Congress Proposes $500 Million for Negative News Coverage of China​

The effort to counter China’s ‘malign influence’ would fund negative coverage of China’s Belt and Road Initiative—while also beefing up the U.S.’s international lending.
BY LEE HARRIS

FEBRUARY 9, 2022

A tech and manufacturing bill currently moving through Congress allocates $500 million for media outlets to produce journalism for overseas audiences that is critical of China.

Meant to “combat Chinese disinformation,” the bill would direct funding to the U.S. Agency for Global Media, a U.S.-run foreign media service, as well as local outlets and programs to train foreign journalists.

The America COMPETES Act, just passed by the House, is an industrial policy plan for semiconductor production and supply chain resiliency. It sets aside technology investment funds for everything from high-level research to high school computer science.

If a domestic manufacturing bill seems like the wrong setting for spending on foreign news dispatches, sponsors say it’s a natural fit, since the need to stimulate American production is a matter of competition with Beijing. The sales pitch for reviving global competitiveness has been vivid: The country’s use of forced labor in Xinjiang camps, Nancy Pelosi said last week in a speech on the bill, “hurts American workers who have to compete with slave labor.”

Now I know who's been writing the atrocity literature about growth economies, friend or foe, in Asia.

This is the biggest crock of crap I have ever heard of.

Americans don't want to "Compete" with any "Labor" overseas.

They'd rather sit at home, get freebee stimulus checks from the govt. during covid and do nothing.

Then when the checks stop coming, go to DC or the local state capitols and raise hell....

Oh well.

Sounds like we might get a few more Googlepedia Think Tank Analysts handing out negative ratings to Chinese members for pointing out "offensive" facts like naming the manufacturer and vendor of a crashed plane "offending" Americans trying to shift blame without evidence on pilots, while the same usual suspects demand patience (silence) over any mishappens (crashes) until their dubious investigations finalized (pushed under a rug) when the pilots are American.

The already halfway clogged up board is going to be full of gaslighting "China fourious and angry over [petty things only insecure Americans care about]" and "Chinese youth enjoys life. How this is bad for Chinas government [according to Americans]" headlines from 50 "independent" U.S. regime propaganda mouthpieces with the exact same "experts", "analysts", "sources", editors and postal addresses.

There was already a systematic campaign by the west propaganda tool around the world smearing and attacking China the last 10 years or so already. Another 500 millions is not going to make that much of a difference.

Besides, when you make everything negative of China with relentless bombardment of fake news and propaganda, Even an idiot will eventually learn is just a sham and desensitized from the shit show. Maybe except Indians.......
