When China’s Communist Party appealed to run anti-American propaganda, outlets such as the Washington Post and New York Times got their thirty pieces of silver to backstab our nation.
Recent reports have surfaced that the Chinese government invested upwards of $6.6 billion into an English-language news company called China Daily that floods the streets with pro-communist narratives. The publication was forced to register as a foreign lobbyist wing — not a newspaper — as far back as 1983 under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. Despite this obvious conflict with American values and truth, mainstream media outlets repeatedly published a pro-China supplement called China Watch and distributed it Americans across the country.
“Are they so desperate for cash, when they are owned by one of the richest men in human history, that they have to publish propaganda for communist China?” Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor reportedly said. “We’ve always called it Red China, but the Washington Post wants to make sure it’s always read.”
China Daily, which is directly owned and operated by the Chinese Communist Party Publicity Department, manipulated regulations by claiming the packages are “advertising.” The China Watch supplement confused readers enough to pass as news that experts have gone on the record denouncing it.
“Through its marketing arm, China Watch, the paper began distributing English-language content directly as advertising inserts in the Wall Street Journal, the Des Moines Register, and the Washington Post, among other leading US newspapers,” the Hoover Institution of public policy reportedly states. “Often, it’s hard to tell that China Watch’s material is an ad, as was the case highlighted by President Donald Trump with an advertising insert in the Sunday Des Moines Register — an insert that the president suggested was aimed at undermining political support both for the president and the Republican party.”
If hard-working American families are wondering about what the price of establishment media loyalty was, it was far more than the 30 pieces of silver Judas took. The Washington Post reportedly pocketed $6 million. Other outlets, including the New York Times, Des Moines Register, and Wall Street Journal, among others, divvied up the remainder of the $11 million communist propaganda payoff during the run-up to the 2016 elections.
Experts estimate that fake news media outlets receive approximately $250,000 on average to promote communism and undermine American values. In response, GOP senators urged the U.S. Department of Justice to end the communist regime’s ability to spread false information.
“If there’s one lesson from the Cold War, it’s that our victory was only possible because we convinced the world that democracy was superior to communist authoritarianism. Well, it looks like we have to fight that battle again — this time against a far wealthier and equally determined adversary,” a letter to U.S. Attorney William Barr reportedly states. “The federal government must use every weapon in its arsenal to ensure the triumph of our values — the consequences of failure are unspeakable.”
China Daily has operated with impunity and the vast influx of cash fake news media outlets receive serves as an obvious reason why many sided with Beijing as Pres. Trump waged a successful tariff war against the communist regime. Not only have these outlets helped shift “foreign perceptions of the Chinese Communist Party,” with the 8-page China Watch insert, they have also routinely inserted pro-China propaganda content disguised as fact-based news articles.
The Washington Post, for example, reportedly ran a communist-written piece under the headline “Education Flaws Linked to Hong Kong Unrest.” The piece tries to create a bias against the pro-Democracy patriots protesting the authoritarian takeover.
“Such articles serve as a cover for China’s atrocities, including its crimes against humanity in the Xinjiang region and its support for the crackdown in Hong Kong,” the letter to the DOJ reportedly states.
