Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 506
Chapter 506 – We are the ones!
Feng Yu was happy to see w.a.n.g Junxia, Qu Yunxia and the rest on the news. Look at those footages, especially the footages at the training grounds. The name, Wind, and Rain Training Center was shown clearly in the footages. This would bring in lots of benefits for Wind and Rain brand. The more famous these athletes were, the more rewards he would get, and it would be easier to enter the international market.
Feng Yu had already planned. Tomorrow, he will continue to contact some newspaper agencies, spend some money to get them to publish more reports on these athletes. The reports should claim these athletes could break world records.
Next, it will be the National Games. These athletes will break the world records, and then there will be the World Marathon Cup, where the athletes will win the gold medal. All these will be worth reporting.
When the athletes break the world records, it will be the time for Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise to enter the international market! In other countries, athletes’ influences were greater than China, especially the world record holders!
But as Feng Yu was planning to enter the overseas market, there were articles published on the papers about Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise!
“The exposed of fake health products was a plot!”
“Someone made up fake news to sell their medicines!”
“Bing city Pharmaceutical Enterprise was the one behind this!”
The headlines of all major newspapers in China were news of Coach Ma bashing of Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise. The articles reported him as the victim, and he does not know that the Chinese Turtle Essence was a fake product. When the product was exposed, he immediately donated the endors.e.m.e.nt fees and the proceeds he got from the Energy of Life out. All of which were used to compensate the victims.
The boss of the Chinese Turtle Essence, Li Jiayu was an ex-employee of Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise. Coach Ma was tricked to endorse this product as he thought this was a reputable brand. The lines in the commercials were given to him by someone else, and he had signed a contract. He had to say those lines. He felt that all these were a plot. If not, why did Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise’s medicines appeared so suddenly when all the health products disappeared from the market?
Coach Ma made lots of accusations on Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise. He also claims that because of this incident, he does not have any more athletes training under him.
Coach Ma also added that many countries had offered him high salaries for him to coach their athletes, but he refused. He wants to do his part for China and train more Chinese athletes.
If it were not for him, the athletes would not be able to achieve the results they got at the World Championships. The athletes were ungrateful to him! These athletes had betrayed him one month ago. Can those athletes improve so fast? Those athletes’ performances were all because of his training!
After the athletes’ switch coaches, they endorsed for Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise. Did they really take those medicine? All were lies. They were all lying!
Coach Ma could only do this to attract attention. This was the only way for his leaders to notice him. Although he would surely be punished, if he does not do this, he would be finished. He was heavily in debt!
Zhang Ruiqiang, the General Manager of Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise and a few other people called Feng Yu to discuss how they should get respond to these allegations. If this was not handled well, then their sales will be significantly affected.
Feng Yu was glad that the internet at this time was not popular when he saw the articles in the newspapers. Also, the TV media did not dare to report on this. It was only newspapers. This was something he could handle easily.
The consequences of newspaper reports were clear. All the reporters will publish similar stories and will create many rumors to blow up the matter. Reports of good news were not as enticing to the readers compared to negative press.
This was just arguing through media. Since when did Feng Yu lose in an argument?
Feng Yu gathered some information, and after verifying the information, he asked the General Manager of Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise to organize a press conference. In this era, only the Government will have press conferences. Even the celebrities do not have press conferences. When Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise organizes a press conference, all the reporters were excited as this was something new. All of them wanted to gather more information from Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise, and now, the company was willing to release more details.
“I shall now talk about the ridiculous accusations made by Coach Ma about our company! First, the Chinese Turtle Essence is set up early last year and was set up before Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise. Secondly, Li Jiayu was a salesman from XX Pharmaceutical Factory. But Li Jiayu had only worked for one month. This XX Pharmaceutical Factory was one of the companies that were merged to become Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise. XX Pharmaceutical Factory was a joint-venture, and the main shareholder was a private individual. Thirdly, our medicines were developed by the Professors from Beijing Universities and had International standards certifications. We will be exporting our products to other countries soon. There are absolutely no problems with the quality of our products. Fourthly, not a single part of our commercials was false. Every sentence is true!”
“Fifth, from what we understand, Coach Ma had taken out 11 million RMB was not because he wanted to donate that amount. This amount was confiscated by the government! This was different from what he claims! Sixth, Coach Ma claims that the athletes were able to achieve their results because of his training. What about the rest of the coaches? Can one person personally train dozens of athletes? Seventh, Coach Ma said he was the victim in the health products scandal. But has everyone forgotten what those athletes said? Why did they demand a change of coach? Eighth, Coach Ma claims that the athletes’ performances will drop after he left. I do not think so. I believe that these athletes will perform better under the guidance of the new coach. They will surely break the world record!”
All the reporters were excited by the General Manager’s words. All of Coach Ma’s accusations were reb.u.t.ted. The General Manager was implying that Coach Ma was making false allegations against Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise and had denied all of Coach Ma’s claims!
“How do you explain about the rise of your company’s products after the health products were taken off the shelves? Although your products are all medicines, people are treating them as health supplements.” A reporter asked.
“What’s wrong with this? The health products are taken off the shelves is because there are problems with their products. Our products do not have any problems and are trusted by consumers. The consumers want to increase their nutrients intake, and they buy our products. This is very normal.”
“Coach Ma had claimed that Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise was the one behind the exposing of the fake health products. Do you admit it?” Another reporter asked a tough question.
Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise General Manager smiled: “That’s right. We are the ones!”
The reporters were in an uproar. Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise was indeed the one who exposed those fake health products. That means Coach Ma’s accusation was true. Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise really have something to do with the health product scandal!
Bing City Government officials by the side were also shocked. How can the General Manager say that? Regardless if you had anything to do with the scandal, you should not admit it. Was there something wrong with your brains?!
The Bing City Pharmaceutical Enterprise General Manager continued: “What’s wrong with us exposing those fake products? Did we do anything wrong?”
The reporters were stunned. That’s right. What’s wrong with exposing those fake products?!
