CNN Doubles Down on Its Decision to Publish Chinese State Propaganda as "News"

Hearings. Now.

CNN this week published a report copying almost word-for-word a Chinese Communist Party press release praising the People's Liberation Army Navy's efforts to contain the coronavirus and degrading the U.S. Navy's failures to do likewise.

Almost as bad as CNN's promotion of Chinese propaganda is the network's defense of its decision to run state-sponsored agitprop.

The story was a "single update from our international siteís 24-7 Live Story," a CNN spokesman told the Daily Caller. He added, "[The story] explicitly states the sourcing as a PLA story and identifies the Global Times as 'a state-run tabloid.' That transparency is key as a global news source serving a global audience."

...

Everything about the Peopleís Liberation Army "report" cited by CNN screams that it is government propaganda, yet it ended up on CNN's website anyway.

How?

The original CNN story, bylined to an "international homepage editor" based at CNNís Hong Kong bureau, was based entirely on a "news report" that appeared first on a Chinese government website. It is not the sort of place where an "international homepage editor" for a free press would normally trawl for genuine news items, unless the point was to contrast.

The author then made the judgment call that the Chinese government "report" was worthy of serious attention and news coverage, a decision that presumably required the backing of an editor. The author then wrote an article based entirely on a "report" that says the Peopleís Liberation Army believes the Peopleís Liberation Army is doing a great job. The CNN article was then (presumably) edited, double-checked by CNN web producers, and then published online. Considering the number of CNN employees who were likely involved in bringing the story to life, it is remarkable that no one flagged it for propaganda or even questioned the news value of a report that states simply that China believes China has handled the pandemic wonderfully.

Anyone else remember when collusion with a hostile foreign communist regime to influence an election was considered criminal?

Katy Tur has had a daily show since January of 2017, roughly 3 years. That's essentially 8 million deaths since she's been on the air. More than Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot. Katy Tur belongs next to history's greatest monsters.

115 A lot of the Russia hysteria was to deflect from how much of the US political and media classes were fully owned subsidiaries of China, Inc. The decision by Kissinger/Nixon to recognize the communist hell as the legitimate government of China, and the subsequent admission of the PRC into the WTO, were extreme gambles. And we lost.

Not sure that is quite right as to his Constitutional powers, but its is kind of what happens in the reality of it. He requests quorum on any matter of emergency, Congress (both houses) are compelled to show such, the absence of which (and they have shown no interest in convening) releases him to take action as if Congress is unable to take up the Nation's business, or simply put, they are adjourned - its meant to suggest someone is still in charge should Congress flee or otherwise be unavailable to carry on in the event of an emergency.

At least, that's my reading of the article...

It's a push-pull thing he does. Just because he is complimenting a world leader doesn't mean he loves them, it's just a negotiating tactic (i.e. you don't get as much from a leader you've just publicly condemned). He was playing hardball with Xi *before* they went and broke the world with a pandemic, then made it worse by scooping up all the PPE while lying about it, etc.. I have no doubt he will be taking action against them -- he's just not going to announce it right now.

That's giving them way too much credit. Ever since Rathergate, I've become convinced that editor positions in national news organizations are just makework jobs. Which irritates me, since I'm a natural-born editor and worked briefly at a local newspaper. (If I spelled a HS coach's name wrong, all hell would break loose.)

I am certain that the Chinese navy is going to get hit as hard as any by coronavirus. In fact, it's probably already happened and they're keeping it a secret.

Their shipboard disease control is probably as lax as their damage control reportedly is. Or their high-level bio-containment lab controls.
