DSK animated, in Taiwan

International Monetary Fund's Managing Directo...DSK, left, via Wikipedia
Fascinating media stuff from Taiwan (h/t @volkskrant) where lack of camera's does not stop the fantasy of the local media, as we can see here from the case of former IMF president Dominique Strauss-Kahn. No access to his cell, no problem. Are there no pictures of the supposed rape? We use 3D technology to make it more realistic.

Just to avoid any misunderstanding: the Taiwanese media are a very different creature from the compatriots on the mainland. Taiwanese media are often privately-owned and very competitive. On mainland China, they are all state-owned and while they do compete, they do so with a very narrow bandwidth defined by the censorship. This kind of animation is not yet possible in China, yet, although I assume that many can watch it on the internet.
