It's not just their mainstream media. Also their think-tanks and lobby corners. Both feed on each other's works without on-the-ground and face-to-face pre-verification of what they write which are only an inch from sensationalism by just making counter-balancing but vacuous statements as if doing so will add any authority to their piece.
In many cases, what they have written on China reeks of political predation with commenters on each anti-China piece falling over one another in obeisant parroting of whatever on China hurled by their favorite politicians.
None so far has ever scientifically examined the facts in their own turf instead for the real situation they are in which has caused their politicians to lash out at others which would have been a shtick performance but for the deadly serious disruptive consequences of measured global responses.
As mouthpieces and organs for so-called advanced civilizations, they have conveniently used their media channels to tar and traduce China today as an existential threat, scapegoat, grilled mutton even. Yesterday was DPRK. Or was it Russia, Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Germany, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Philippines, Saudi Arabia..... A quasi-hysterical, politically motivated, hysteresis loop, perhaps?
Yes, issues and contentions, perceived antagonists and adversaries, such be the ingredients to make news in the cauldron of populist journalism but what about non-silo reporting, seeing things from the other country's point of view, truth and facts, principles of rationalism, diplomacy and progress? Or are today's western media and country experts so open to their own scar-spangled cakeism that they have become but vote-box carpetbaggers by readership proxy of the very 'stormy' swamp of their political masters?
Maybe they take it out on countries like China and Russia because everyday they have to wince while reading their own headlines as their own hand-wrought and direct evidence of decline. Like today's:
