Who controls the media?

In the case of China that is easy; the government . And Chinese news can be quite mediocre in its presentation.

That especially includes stories about the west. It tends to focus on facts only.

The only time I have ever really seen it become slightly egregious, is in discussing the DL where it tends to use certain pragmatics to demean.

In the west however, that is quite a different story.

Who controls the media?

In the west however, that is quite a different story.

It is a corporate venture and therefore has to make money.

Western people need the news sensationalized to find it palatable.

A good example is the sales figures for each paper and it can be easily seen that the more sensational and speculative the news, then the more popular.

Control would be the dictate of the corporate media owners and one could, at a guess, say that they are influenced by their direct circle of contacts, which is a proposition of the ‘Elite Model’.

Media owners are in the same social strata as government and other corporate owners.

We can assume that big business and government policy will play straight into the ‘old boys’ network.

A ‘nod and wink policy’ which ensures a mutual benefit within that specific social strata.

Expatter: nothing there yet to say why the western media as a whole is all but free and controlled by a hidden agenda.  You've said that the government controls the Chinese media: who controls the western media?

The Agenda

First, who sets government policy?

In China that is clear it is the government and its immediate contacts.

But certainly all government policy is voted on by the CCP representatives.

In China the media is controlled and produces news to simulate policy.

That stated policy is ‘a harmonious society’.

The people become very proud of China and also protective.

Plus of course national and local news is given in a factual manner to show that the government is concerned with society and its daily workings.

Odd occasions might be to stir emotions concerning major external events against China such as the incident in Belgrade.

Eggxactly.

Facts are facts.

Now slither your trope and ad hominem off somewhere else.

Worm.
