Off-the-cuff and on-the-ground views from China Support Network activists
Wednesday, June 02, 2010
Hooray for Associated Newspapers!
UK newspaper, the Daily Mail, deserves praise and encouragement from the China Support Network.
On June 2, 2010, their reporting referred to "the June 4 demonstrations, in which 3,000 protesters were killed."
This is worthy reporting, unlike that which has been seen for almost 21 years in the United States' mainstream media. U.S. outlets such as the Associated Press and TV networks have, for two decades, genuflected to Beijing's Propaganda Minister, every time they report "hundreds" killed in mainland China's bloody Tiananmen Square crackdown, which ended the June 4 demonstrations of 1989.
Kudos to a newspaper that isn't afraid of the propaganda ministry! :)
