Nowadays, the culture of disingenuity of the western media is so rampant, many western journalists even don't bother to sweat the details when churning out misleading messages.

Cases in point:

A report by BBC on petitions in China shows a cell phone screen grab of text messages exchanged between a disgruntled villager and his or her petition facilitator as proof of China's allegedly abysmal judiciary situations. Interestingly, all the messages displayed in the pictures are in flawless English,  and everybody could clearly see this is a slapdash and tacky attempt at fabricating faux facts.

Another report by a major US media outlet on social unrest in China used a picture showing soldiers and protesters in clashes on the street, and any informed reader would immediately find that neither the looks and uniforms of the soldiers are Chinese at all. And later the pictures were confirmed to be taken in a South Asian country where confrontations between people and the government are an everyday occurrence.

The list goes on and on.

(Everybody should still remember that the US-led NATO invasion of Iraq was waged on a lie about MDW, which the western media touted to the public with fanfare. )

No wonder the public in either the west or elsewhere has largely been disillusioned with their media, which is nothing more than the mouthpiece of the crooked politicos and interest groups.
Believe it or not, it's true.

So you think the "black prisons" that Chinese provinces maintain or maintained in Beijing to kidnap their own petitioners who take their cases to the central government's petition office are branches of Disneyland?

There are hundreds of people incarcerated illegally in such "prisons".

Western media solely relies on hearsay and grapevines for their reporting, when it comes to China topics. They put together some garbage before going out to look for some evidence, and if they can't find any, then they simply invent it, pretty much the same way you rant and rave here.
Believe it or not, it's true.
