“Foreign media reports that police tortured a detained lawyer is FAKE NEWS, fabricated to tarnish China’s image,” People’s Daily tweeted on March 3. The wording of the tweet, written to mimic the style of U.S. President Donald Trump, struck a nerve with some readers.

        In February, Trump called the U.S. media “the enemy of the American people.” His language suggests that major U.S. media outlets, including The New York Times and CNN, are hostile and subversive organizations. If the leader of the world’s leading democratic government can’t trust the Western media, why should the rest of the world?

The way to use western media is to read a variety of media from different countries and with different known political biases (rightist vs. leftist). Never simply accept one medium as being "true". Compare their accounts and use your judgement. There is a variety of opinion in the western media (which is an indication of relative freedom of opinion). There are real differences of opinion even between capitalists. Add some socialist media too. It takes time and effort to interpret media. Most people don't do this properly.

It would be naive to "trust" ANY medium (western or otherwise) without careful comparisons!
Without World Government we are DOOMED.
