China Focus: Dangerous rhetoric, reporting doom U.S. understanding of China

In my latest editorial for China Focus, I examine how consistently negative political rhetoric and a compliant media harm America’s understanding of China.

Whether it is reporting about China’s military growth, economic development, human rights record or something else, these mainstream news media stories repeatedly fabricate the intentions of the Chinese government; the picture that is painted is Beijing eager to see their country become a bully in the region and to topple the U.S. as the world’s global economic power. One must conclude that the purpose of such reporting is to deliberately keep much of the American public misinformed about China and to curry favor with leading U.S. politicians.
