In my latest editorial for CGTN, I throw ice-cold water on the idea that Chinese officials are prepared to alter coronavirus tests on any athlete during the upcoming Beijing Olympics. Justifiably, Chinese sports officials shot down the nonsensical idea that coronavirus tests would be or could be manipulated. Huang Chun, deputy director-general of the Beijing … Continue reading CGTN: Claim that China manipulates Olympic athletes’ COVID-19 results a dangerous narrative
In my latest editorial for CGTN, I remind readers to look beyond the numbers promised by President Biden.

My latest editorial for China Focus explores how China and the U.S. are dealing with the delta variant.
