The US appoints 4 more Chinese media organizations as foreign diplomatic missions



Trump blasts China over Hong Kong national security law

David Stilwell, assistant secretary of the State Department for East Asia and Pacific affairs, said Monday that China Central Television, China News Service, People’s Daily, and Global Times must report details of their US staff and what their US real estate ownership is. Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

“These entities are not independent news organizations; they are effectively controlled by the Chinese Communist Party … also known as a propaganda outlet,” Stilwell said. “In addition … our actions will increase transparency in information control, not only between their country’s propaganda outlets but also between legitimate journalists and news meetings in China.”

This is the second time the US has appointed Chinese media outlets as foreign entities, requiring them to comply with rules and regulations that include diplomatic missions.

The appointment came as US-Chinese relations were mired in pain over trade, the future of Hong Kong and the coronavirus pandemic. With elections in more than four months, the prospect of President Donald Trump’s re-election is uncertain and the global economy is falling apart due to a virus, there is encouragement within the White House and among allies of the Republican President to redirect mistakes to China and emphasize the failure to act quickly and transparently to prevent the virus from spreading into a global pandemic.

The announcement about four Chinese media outlets also came just days after the revelation of a new book by John Bolton, former Trump national security adviser, who wrote that Trump has begged the President of China Xi Jinping for help in winning the 2020 election.

“While the Chinese Communist Party has always tightly controlled China’s state news agencies, its control has been tightened in recent years, decades, especially below,” said Xi, Stilwell.

“These people are doing more than propaganda, right, and to understand exactly what we have to know about who they are. It’s about understanding what’s happening in your own country; we are a free nation,” Stilwell added.

Earlier this year, the US appointed five other Chinese outlets as foreign missions and limited the number of Chinese journalists working for the outlets in the US.

China has expelled journalists from The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post.

When asked about the effectiveness of this effort, given China’s retaliation in expelling US journalists the last time the State Department took this action, Stilwell said, “The Chinese government does what it does. You cannot say that they did it specifically because we did it to them. That just an excuse. “

While Stilwell and State Department spokesman Morgan Ortagus stressed the lack of media freedom in China, it is better to compare it with US media, Ortagus will not allow questions about Bolton’s book, which also portrays Trump as an attempt to lick with Xi.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts.
