Don't look at the truth hidden behind my back, look at this more palatable version of history/reality sanitized and censored for your viewing pleasure. Or, in Fox News case, video from another event all together, file footage from wherever we choose to pull it from.

    "BEIJING (AFP) - An official Chinese newspaper has accused foreign journalists in the country of fabricating news in the latest sign of official nerves over an online campaign for anti-government rallies."

    While I understand where the Chinese government is coming from (in a sense), I don't really think that they should be talking about who "fabricates" stories, seeing as how they have a state-run media (not much unlike the US).

    Thanks.

    My take of the article: Coming from the Christian Science Monitor, a paper that NEVER criticizes Israel, it may be accurate but i disagree with their bias against China.
    Google and Yahoo, American companies, were both caught turning in Chinese dissidents who did nothing except write about their political beliefs. So, America is guilty of many of the same crimes it accuses China of. Namely unlawful detention and torture. It is worth noting in a thread about press freedom, that the Christian Science Monitor went bankrupt years ago and was purchased by people connected to US govmnnt agencies.It is a US govmnt outlet like Voice of America or Radio Free Europe.

    On to the topic at hand. It's fairly obvious that MSM is a joke, on both sides. I find all the bickering about media bias fairly ridiculous as none seem to really deliver a solid, consistent news stream. News today comes in bites and it's obvious that this is how the majority of our country gets the news. Why read an article in the Times when you can just have a widget that will give the cliff notes in 5 words? I agree it's quite humorous that China is the country making this accusation, but will agree with others and say it makes it no less true.

    Most Americans read Drudge first, or Huffington. Two seriously flawed tabloid sites. Why? Because the lamestream media don't do their jobs and mimick either Fox or TMZ.
    The lead story on 2 of the 3 local news outlets yesterday at 5 o'clock was Charlie Sheen. So we have us a serious problem with news censorship today in the US.

    This is the incident that caused China to release the comments they made about Western press, quoted in my first thread starting post. China claims the harrassment was a fabrication and the West, always ready to antagonize its top compitetor/ rival
    always harps on "the commies" for Americas own worst offenses. Hence, another scapegoat for the Right Wing.

    What was Iraq and the war on terror, but a huge human rights abuses and death squads? What is the US policy on detention and torture? Why does the US media routine censor these stories in favor of Lindsay Lohan?

    Kane, the Christian Science Monitor is one of the best papers out there. I find it interesting that you find bias in that highly-respected paper, all the while giving the Chinese press a pass. Really?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
