“The average ratings increased by 0.2%.”
As he saw the ratings report, Director Li Huawen was not as happy as before. Instead, he frowned and murmured, “Only the last two episodes of the show are left. No matter what, we must exceed 8%!”
As a director, being able to host the Spring Festival Gala would be an honor for him for the rest of his life.
Li Huawen was a good man, but good people also had desires, not to mention that this desire was to host the Spring Festival Gala!
After praying silently for a while, Director Li Huawen then recalled that he had gone to the Capital University of Science and Technology to do a Chinese Medicine test with Fang Qiu this morning. When he thought of Fang Qiu’s post talking about some breaking news, he suddenly became a little worried.
“This kid isn’t going to make a scene, is he?”
Meanwhile, some netizens were still immersed in the discussion of the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor, while others who were concerned about the news that Fang Qiu was going to tell had already rushed to his Weibo and began to crazily comment and refresh his Weibo.
“I have watched the Young Chinese Medicine Doctor. Hurry up and reveal the news!”
“It’s time. Just tell us what you know.”
“What’s the big breaking news? Are you really going to announce that you will enter the entertainment circle?”
“Master Fang Qiu, come out! I’ve been waiting for your breaking news for so long.”
In the beginning, it was a small group of people.
However, this small group of people attracted other people’s attention while leaving so many comments. Soon after, the audience who finished watching the ninth episode all went to Fang Qiu’s Weibo and urged him to reveal the news.
As the number of people was increasing, someone even came up with a topic #Fang Qiu’s breaking news#.
Undoubtedly, it didn’t take long for this topic to appear on the Hot Search List.
It was 9:50 p.m. in the Dormitory 501 of the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine.
“Fang Qiu, bro!” The three roommates of Fang Qiu who had watched the ninth episode of the show also took part in the topic on Weibo. They each held their mobile phones and laptops. After discussing for a while, Zhou Xiaotian couldn’t help but curiously ask Fang Qiu, who was sitting in front of the desk, “What on earth do you want to reveal?
“You’re going to tell people the relationship between you and our campus belle Jiang Miaoyu, aren’t you?”
Sun Hao said with a smile, “It’s the ninth episode now. People only know that you and our campus belle are classmates. They don’t know you guys are dating. Take a look at how many love letters have been sent to our dorm every day. If you want to make it public, you should hurry up and make them stop fantasizing about you so that these beautiful girls can turn their attention to us.”
“Wonderful.” Zhou Xiaotian’s eyes lit up, and he said, “We’re all good buddies. We can take advantage of your fame to find a girlfriend. Is that all right?”
Zhu Benzheng said seriously, “I don’t think Fang Qiu will talk about his romance. He is going to tell breaking news. How can this be big news?”
As he spoke, the three of them all looked at Fang Qiu.
They saw a lot of medicine on Fang Qiu’s desk.
At this moment, Fang Qiu was taking photos of these drugs with his mobile phone.
Sun Hao asked, “Hey, Fang, what are you doing?”
“You’ll know in a while.” Fang Qiu looked back at the three of them with a smile and then continued to take photos.
The three of them were confused.
After a while, Fang Qiu finished taking photos and went to his bed to send a post.
As they saw that Fang Qiu was going to tell the news, his three roommates didn’t bother him anymore. Each of them took their mobile phones or laptops and started to refresh Fang Qiu’s Weibo frequently.
As expected, about ten seconds later, Fang Qiu’s Weibo was updated.
It was a picture!
In the picture, there was a kind of Chinese Medicine named “Cough-relieving Orange Pill”.
On the package of the medicine, the words “Siqi Pharmaceutical Industry” were absolutely clear.
Although it was night and it was a photo taken on the desk under the bed, the photo was incredibly clear because Fang Qiu’s mobile phone was given by Li Ji. It got a great pixel and had its own illumination function, which helped create an extremely clear photo.
“Attention, everyone, the pesticide residues of this medicine exceeds its standard! Not only will it decrease the property of the Chinese herbs, but it will also lead to health problems like infertility, abnormality, etc.”
As soon as he issued the post, there was an uproar in an instant because a lot of people were waiting for Fang Qiu to disclose the news.
But no one expected that Fang Qiu’s breaking news this time was not that he was going to enter the entertainment circle, nor to announce his love affair or say that he was going to respond to the rumors online. Instead, he was going to challenge Chinese Medicine!
For a moment, many Chinese Medicine doctors who were waiting for Fang Qiu to reveal the news, as well as supporters of Chinese Medicine, frowned.
“What is Fang Qiu doing?”
“This is Chinese Medicine. He exposed that there’s something wrong with the medicine. Isn’t it hurting Chinese Medicine?”
“Is Fang Qiu out of his mind? We just start to have faith in Chinese Medicine. How could he do such a thing? After this revelation, who dares to buy Chinese Medicine?”
“Even if there is something wrong with the medicine, you can’t say it out loud. Now the country is developing Chinese Medicine vigorously. If you do this, Chinese Medicine will be replaced again, won’t it?”
Unlike those who cared about Chinese Medicine, netizens didn’t care whether Fang Qiu’s breaking news was about Chinese herbs or not.
Many of them were interested in Fang Qiu.
“It looks like I didn’t wait for you in vain.”
“Ha-ha, Fang Qiu challenges people again. It’s going to be a big show.”
“Hey, it seems to be a big company this time, and Fang Qiu personally goes to the ring to have a hand-to-hand fight. It’s going to be interesting.”
“I’ve been waiting for a day. Finally, there will be a big show.”
“Where are the people of the State Food and Drug Administration? Come out and check on it quickly. Fang Qiu has found out that there is something wrong with the medicine. Why can’t you find it out?”
As soon as this photo was posted, it was reposted by a large number of netizens.
There was no need to wait for any brewing of the issue because there were too many people waiting for Fang Qiu’s breaking news.
Everyone reposted and spread the news crazily.
There was also a heated discussion on Weibo.
“Is Fang Qiu cracking down on counterfeit medicine?”
“This is Chinese Medicine. Fang Qiu can actually do it?”
“Although that’s the case, it’s a good thing for everyone that he told people the news. Those who are taking this kind of medicine should stop and change into other drugs.”
“Oh, my God. Fang Qiu is really brutal. Is he going to destroy the Chinese Medicine that he has raised up with his own strength?”
“Siqi Pharmaceutical Company? It’s a big company.”
“It is said that this company is a giant of Western Medicine industry in Huaxia, but Fang Qiu is cracking down its Chinese Medicine. I don’t know if there is also a problem with their company’s Western Medicine.”
“The bigger the company is, the more rigorous it should be. Why is it so easy for the medicine of a large company to go wrong?”
“Fang Qiu is so bold that he dares to make trouble for Siqi Pharmaceutical Company.”
“Fang Qiu’s influence on the Internet is too powerful. Whether it’s true or not, the stock price of the Siqi Pharmaceutical Company will definitely decline next Monday.”
“He has touched a raw nerve. Siqi Pharmaceutical Company will at least lose tens of millions!”
Not only did the netizens discuss fiercely, but also all the stock investors, as well as stock analysts, informed the investors under their command to sell off the shares of Siqi Pharmaceutical Company the next day.
As the investors received the news, they were dumbfounded.
Then, they also noticed Fang Qiu’s news, so these people became anxious in an instant.
There was no doubt that as soon as this happened, the stock price of the Siqi Pharmaceutical Company was bound to fall. If this revelation was fake, maybe the stock price of this company could recover a little bit. But if it was true, the stock price would not be able to recover, and it might even fall to the bottom.
How could these people not be anxious?
They had to sell off as soon as possible, otherwise, these stocks would be completely useless.
Of course, some people firmly believed Siqi Pharmaceutical Company was a large company. No matter whether the news was true or not, it was absolutely impossible for Fang Qiu to defeat this company. What was more, such a big company must have a strong capability of dealing with the crisis. As long as their PR department proved that Fang Qiu was wrong, the stock price of the Siqi Pharmaceutical Company would rise instead.
Although the odds were heavily against them, there were still many people who blindly believed Siqi Pharmaceutical Company. They were trying to beat the odds. They bet all their possession on this, thinking that the stock price would not decline, but would rise instead!
As people on the Internet knew about Fang Qiu’s news, countless people rushed to the official Weibo account of Siqi Pharmaceutical Limited Liability Company.
“You’re a big company. You have made so much money in a year. Why are you so evil-hearted to make fake medicine?”
“Black-hearted medicine company, you shall rot in hell!”
“How can you make fake drugs? You bastard! You’re actually killing people in disguise!”
“I’ve been taking your company’s medicine, but I didn’t expect that you made fake medicine. I’m going to sue you. You are so disgusting!”
In the building of Central Television, Li Huawen just finished reading the ratings reports of the show.
Li Huawen immediately took out his mobile phone and checked on Fang Qiu’s Weibo.
As soon as he looked at Weibo, he saw people talking crazily about a topic on the Internet—#Fang Qiu Confronts Siqi Pharmaceutical Company#.
Looking at this topic, Director Li Huawen was shocked.
Now he knew what Fang Qiu tested at the Capital University of Science and Technology was the medicine of Siqi Pharmaceutical Company!
“Is this kid really going to challenge these medicine companies?”
He clicked on Fang Qiu’s Weibo.
Seeing Fang Qiu’s post and photos, Li Huawen was even more astonished.
He didn’t expect that Fang Qiu was so straightforward that he posted the name of the medicine and the company clearly.
He said to himself, “Indeed, this kid is not easy to be dealt with. He looks so kind, but when he deals with something important, he always acts recklessly. He’s not afraid of anything at all!”
In the building of Siqi Pharmaceutical Limited Liability Company which located in the capital, many clerks saw the topic on the Internet immediately. Some of them were even waiting for Fang Qiu’s breaking news. They didn’t expect that Fang Qiu’s breaking news was actually about their company’s medicine.
The supervisor of the company’s network technology department also saw Fang Qiu’s news.
When he first saw it, he was also startled.
He didn’t even dare to think about it.
Then, he immediately called the chairman of the board.
In the presidential suite of a luxury hotel in the capital, Commander Zuo received a call from a subordinate of his company. “Hello?”
“Chairman, bad news.”
A voice on the other end of the phone sounded anxious. “Something serious happened on the Internet.”
“What’s the rush?” Commander Zuo calmly leaned back against the sofa and said while drinking tea, “Slow down. Tell me what happened.”
The subordinate said, “It’s about our medicine. Fang Qiu, the Chinese Medicine doctor who has been particularly popular recently, has revealed on the Internet that there was something wrong with our drugs and that the pesticide residues of the drugs exceeded the standard!”
