What I don't agree with the Western media is that the bad news or sensational stories are more likely to be published while news is hardly worth their attention. Yet, China is complicated for journalists. As any society going through such fast transformation, there are always issues you can focus on. According to you, do Western media give a fair portrayal of China?

Before you make any such sweeping allegations you need to familiarise yourself with the West's media. But can you? Do you speak enough languages to follow their media? I don't think so.

China has enough work cut out for itself to improve; Its media don't inform they only foist the Party's opinion upon readers and viewers. there is no healthy debate between readers and journalists. The journalists usually are clueless and write on assignment without posing probing questions. in fact, many news bits look like paid-for infomercials. So what does China know about decent journalism?

There is no such thing as the western media. There are countries, such as US where the news are highly political motivated and then countries that show real news such as Finland and other Nordic countries. Just check the press freedom index.

It is symptomatic that you write WESTERN MEDIA and not MEDIAS, as if western was a block, like there is a PCC who decide what peoples must think. Useless to talk with you about medias unless you consider WESTERN as a ONE. Sorry, but western is not ONE thing , even if this thing is what PCC want you to believe . Everytday in any western country, you can read oppposite, contradictory and different approach in the news. when you write westerners as CD use to do, it's exaclty as stupid as if a westerner write JAPANESE CHINESE AND INDONESIAN are the same. You would find it stupid and you would be right. This stupid generalization logic from propaganda is one of the reason why CD can never became a serious media. Usualy, the few westerners who read it are lol with these shts..

Who's this chap on CCTV's English channel?  From Breitbart News?  From CNN? Is CNN meshuga? Why would CNN hire an ignoramus like him? Little wonder CNN's TV ratings are plumbing the depths. Can't CNN hire someone who doesn't talk like a droid like him?

  Wait, this Chinese TV reporter is also a munter. CCTV can't find bonny totty to replace her? It could hire Qian Chen, a reporter working at CNBC in Singapore.
