Gaddafi’s Unwanted China Praise
By Jason MiksFebruary 23, 2011

      
  StumbleUponDiggDeliciousRedditYahoo BuzzMixxGoogle BuzzPlurkI’m sure China’s
leaders won’t be thanking Libyan leader Col. Muammar Gaddafi for his fulsome
praise last night of China’s approach to the Tiananmen Square crackdown.
With pressure mounting for him to step down, Gaddafi launched a blistering
attack on what he described as drug-fuelled ‘cockroach’ protesters who he
claimed were ‘drunken and duped.’ Speaking for well over an hour, Gaddafi vowed
to stay and fight on in Libya until the ‘last drop’ of his blood in a
fist-banging display of furious rhetoric.
On Tiananmen, Gaddafi said: ‘Students in Beijing protested for days near a
Coca-Cola sign...Then the tanks came and crushed them.’
In reality Gaddafi appears to have more than exceeded the 1989 crackdown, with
numerous reports of warplanes being used to bomb protesters, as well as
non-Libyan thugs being hired to terrorize citizens in their homes. Such an
escalation against one’s own citizens is bizarre and deeply disturbing. As Matt
Gurney noted in the National Post yesterday, when you start bombing your own
capital, then the end really is near.
China often finds itself in tricky positions over such developments, reluctant
to condemn crackdowns on unrest for fear of drawing attention to its own
‘issues’ with democracy. But perhaps in part because it doesn’t want to get
sucked into any association with a paranoid leader who seems so detached from
the reality unfolding around him, China joined all other UN Security Council
members in demanding an immediate end to the violence, and the immediate lifting
of restrictions on all forms of the media.
There is, though, a certain irony in this last demand—mainland viewers of CNN’s
coverage of the speech found their screens going dark briefly last night when
Gaddafi got to the point about Tiananmen.

Hey EX P,,,,,,I guess U really believe that the CCP can, and NEVER has done anything wrong......NEVER, so what's the point. U are sir, of course, are entitled to your opinion, as I am. However, my thoughts are not clouded through the mist of a Opaque and totally un-accountable system such as the CCP cult.
I can, and as U do enter into many a discussion........I hasten to mention this is my first(but not last) venture on this board.I do really beleive that many of the worlds governments are absolute rubbish, and that includes your "can do nothing wrong CCP"  To go on, and try to show U that, the %^&&*()(CCP were doing business with Gaddaffi is pointless. U, have only danced around the finer points of this discourse and have refused to accept that the ^&**()()__)_)_)(*&^&CCP would NEVER EVER be in the wrong,          No matter, how many others, know the real TRUTH.......In the coming weeks all we be exposed,but of course, as usuall, the people in China will not know the TRUTH, they will only read and hear what the CCP tells them.................or will they................Hey, remember the Train crash.....................which EX P, I know it's off TOPIC, but U, as such a wonderful keeper of the Orwellian system that the CCP uses, could U please tell me, of ANY COUNTRY in this sorry world of ours THAT BURIED A $%^^&& TRAIN 12 HOURS after a terrible accident AND DIDN'T even BOTHER to conduct a proper search and upon burying said train, destroyed a lot of evidence......................I mean, thats a bad connection, BUT it's THERE isn't IT!  So, U sir would believe a government, that will cover up a terrible train crash, would NOT also COVER any and EVERY link with Gaddaffi???
Oh don't worry U other CCP darlings out there...........THE ^&*(( WEST is just as bad, but AT LEAST WE CAN SAY AND PRINT IT!!!

U just have to break free, and by the way............ Ezzat Shahrour (伊扎特): “The Arab People Have 100,000 Questions for Chinese
Media”

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

China Media Project has translated a Chinese blog post by Ezzat Shahrour, Al
Jazeera’s chief correspondent in Beijing, on his views of Chinese media coverage
of the “Arab Spring.” Shahrour, who has often been cited by official Chinese
media for his views on Western vs. Chinese reporting, slams government efforts
to create a global news brand when their reporting is nothing more than, “an
intentional misreading of the popular will”:


Every time I see Chinese media reports on the Arab revolution I feel like my
blood pressure is starting to rise. My adrenalin starts to race. My colleagues
advise me to cut back on my reading of Chinese newspapers, saying, “Look,
reading those all the time does your health no good.” But all joking aside, I
can’t change my habits. Reading the Chinese newspapers has already become a
daily must for me. And while I know it’s harmful, I can’t help myself. It’s the
same as with cigarettes and coffee, another of my “bad habits.” Of course, when
I talk about “harm” done, I’m not talking about the Chinese media themselves,
but rather about their position on issues in the Arab world, and their
intentional misreading of the popular will.

I just don’t see what the point is of media spending so much money to prepare
their journalists to go to a dangerous place like Libya when all these reporters
do is simultaneous interpretation in China of Ghaddafi’s own television station.
Can’t this sort of news coverage be done just as well from Beijing? Isn’t it a
complete waste of money? In their live reports, the Chinese reporters constantly
emphasize that the majority of Libyans support Ghaddafi, so I suppose those
opposition members who are gathering daily on the streets and in public squares
must be from some fairy wonderland (or the Chinese media believe, like Ghaddafi,
that these demonstrators are just “rats”)? The Chinese media tell us how
Ghaddafi’s forces are gaining ground on the opposition forces, but they don’t
tell us that there are tens of thousands of foreign mercenaries killing Libyan
people at Ghaddafi’s behest. They tell us that the people of Libya all enjoy
free medical insurance, but they don’t tell us how many hospitals Ghaddafi has
built in Libya during his 42-year rule. They tell us how the people of Tripoli
are all so grateful to Colonel Ghaddafi, but they don’t tell us that in this
country that exports 1.6 million barrels of oil a day, six million people live
on daily rations of porridge. The so-called Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab
Jamahiriya is nothing more than a bad check.

[...] As I see it, media have responsibility and an obligation to report events
comprehensively. Media should report it how they see it and how they know it, no
matter whether the facts suit their own value judgements. Libyan state
television can be used as one source of information. Through it you can
understand the situation with Tripoli and Ghadaffi’s faction. But this is
definitely not the only source of information. The rebels in Benghazi are people
too, and they are an important side of this conflict. What I actually see,
though, is that Chinese journalists are active every day in the hotels and on
the streets of Tripoli, accompanying Ghadaffi loyalists to streets, hospitals
and schools that have been prearranged for the convenience of their reporting.
Their [media] logos frequently appear in videos in which Ghaddafi is shouting
out slogans, but it’s hard to find them at important press conferences given by
the opposition party.

Information is the glue that links media and viewers together. For this reason,
the reliability of information becomes the standard for judging a media’s
credibility. Media are not about proselytizing, they are an industry, an
industry whose responsibility is to transmit information. And yet, during each
successive sudden-breaking story, the effect Chinese media have as a fourth
estate falls far behind that of the internet and personal media.

"Oh, but since when has China actually had any beef witzh Al Quaeda?"

How did you arrive at this conclusion? That I am implying that China has a beef with Al Qaeda?

Chuckle, chuckle, chuckle....!

Allow me to explain; It is to emphasize the hypocrisy of the west, especially the US, that they scream and shout about Al Qaeda, the terrorist enemy, at their doorsteps. And now, voila!, they have Al Qaeda as an ally against Ghadaffi....!!!

And the man leading these Al Qaeda 'allies' actually sent his 'Jihad Joes' to kill U.S. 'GI Joes' in Iraq...!!!

I think this is positively hilarious! Don't you....?

Chuckle, chuckle, chuckle....!

(How are you, by the way? Been a long time. Any plans for Golden Week which will soon be here?)
