Do you live in the West, northwest?
Have you seen the Western newspapers today or yesterday?
Do you have an open mind or do you always believe your government and its press?

1) It is not MY media - why did you say it is MY media?
2) You made a statement about the "headlines" - I therefore asked what you have read.

Try having an open mind .... If you don't believe or like the Western press, why should your local press be any better? Why trust any media?

Yeah, I guess you also don't know how "exiled government" and the blogs work. Where's their allowance came from? Any clue from your media?  


Western media actually is reprinting the official reports from Beijing.

In addition to the mainland story, we also get the other version, the truth !

Since we know that blogs, youtube, foreign TV and other sources are presently being blocked in China, have you stopped to consider why they are afraid of other information sources ?

Yeah, just that use the "unconfirmed report" as headlines, a show of bias.

What kind of truth do you have from "unconfirmed report"?

Same as you believe in rumors, lies and "many say"?

I live in Beijing, China.
I access Guardian, Yahoo and CNN freely almost everyday.
I have enough critical mind not to believe everything I see in the first time.

1) It is not MY media - why did you say it is MY media?
2) You made a statement about the "headlines" - I therefore asked what you have read.


1. You defend western media, you're not?
2. I read how Yahoo use AP resources, using a statement from exiled government as  headlines.

Simply because they(western media) are biased against Chinese.

Where have I defended the media of any country? As a Chinese born overseas I have grown up with an open mind.

Your use of "exiled government" shows that you do not have an open mind - you support one side. I think we do not have the full story from either side.

I read all sides - I await the full truth with interest.

That is what you believe - because you have a one-sided view.

You are a Chinese born overseas? Then tell me what's your stance. How you become "open mind"?

Your use of "exiled government" shows that you do not have an open mind - you support one side. I think we do not have the full story from either side.


I of course support Chinese government. How could you support bith sides?

I read all sides - I await the full truth with interest.


Yes, and we can't find the truth from the western media reporting about Tibet.

That is what you believe - because you have a one-sided view.


I use examples to support my statements. Now it's your turn, support yours.

My stance is: I read all sides - I await the full truth with interest. Did you miss that bit?

Where did I say I support both sides? I have not said that. I said that I read all sides. Please show where I did. I stated that I do not believe we have the full truth yet.

We find the truth from many sources - by reading the news from opposing sides, by investigating. You have stated you support the Chinese government. Does that mean you accept their version of every single event?

Also, where have I defended the media of any country? Please answer that.
