    This day and year mismatch about Obama shows how reliable our news sources are. They even failed at doing copy paste job. Leave alone investigation and sting operations.

    Shame on American public. How can you vote racist Donald Trump 13 points, and Dalai Lama just 1 point?

    Any paper that lists racist, and heartless people like Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, and George W Bush( remember disasterious Irag war) are not worth a piece, and should be trashed.

    But I like Tibetan Journal for spinning this as a good news.
