The coverage on the democracy wall of Peking University was considered to be an experience of promoting a big-character poster. The news was regarded as an incitement to the colleges and universities to raise different opinions and to verbally attack the people. This coverage was the most extreme case in denying the leadership of the Communist Party. The reporter of the coverage was also misrecognized as a "rightist." This kind of criticism and approach was undoubtedly exaggerated. In any case, the many news reports, which covered big-character posters and the bourgeois democracy symbol "Hyde Park," were the controversy.
