  Can we trust the Chinese press?  Can we trust most Chinese journalists whose main duty is to cut and paste?  When was the last time you found investigative journalism in China?  Do most Chinese columnists know what the heck are they talking about?

  In effect, if weren't for the Western media, Chinese journalists and readers  wouldn't know what's going on worldwide; they wouldn't know how to make sense of  all-important  foreign political  events  without reading articles written by Western Journalists and columnists.

   Regardless, they would be at a loss to explain what's happening outside China if CNN, CNBC, Asia, and a few channels owned by Murdoch were truly verboten in China.

Fake news are having a harder and harder time getting past the Great Firewall of China, while more and more netizens are getting the news censored by MSM from other countries.  Trump will dispute what the MSM say about themselves being the purveyors of truth.  More than once, he has called them out as "Fake News", even as POTUS, when he has the real facts under his thumb.

The answer is -- NO, You Cannot Trust Western Mainstream News.

Whether you want to trust Chinese News is a different matter altogether.

Can we trust the Murdoch media? THAT is the question.

The Harvard-Harris Poll conducted between May 17 and 20, 2017, found that 65% believe there is a lot of fake news in the Mainstream Media, and that they cannot tell what to believe in 84% of online news.  If most Americans do not believe their own media, it would be silly to say that most Chinese ought to.  In fact, most Americans would agree with most Chinese that Western media cannot be trusted!
