    Western journalists 'fabricate' news: China media

    Damn skippy. Liberals have been saying this since the 2000 election. Back in the nineties, CNN used to be so great. When they investigated "Iraq-Gate" under Bush Sr.,
    (how the U.S. sold Saddam weapons) they had new updates every hour, not simply repeating the same clips all day. Now all they do is spin away. 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."

    Some people want to be lied to, because they can't face the reality that the government and the media conspire against the common good and the common man.

    Thankfully we have China to keep a watchful eye on any government/media conspiracies against the common good.

    US media does fabricate news, but that's hardly news to Americans. Go just about anywhere in public with a TV screen and you're likely to see Fox News blaring the latest GOP talking point from above like Big Brother, or CNN giving a live demonstration of coverage that would get a journalism student flunked out of school. Chinese media is hardly the one to point fingers, but at least they acknowledge the state rules their coverage - ours pretends to be free when its content is dictated by oligarchs.

    Shouldn't this be down in the humor section? Chinese media accusing others of fabricating news? LOL. That'd be like Cold War Era "Pravda" chastising the US Media.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    We wouldn't need media matter and media watchdogs if the government wasn't lying to us all the time.

    All the same liars in the media are many of the same liars of Iran Contra. The GOP.

    I just checked up there, and I can tell you there are no nukes. However, there are poison gas weapons aplenty.
