Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa was the seventh most-reported celebrity in Greater China newspapers this year, according to a City University survey, lagging well behind the leader, US President George Bush. President Jiang Zemin was second and former Taiwan president Lee Teng-hui third. The survey was carried out by the university's Language Information Sciences Research Centre based on reports by selected newspapers in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Beijing and Shanghai. Reporting of the September 11 terrorist attacks swept Osama bin Laden to fourth, with Premier Zhu Rongji next and Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi sixth. Former US president Bill Clinton trailed Mr Tung in eighth and the top 10 was completed by Russian President Vladimir Putin and US Secretary of State Colin Powell. The centre said Mr Bush's involvement in the war on terrorism and his visit to Shanghai in October had forced him to the top. Taiwan President Chen Shui-bian did not appear on the list because he was seldom mentioned in Beijing and Shanghai newspapers.
