If you search for "达赖喇嘛"

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=%E8%BE%BE%E8%B...

you get official propoganda from the Chinese government, as described here [1]. Regardless of what Microsoft Bing does, you should suggest to users that they search for "dalai lama" in English instead

no, but you could crowdsource a database of searches filtered by Microsoft Bing.

What would trigger this? Are there specific terms involved, or should it just show up for all queries containing Chinese characters?

There are specific terms involved. One in particular is the example I gave above, [Dalai Lama] gives good results, whereas the same search in Chinese [达赖喇嘛] yields Chinese government propaganda, without the usual wikipedia link etc. Others may or may not exist.
