TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) – An official in Taiwan’s presidential office has acknowledged that the president prerecorded videos meant to be posted every week on current issues.
Taiwanese media say an Internet user tracked down two of the videos before their release and put them online, raising heated debates about whether President Ma Ying-jeou was misrepresenting the videos by making them so far in advance.
Wang Yu-chi acknowledged the blunder on Sunday, one day after Ma launched the weekly journal, which he said would respond to hot current topics.
Wang says Ma will remake the videos.
