Western Media and Xinjiang
A Cancer Cell
In China, several hundred newspapers publish the same content, word for word, every day. On TV, the same news show is broadcast by every single provincial station as a simulcast.
All Things Chinese
The news regarding national issues from the state agency, of course, will be the same. Yet Murdoch uses his monopoly power on the media to advocate his own legal case, is this the same thing? Having said that, I do think Chinese media have done a lousy job.
Not the same thing, exactly, but same result. (One point of view gets emphasized.) On issues where the CCP has no stated position, I’ve found that Chinese media often presents all sides. They sometimes do so even where CCP has a position, but give the other side short shrift.
All Things Chinee
Despite the CCP is the key to China’s success and the leading force in the Chinese government, but are you ever able to tell the difference between the two, given not all Chinese government officials are CCP members? Why do you have to call the Chinese government the CCP?
Back to Chinese media and Murdoch, there is of course difference – one for national issues and one for his own private matter.
Do major western media also report the same big news on daily basis?
Media in all countries report more or less the same things: Things the locals consider newsworthy. In the West, if you don’t like the way Murdoch reports something, there are numerous other outlets across the political spectrum, or you can even start your own. Not so in China.
All Things Chinese
China has the biggest and most diverse social media platforms in the world and most people can read news from various sources on their cellphone, rather than relying on a few news outlets controlled by a handful of media tycoons.
“There are numerous other outlets across the political spectrum, or you can even start your own. Not so in China” — Someone who makes such a statement clearly knows nothing about China’s reality but gained his knowledge solely from the Murdoch news, BBC, CNN and so on.
China has more amateur media outlets run by ordinary citizens than probably the world combined. There are also online media that present the most popular news or info from all sources (official or amateur) in real-time, for instance, toutiao.com.
China has many specialty publications for TV, autos, sports etc. China has no media, amateur or otherwise, that oppose CCP policies. Citizen’s attempts to criticize the CCP on the net, 大字报 or elsewhere are shut down quickly and mercilessly.
All Things Chinese
China has plenty of media, amateur or otherwise, that openly oppose Chinese government policies. Do some research on Chinese media & social platforms, don’t makeup stories like your beloved BBC. Read what those “dissident intellectuals” (公知) & media said online, won’t you?
In fact, it is US-based social media that keep silencing the pro-China & pro-Russia voices.
Send me a citation to media in China that openly opposes the CCP. Send me the names of a few dissident intellectuals who openly oppose the CCP who aren’t yet imprisoned. It’s not me or the BBC who’s making up stories about your beloved CCP.
I’ve done my research. Here’s a list of Chinese dissidents and what happened to them. There’s no list of media criticizing the CCP because there aren’t any.
All Things Chinese
Here are some influential Chinese media including xinjingbao and nanfangzhoumo that are not just criticizing but attacking the Chinese government, the PPC and the Chinese nation as a whole, often in synchronized actions with Washington.
There are also a number of so-called “public intellectuals” (公知) (writers, legal professionals, journalists, economists, teachers) with many of them paid by the CIA’s associated NGOs to echo Washington’s anti-China campaigns. It is happening even right now. Go to Weibo to see it.
A Chinese actress, for instance, named Yao Chen once publically condemned her own country and the government when the terrorists from Xinjiang massacred passengers in Kunming train station, and this terrorist supporter is still active on and off the screens so far.
The current Chinese political/social system, although far from perfect, is the most advanced in today’s world. It is not money politics, not lobby group democracy, not a system that divides the nation but a centralized people’s democracy based on the traditional Chinese civilization, Chairman Mao’s ingenious invention, and the decades of practice and reform.
Some Track Records
Before Terrorist Attack on July 5
In May 2007, America’s CNN broadcasted a video clip showing a violent incident that happened on April 4, 2007, in Iraq that is under Americans’ military occupation. In the event, a girl dressed in red was seen to be stoned to death by a group of mobs.
Two years later on July 3, 2009, a man self-identified as M sent this video clip to the members of an Uyghur online network group, in which the Iraqi girl had her nationality changed from Iraqi to Chinese Uyghur. The note added on the clip by M read: My people, the blood debt must be repaid with blood. Since Han people stoned our naked Uyghur girl to death, why should we abide by the law? Let’s get together to show our muscles.
Later it was confirmed by China’s anti-terrorist special force that M is a core member of the World Uyghur Congress. The message was sent by M from Germany, where the headquarters of the WUC is situated.
Two days later, at about 5pm on July 5, a massacre began, 156 innocent people, of which 134 were Han Chinese, were killed, further 1,680 injured with 331 shops burned to the ground and 627 vehicles smashed.
After Terrorist Attached
After the carnage, Wall Street Journal published an article in which Rebiya Kadeer, the head of the World Uyghur Congress, held a photo to prove the Uyghur protestors were sieged by police.
Yet the truth is this is a photo posted on Chinese media days earlier about an incident in Hubei province in southern China.
The Wall Street Journal never apologized.
This is another photo displayed in a rally organized by World Uyghur Congress and its Western supporters claiming how the Chinese authority crackdown ethnic Uyghur. Yet again, it is just a photo of a terrible traffic accident that occurred in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province.
Again, no one apologized for the fake news whatsoever.
In reality, the hands of the local authority and police force in Xinjiang were initially tied up with China’s ethnic policies that grand the minority groups various privileges including in legal matters at the expense of the main body of Chinese people, the Han, who are the chief creators of the Chinese civilization thus the prime targets of the Western crusaders. A case in point is Rebiya Kadeer having 11 children, while at the time Han Chinese were allowed to have one child only. That is why the terrorist attack of 2009 resulted in such a horrific casualty.
A little Uyghur girl lives in Xinjiang with her grandparents and brother. Recently, she was approached by three men holding her father’s photo and self-introduced as her father’s friends. They enticed her to go with them to Australia to see her father.
Days later, a photo in which this little Uyghur girl weeps was published on the front page of CNN’s news network and the three men turned out to be the CNN journalists from the United States.
CNN alleged in the report that this poor little girl was prohibited to leave China to see her father.
When Washington and its allies kill religious extremists in another country, western media call it LIBERATION, and if someone reveals prison abuse & civilian killing, he must be detained for life. When China detains the religious extremists in its own country, western media call it GENOCIDE.
Western Media and Western Intelligence Services
Reuters, BBC, and Bellingcat participated in covert UK Foreign Office-funded programs to “weaken Russia,” leaked docs reveal
Newly leaked documents show Reuters’ and the BBC’s involvement in covert UK FCO programs to effect “attitudinal change” and “weaken the Russian state’s influence,” alongside intel contractors and Bellingcat.
The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) have sponsored Reuters and the BBC to conduct a series of covert programs aimed at promoting regime change inside Russia and undermining its government across Eastern Europe and Central Asia, according to a series of leaked documents.
The leaked materials show the Thomson Reuters Foundation and BBC Media Action participating in a covert information warfare campaign aimed at countering Russia. Working through a shadowy department within the UK FCO known as the Counter Disinformation & Media Development (CDMD), the media organizations operated alongside a collection of intelligence contractors in a secret entity known simply as “the Consortium.”
Through training programs of Russian journalists overseen by Reuters, the British Foreign Office sought to produce an “attitudinal change in the participants,” promoting a “positive impact” on their “perception of the UK.”
They’ve done it to Russia and they’re doing it to China and they will not stop doing it to any nation that they consider standing in the way of their political and financial masters’ goal of achieving global hegemony.
