    What the heck are you talking about?

    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.
    1. Is it frabricated?
    2. That doesn't mean that foreign journalists aren't inside both Iraq and Afghanistan reporting independently of the Pentagon. In the case of Iraq, there are MANY foreign journalists in the country reporting many things that are NOT dished out by the Pentagon.

    The chemical weapons (mostly mustard gas) have always been there and Saddam had used them during the Iran-Iraq War. Many states possess chem weapons. WMD, as the Bush administration used the term, meant nuclear material. A state possessing mustard gas is not really a sound rationale for going to war. We found no nuclear material in Iraq, the little that Saddam had had was blown away during Desert fox in 1998.

I saw nothing about Wisconsin, nothing about Rep. King dusting off the rack in the House, nothing about Iraq, and nothing about Afghanistan."

    You have a point??? Are they manufacturing any news??? Didn't think so... You can always change the channel and watch another news outlet. In China, you don't have that option. There is the national government news channel, the provincial government news channel, in some cities, you have a municipal government news channel, and you have the party news channel... and I presume you know who controls all of those news channels... and who censors them and creates the news produced on those channels...

    Read it, then react ...


    "I was watching "Family Guy" the other day on the local Boston Fox affiliate when they interrupted the broadcast for the following news bulletin. I quote: "Charlie Sheen may joke about them, but witches and warlocks in Salem say it's no laughing matter. See why tonight on Fox News."

    "The "mainstream" news media is so mouth-frothingly desperate to gin up a distraction - any distraction - to avoid reporting real news that the entire industry has latched on to the downward spiral of a half-assed actor like it is the end of the world. Charlie Sheen is gutting his life for all to see, the ultimate bread and circus, and the "news" is all too happy to follow the plunging arc of his career for the same reason they show car chases and house "

    Again, your point? Are they fabricating anything? I actually found it amusing that when I checked on a Japanese paper's side a couple of hours ago to read info about the earthquake, the story beneath the earthquake was also Charlie Sheen...

    Look, the point of the OP was that Western journalists are making up information and stories about China. Your posts have absolutely no relevance whatsoever...

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."

    Well I know our journalists are really the most trustworthy of folk out there; but they're a hell of a lot better than the Chinese government. Don't tell me you actually believe something the Chinese government has said.

    All news has an angle... China's news has it's CPC angle... with it's own considerations of power and security. Our own media has it's limitations rooted in other reasons. I watch Chinese news on occasion and don't find anything particularly outrageous about it. That news is somehow completely manufactured is a little too far from the truth, though.
