manila not to disturb operations by Chinese fishing boats as well as the Chinese government's law enforcement vessels.

Philippine vessels were reportedly still in China's territorial waters on May 8 Tuesday.

An opinion article in Tuesday's People's Daily Overseas Edition warned the Philippine side not to take China's sincerity as a chance to bully China.

Given recent challenges by the Philippines, China's patrol ships will remain alert in the waters of Huangyan Island, and Chinese fishery administration vessels will also ensure that Chinese fishermen can perform their jobs in their traditional fishing areas without interference, Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs Fu Ying said.
