Can’t People’s Daily afford good English writers?

Hot off the press, sublimely mangled sentences from a leading Chinese English-language newspaper:

Though there witnessed not a long history of MBA education in China, yet the glory that enveloped MBA has gone discolored within few years. With only a MBA laurel, one cannot obtain a high post or get in high salary any longer. When the training and enrolling advertisements of MBA posted like scabies on the street wire poles and in alleyways of China, criticism and query on the MBA education came along tempestuously.

Tempestuously? Has anyone used that word in the past 100 years? “Posted like scabies?” I don’t even want to go there.
