U.S. MEDIA COWARDICE and BIAS against CHINA

China has just held it’s most major military parade in history!   They pulled it off with utmost precision and order, not only the 12,000 perfectly marching troops but they even made the Beijing skies blue for an unprecedented show of air power.  As if coordinated they even sent warships near Alaska for the first time this week.

So how did this play in America’s two top “mainstream” newspapers?   The New York Times went with a story on page 8, no major pictures of the magnitude and scope of the parade.  The Washington Post put the story on page 11 also refusing major pictures.  Even worse NBC’s flagship TODAY show this morning — no picture, not even a mention, rather pictures of elephants and selfies and trivia.

Oh yes, it should be mentioned that the “independent” American media often takes it cues indirectly from government and owners.  Indeed no U.S. official was there in the Chinese capital for the parade, even though later this month Obama will host President Xi for an official State Visit in the American capital.
