Oh, I see Vivoix. The US gets bad press because it is bad, but China gets bad press because it is good, but people just say it is bad.|
I asked these questions becasue it is obvious to me that the Chinese press paints China to be far better than what it really is - due to heavy censorship. Chinese people are taught that their nation is not responsible for any wars or problems in the world, which is simply a lie. The Western press is under no such restrictions, and tells both good and bad about China. And that is the way it should be. If you don't like finding out about China's dark side, tune into Xinhua, and you will get the happy news about China that you long to see.
Quote: "Why are there far more negative stories about "America" in "The Wetern Press" than there are about China?"
- Can you read Chinese newspaper or read Chinese blogs? Then you'll know a mountainful of problems voiced by Chinese about China and then cling on with dreamy & starry eyes on the rounder moon outside China.
Why more negative stories about America? That's facts, not stories. How would you expect China to get the SAME amount of bad press as America to judge for fairness in western press? Did China invade Iraq? Did Chinese government lie to the world to invade Iraq and kill so many civilians in ME? Did Chinese soldiers humiliate the POW in the same ways as the UK & US soldiers? Did China station military bases in over 100 countries in the world? Did China force US to manipulate dollar? Did China plan a missile base in Europe? You must read a bit more and see some reality on ground, not the letters to letters 'CHINA & AMERICA' on the paper.
US & EU tend to create "threats' about China based on FEAR factor. They fear this or fear that, suspect this or that, then off it goes with an endless list of threats, month after month, a new story.
Western press generally refers to UK, US, EU, Scandinavia, Canada, Australia & New Zealand. They generally print facts about US, as for China, they print copies from US & UK about China, therefore most views on China are more or less imposed by the anglos, mainly sourced from UK, US & other anglophone countries which then transmit to EU & Scandinavia.
Therefore one should trace the culprit of bias to the anglo countries led by US & UK.
