    But the harassment was NOT a fabrication of the Western media. I have seen VIDEO footage of the harassment, some of it physical in nature.

    The point was, the US news is heavily censored also.

    Their point has no merit. In China, the news is hevily censored by the government and the party, and there are no alternative news sources. In that, the GOVERNMENT/PARTY makes the determination what is altered and censored. In the United States, the news organizations make those decisions and there are FAR MORE OPTIONS available. If you knew anything about how the press in China operates, you would then be aware of the amount of absolute shame you should now feel, and how you have utterly NO credibility on this. BTW, can you READ the Chinese language (either Simplified or Traditional characters)? If you can't. you are not really in much of a position to comment on the pervasiveness and nature of the fabrication in the Chinese news media.

    I wouldn't exactly cal you an objective source. That news is completely fabricated for propaganda purposes sounds like a stretch to me unless its been evidenced in the thread and I missed it.

    I am not an objective source? And you rely more on the party-state control of a dictatorship as being more objective? You can choose to believe it or not, your choice. However, it doesn't change the fact that China's media regularly does this in Chinese. I have already cited three well known instances to those who can actually READ Chinese and communicte in the language. I was even there for one of them. I saw and experienced it first hand.

    You can deny that the Chinese government LIED about the U.S. apology in 1999, but it doesn't change the fact that it happened.

    You can deny the fact that the Chinese government misreperesented the situation in Egypt, but it doesn't change the fact that it happened.

    You can deny the fact that the Chinese government altered the details of the Chinese downing of the U.S. recon plane, but it doesn't change the fact that it happened.

    Are you saying it hasn't been reported in the Western media??? Because if you are, you are definately 100% WRONG!!! And that is the difference. It HAS been reported, much to the embarassment of the governments in London and Washington. Were it in China, the government would be sure to block with all of the authority and power of a one-party dictatorial regime any such news from being published in the official publishing organs of the county. That is the point you and the Chi-Com lovers seem to miss. In the West, news outlets are free to make their own editorial decisions. In China, the Party-State makes the editorial decisions.

Or, in Fox News case, video from another event all together, file footage from wherever we choose to pull it from.

    Funny, I was just watching the domestic US news now in english and some dude saw the exact same thing and interpreted it as a lie. What a dilemma. I didnt realize you were some sort of megacomputer man that is free of bias and can break down the media and government with a mere snap of his fingers.

    Their point has no merit. In China, the news is hevily censored by the government and the party, and there are no alternative news sources. In that, the GOVERNMENT/PARTY makes the determination what is altered and censored. In the United States, the news organizations make those decisions and there are FAR MORE OPTIONS available.
    Last I checked almost all news on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is given to the US media by the pentagon. Really objective. Lots of options... or one really.

    I'm sure it's been mentioned elsewhere but I'd just really like to point out the irony of China's state media accusing someone else of fabrication.
