China Blames America for China Kicking Out American Newspaper Journalists

China Blames America for China Kicking Out American Newspaper Journalists

China threatens to kick out more journalists as part of its coverup campaign of the facts that WUHAN coronavirus began in China and was covered up by China until its spread could not be halted.

The Communist Chinese government expelled journalists from The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and The Washington Post on Tuesday to tighten its grip on the coronavirus story.

The Communists blamed the U.S. for the decision while threatening to throw out more journalists.

The journalists from the media outlets have ten days to turn in their credentials:

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Wednesday it was demanding all U.S. nationals working for The Wall Street Journal, the New York Times and the Washington Post whose credentials expire by the end of the year turn those credentials in within 10 days.

The measure would affect most of the U.S. journalists working at those newspapers in China, which issues press credentials for up to 12 months and has recently limited them to six and, in some cases, as little as one month.

The affected reporters won’t be allowed to report anywhere in China, including the semiautonomous territories of Hong Kong and Macau, the statement said.

It also ordered the three newspapers and two other media outlets—Voice of America and Time magazine—to submit information about staff, finances, operations and real estate in China.

Of course, China blamed America because “the Trump administration announced a personnel cap on four state-run Chinese media outlets—Xinhua News Agency, China Radio International, China Global Television Network and China Daily—forcing them to reduce their Chinese employees in the U.S. to 100 in total, from 160.”

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo denied it’s the same thing:

“This isn’t apples to apples,” Mr. Pompeo told reporters at the State Department. “You all know the press freedoms you have…We know that that kind of freedom doesn’t exist inside of China.”

He said the individuals affected by the U.S. policy decision are employed not by independent media organizations, but by “Chinese propaganda outlets.” He said he hoped Beijing would reconsider its decision.

Although Chinese officials claim to want others to better understand events inside China, Mr. Pompeo said, Beijing works to “deny the world the capacity to know what’s really going on” there.

He’s not wrong.

The Communist Chinese government double-downed on its blame on Wednesday. From Fox News:

On Wednesday, China defended its decision to kick out U.S. reporters, saying it had been “compelled” to respond to “unreasonable oppression” of Chinese journalists working in the United States.

“We urge the U.S. to take off its ideological prejudice, abandon Cold War mentality,” China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said during a press conference. “China is not one to start trouble, but it will not blink if trouble comes. We urge the U.S. side to immediately stop suppressing Chinese media, otherwise, the U.S. side will lose even more.”

The coronavirus began in China, which is why we call it the Wuhan coronavirus. As news came out about how China suppressed information about it, President Donald Trump amped up his criticism of the Communist government.

Can you blame him? No.

China started a propaganda campaign to fix its image around the world. Funny thing is they think the majority of people will accept it. Unfortunately, I still see people say it’s racist to call it the Wuhan coronavirus or Chinese coronavirus.

The New York Times called out the Communist government’s efforts to suppress information about the virus:

Under Mr. Xi, the news media has come under an increasingly tight grip and foreign reporters who displease the authorities have been punished with visa denials. In recent weeks, as the coronavirus spread through China, the government has cracked down on domestic and foreign reporting, muzzling medical professionals and censoring and removing reports and commentaries online that have challenged the official narrative.

    Orange man bad. Yellow man has media and politicians in his/her/their pocket. There is no room for liberal license. The colors should be politically congruent. It’s progressive to inculcate and spread diversity.

    I’m waiting for some South Park style Alchemy.

Leftists always lie and accuse their enemies of what they themselves do.

But this smells more like a McGuffin to me. No journalists = no prying eyes and ears to report on just how horrendous the Chinese death toll truly is…

It’s apparent the American “news” media gets its marching orders from the Communist China.

They’re paid well for it. They should be hanged, but in the meantime, they’re raking it in.

It all started with bill clinton selling America’s secrets to to the Chi Comms:

How am I supposed to feel about China kicking out propagandists we should kick out?

    You beat me to it. nyt and wapo are fellow travelers of the chicoms. Probably a stunt so those rags can claim they do real journalism which got them kicked out. So fake.

It’s truly ironic that Communist China would kick out the journalists that are very sympathetic to, and apologists for, communism. They carry water for the communist cause whenever possible and put the best face on communism for their U.S. readers each day. If President Xi had, instead, asked them for a bit of help, my guess is that the NYT and WaPo journalists would have helped Xi spin the story to blame Trump. Xi is not getting very good advice from his people!

    “sympathetic to, and apologists for, communism…”

    My ass! – They’re PAID!

    Where else are these college retard rats going to get jobs that pay more than minimum wage except selling out our country on half of their Chi-Comm bribers. Where??

Everyone in America should call this China’s Wuhanvirus 2019.

Reason one, it has been common to names these things for their point of origin.

Second reason is that China doesn’t like it, and that is a very good reason to set their tails straight.

Perhaps we should stop funding WHO.

Might be off topic but didn’t China just have to kill off their pigs because of some kind of epidemic in that community?

The Atlantic magazine is taking dictation from China and from the Orangemanbad crowd.

Meantime out in the heartland where people have no use for The Atlantic (well they might if it wasn’t printed on slick paper) my not so liberal friends are frothing at the mouth saying that those Chinese bozos (not the word they used) will be made to pay.

Do y’all realize it was just last Wednesday 3/11 that the OKC Thunder were supposed to play the Utah Jazz. The Covid test came back positive and the NBA went from “we’ll play without fans in the seats” to “shut ‘er down”.

And then it all cascaded from there. Lots of things are in a 15 day holding pattern. Cases went from 1,301 to 9,257 and deaths from 38 to 150.

Lyme Disease
West Nile Virus
Ebola
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
Zika Virus
Guinea Worm
Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
Marberg Virus Disease
Lassa Fever

All named after the regions where they originated. And none considered “racist” in any manner. But call the latest virus from China the “Wuhan coronavirus” or the “Chinese corona virus” and you’re attacked viciously from the left. Great Maker, I’m just so fucking tired of the liberal snowflakes and their communist partners in crime.

The scumbags of the left dutifully raise the threat of martial law in the United States. This, from lunatic CA governor newsom:

“In readying the National Guard for action, Newsom’s office emphasized that it’s for duties routinely performed during natural disasters and other emergencies. But Newsom grimly added that “we have the ability to do martial law … if we feel the necessity.””

EVERTYHING we worried about with the fascist left’s noxious ambitions in this country are coming true.
