CHICOM FLU: The Same Media(D) That Was So Upset About ‘Russian Collusion’ Is Now Pushing Chinese Propaganda

Written by Wes Walker on March 19, 2020

They’ve been 90% negative or more against this administration from the beginning. Isn’t it time we start questioning THEIR motives?

Here’s one NBC employee crowing in delight about how the current snapshot of the economy (which has just suffered GLOBAL shutdown) looks at the moment:

He thinks that’s somehow a TRUMP thing, as though having Hillary could somehow have waved a ‘magic wand’ and steered us through this crisis. If we’ve dropped that much from record highs, what does he suppose our stock market would look like today if we began at much more modest numbers — 2008 levels? Maybe worse? We’ll never know.

Now the demonize Trump crowd have moved on to a new strategy that looks exactly like their default strategy: Call Trump racist.

Of course, to play that card, the supposedly ‘free press’ must first sell out some part of their soul (if it’s not in hock already) to the Chinese Communist Party… and play the role of Pravda on behalf of China’s President Xi.

Fredo, not surprisingly, is up to the task — as are many other media asshats.

Congrats, Fredo. You’ve become the mouthpiece for Communist Chinese propaganda. It’s hard to be faker fake news than that.

If the Chinese government spent as much time working on educating its people and regulating dangerous markets as it does on secrecy and propaganda efforts, maybe it wouldn’t have to worry as much about diseases being named after it.
The World Health Organization and other sensitive souls have instructed us to stop referring to the new strain of coronavirus as the “Wuhan” or “Chinese” flu because of the racist connotations. I’m disinclined to curb my speech to placate Chinese propagandists — and it seems to me the aversion to those terms is less about racism than about averting blame. But in the spirit of comity, and avoiding disparaging an entire nation, I’m happy to call it the ChiCom Flu moving forward. — National Review

HERE is what Cuomo seems to have forgotten:

The ChiCom government really DOES and SHOULD wear responsibiliy for the size and scope of this crisis. Had they not been so busy covering up their biological answer to Chernobyl, the rest of the world could have gotten ahead of it, could have sent specialists to help contain and treat it locally, could have set up safeguards to minimize spread.

But no.

China waited until the problem was too big to solve before even acknowledging it existed. Citizen reporters were silenced. Data was suppressed and destroyed. China has been pushing a made-in-America conspiracy theory about the WuFlu’s origins to cover their ass and look like the victim rather than the incompetent tyrannical regime that they are.

They’ve kicked Western reporters out of China, now, too.

This is awkward, considering the Western press has significant financial interests in China. Do they condemn China, and risk hurting their bottom line?

Imagine if during the height of the Cold War, a media already combative against President Reagan was also heavily invested in the Soviet Union financially. Pretend the Soviet Union could leverage vast amounts of propaganda using our entertainment, news and print media as Reagan told them to tear down the Berlin Wall.

Due to either a complicit corporate media in America, China is presently engaged in a highly organized propaganda war against the United States, not dissimilar from that analogy. As COVID-19 spreads across the United States, mainstream outlets are publishing Chinese state apologia across the web, and China is leveraging their clear influence over these markets, using the Hong Kong protest blackouts as a blueprint. In recent weeks, three major national news outlets are guilty of this. The only question remains why.

…Why are major media outlets in the United States running interference for the Chinese government? Several newspapers and cable news channels scrambled to decry any use of ‘Wuhan Virus’ as xenophobic and racist, after weeks of deploying the term themselves. This appeared to be a coordinated effort to deflect blame from China.

We hear a lot of whining from the press when they’re dubbed the ‘enemy of the people’. Frankly, the regular grandstanding of reporters like CNN’s Jim Acosta who use their airtime to self-promote isn’t behavior deserving of this label — annoying though it may be. But when news outlets parrot the Chinese government and shield them from any responsibility for the global pandemic, under the guise of political correctness or distaste for the current administration, the moniker seems a lot more fitting. — Specator
