If you believe China’s propaganda, despite having the virus originate in their country, they somehow managed to fare better than almost any major nation on earth. As of today, the CCP claims only 4,636 deaths, a number so laughable that it should be dismissed completely out of hand. I mean, if you are going to lie, at least make it believable, right?

Despite that, the American media have spent little time questioning China’s obvious lies nor their probable responsibility in leaking the virus from a lab in Wuhan.

I want to discuss that issue, but I also want to talk about something bigger. Let’s use this “news” piece from CNN as an example. It’s written by two “reporters” who ostensibly do hard news on China and are based in Hong Kong (which the Chinese control).

The top-down approach has been touted by officials as a strength of the Chinese system that helped curb the virus — and has again been deployed to accelerate inoculations.

That’s the kind of drivel you’d expect to see from one of those CCP-run Twitter accounts that constantly praise the superiority of the Chinese system. Yet, here we have two CNN-paid reporters who claim to be delivering an unbiased, realistic look at China. What we are actually getting is anything but.

Their article just gets worse from there. At no point do they mention the
