China’s state-run media has been working 24/7 to convince its population (and the rest of the world) that its initial reaction to the coronavirus was without fault and that in fact, the virus is likely an attack against it by the United States.
What should be even more concerning to Americans is how many media / Hollywood elites / far-left Democrats appear to be voicing very similar anti-U.S.A. sentiments as well. It’s as if they are reading directly from scripts delivered to them by the Chinese government.
Impossible you say? Well, not when you take into account China is spending approximately a half-TRILLION dollars every year on advertising/donations/and Hollywood investments.
That’s the dirty little secret nobody at CNN, the New York Times, etc., wants you to know about.
Read on to learn more…
Check out how much the Chinese communist regime is spending on digital media advertising alone as reported by statistic.com:
“Digital ad spend in China was projected to reach around 118.8 billion U.S. dollars in 2023. It would very likely maintain an over 70 percent share of the total media ad revenue in the coming few years.”
Did you catch that last part? China accounts for over 70% of total digital ad spending. In short, there are companies within the U.S. who are almost entirely dependent upon Chinese dollars if they are to remain in existence. If you don’t think that gives the Chinese an enormous amount of influence on messaging here in the U.S. you are choosing to be willfully ignorant. This influence permeates CNN, MSNBC, Hollywood, and on and on.
Now, read how the Chinese government is spinning the coronavirus from this recent Fox News report:
“If you listened to Chinese state-run media, you’d think President Trump went to China and released vials of COVID-19 on groups of unsuspecting men, women and children.
Beijing has been bending over backward trying to convince the world that the United States is the real culprit behind the quickly spreading virus that’s already claimed more than 4,600 lives across the globe.
It’s a high-stakes strategy for the Asian nation fighting to keep its superpower status amid a national lockdown and palpable anger over claims that Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the coronavirus, at first covered it up, triggering a worldwide health and economic crisis.”
Remember how President Trump was attacked by the far-left when he quickly initiated a China travel ban? Some Democrats and media figures went so far as to call the action racist. Those attacks sounded like they came directly from the Chinese government.
Considering how much China spends to manipulate the U.S. news cycle, is it so far-fetched to think it’s quite possible they in fact did just that?
Do you know who the #2 source of advertising revenue is for social media giant, Facebook?
The communist regime now spends $5 billion annually on Facebook advertising alone.
Here is more from the Fox News report:
“…Also peculiar is that Beijing — which is normally quick to censor news — has refused to step in as a wave of anti-American conspiracy theories flood the internet. Among the rumors is that the U.S. created the coronavirus to make China look bad as well as one that accuses the government of covering up thousands of deaths by classifying them as the regular flu.
“It’s more than just some disinformation or an official narrative,” Xiao Qiang, an adjunct professor at the University of California at Berkeley’s Schools of Information, told The Washington Post. “It’s an orchestrated, all-out campaign by the Chinese government through every channel at a level you rarely see. It’s a counteroffensive.”
Disinformation intended to place blame America as well as spread international panic that is now pummeling U.S. financial markets.
And all mere months away from the November 2020 elections.
