China is not the friend of the world that they are trying to make themselves out to be. Over the past few days, they have kicked out of their country all the American journalists. They claimed that the media was giving a bad image of China to the rest of the world.
The journalist tells the news the way they see it. The Chinese just do not like the fact that they have reported the truth of the coronavirus. It started in China and things have only gotten worse from that point forward.
The U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has stated that China’s decision to kick the journalists out of the country is regrettable. The media needs to be in the country so it can report the accuracy of the state of the coronavirus.
If things are getting better, then the world needs to know. China is too wrapped up in their self-image that they do not want harmful stories being told about the country.
China hated the fact that the stories coming out of their borders were hurting their image. Communism likes to control people. They control everything they say and do. In other cases, they even control what they can watch and listen to.
Communism is a type of government that has never proven to work well for the people. It keeps people dependent on the government for their basic needs. The three agencies that are going to lose the ability to report in China are the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post.
This move by China is only designed to improve its image globally. They want to report the news as they see it. They want to be able to manipulate it to meet up with their agenda.
The globe is going to be deprived of accurate and up-to-date reporting. The Chinese have even invented a story that proves they are going to lie about things. They want people to think that the United States planted the virus to hurt the Chinese people.
It is going to be hard to trust a country that has proven itself to be unreliable in telling the truth. The Chinese leaders want everyone to believe that the United States started it all.
But the facts show that the number of Chinese nationals permitted to work within the United States had to reduce because the Chinese leaders have “long-standing intimidation and harassment of journalists.” They have hounded and harassed them for years. They want to try to intimidate them to report what China wants to be reported.
Mike Pompeo is telling people that China has gone overboard on what their response has been. These are issues that they started and now they are trying to pass off who is to blame for everything.
He went on to point out about China that “The Chinese will tell you they want more information and people to know about the country and yet they continue to take action like the one you see today where they deny the world the capacity to know what’s really going on inside another country.”
He also has pleaded with China is the following statement to reconsider their decision. He stated that “I regret China’s decision today to further foreclose the world’s ability to conduct the free press operations that frankly would be really good for the Chinese people… in these incredibly challenging global times, where more information, more transparency, are what will save lives. This is unfortunate… I hope they’ll reconsider.”
Pompeo’s words are echoed and held by other people. The resistance by the Chinese people to let information flow freely has kept their people in the dark and has kept reliable information from being shared around the world.
All people want to do is help save lives if they can. They are not able to help if all they hear is fake news. The media outlets in question do report fake news stories about President Trump. But when it comes to people and their lives all they want to do is share the facts.
