Of course not, it encourages us to believe the opposite
Unless the news presented with a neutral view, I'd tend to believe the opposite of their criticisms on China. Having lived long enough in Europe, I find it pretty tiring to get any truth for their reports on China, just like what Gerchin said, to find some truth or their motives behind, one has to read almost all of them.|
What is more depressing, I notice many news on China presented in France and Germany sourced from translated versions from UK & US press. It 's worse to read the English section presented by these Europeans press such as Le Monde or Spigel, they extracted newspieces from New York Times, Telegraph, Washington Posts etc. for those European readers who're learning English or those English-speaking readers.
I agree with Gerchin that some journalists pay to get a staged coverage when there is nothing to report about, they'll exercise their imagination to produce such press liberty.
News below ( sorry, only in chinese text) sourced from JingHua(BeijingTimes), but reported in Singapore press
http://www.zaobao.com.sg/special ... /others060801h.html
shows that in Beijing, a Caucasian man dressed in Chinese millitary-style green suits, threw out 34 coins on the floor , coerced the public and an old Chinese man nearby who was collecting empty bottles to pick up those coins, then his two Caucasian accomplices started video filming at 5 m away. His acts angered the public and nearly received some punches from the furious public who in turn demanded them to return and pick up those coins. They did so and run away amid the furor.
One of the impressions this act gave to the writer was these white guys were trying to humiliate some chinese as poor beggars.
Unfortunately they weren't caught to expose their status, they could very well be those western crook journalists or bloggers who CREATE news for China.
