In my latest editorial for CGTN, I explore why one U.S. senator needs to rethink his let's-sanction-China strategy. Returning to Rubio, we must acknowledge that in attempting to validate his bona fides as an anti-Communist, he is ignoring reality. Any sanctions the U.S. would issue against China would be met with a response by the … Continue reading CGTN: U.S. senator swings, misses in criticism of China
In my latest editorial for CGTN, I explore the culture of fear about China that has been created in the U.S. ...the American public is not being served by the biased assessment of China's history, potential and ambitions coming from the elite media and so-called experts.

In my inaugural editorial for Beijing Review, I take a look at recently concluded Two Sessions gathering in China and what it might mean for the country and the world.

According to the Washington Post, the "Strategy for Countering … Continue reading CGTN: “China Initiative” is dead, but America’s distrust of China is not
In my latest editorial for CGTN, I ask why the West refuses to congratulate China for delivering a safe and enjoyable Olympics. There is only one conclusion we can draw about these Games: They were a phenomenal success. International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach admitted the obvious during the closing ceremony on February 20, when … Continue reading CGTN: Why will the West not congratulate China on Olympics?
In my latest editorial for CGTN, I take a look at a new U.S. government report critical of China. Admire or criticize the domestic and international economic policies pursued by China all you want, but you must admit they have led to a stronger nation with millions of people raised out of poverty.

In my latest editorial for CGTN, I lament that multiple Western news media held tightly to the anti-China narrative as they reported on the 2022 Olympics opening ceremonies from Beijing.
