TV films man busy with game on the job

AN employee of the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau has been suspended after being caught on a TV news camera playing an online game.

The video was posted on the Internet, going viral and embarrassing the bureau.

The employee, surnamed Shi, worked as a media coordinator. He was filmed playing "Killers of the Three Kingdoms" in the forecast center when a Shanghai TV news crew was interviewing a chief officer of the service last Friday.

The shot with the employee playing the game was posted on the Internet and became a hot topic on Weibo. Though the interview was done during the noon break, the employee was still suspended.

"It was in the workplace and the influence was magnified by television and the Internet," said a colleague of the suspended employee.
