The other day on Twitter, Robby Starbuck suggested CNN change its name to XiNN.
I think that’s the perfect name for the CCP’s American Propaganda Arm. Their insistence on parroting the Chinese Communist Party’s propaganda is frightening from a cable news network that claims it pursues “facts first.”
On Sunday, XiNN posted an article at their website whose source was the Chinese State-run paper Global Times. Great source, guys!
They initially gave the article this title: “China’s PLA Navy is controlling coronavirus and aircraft carrier’s deployment proves it, report says.”
They have since “updated” the article title to “Chinese state media claims country’s navy not affected by coronavirus.”
Imagine if President Trump said something similar. Here’s how XiNN would’ve titled the article: “Trump claims, without evidence, country’s navy not affected by coronavirus.”
But since the claim comes from China’s state-run media, XiNN doesn’t bother with the “without evidence” caveat. Because XiNN is America’s Source for Chinese Propaganda.
Let me sum up the article for you:
China says they’ve controlled the spread of coronavirus in their navy, unlike those dummies in the United States Navy.
The reported absence of cases among China’s armed forces comes despite the fact that thousands of military personnel were sent to Wuhan to assist in front line medical efforts. It also comes in sharp contrast to other military powers, notably the United States, which have seen an uptick in cases in recent weeks.
As if to underscore this point, China’s official military news agency has taken to proclaiming the navy’s operational readiness in the face of the global pandemic. Earlier this week, a report detailing the deployment of a Chinese naval flotilla to the Pacific was offered as evidence that the People’s Liberation Army Navy has reportedly done a better job controlling coronavirus than the US Navy.

Why on earth would an American cable news outlet bother repeating the claims of the Chinese Communist Party at all? It isn’t “news;” it’s state-run propaganda churned out by a totalitarian government that has lied about everything since the start of this pandemic.
Well, I suppose Jeff Zucker could have a financial stake in China that is motivating this push. The Biden family can’t be the only ones getting rich off the ChiComs.
Then again, I think XiNN would parrot Chinese Communist Propaganda for free if doing so paints the US and most especially President Trump in a bad light.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend, after all. And they are both the Enemy of the American people.
Zucker despises Trump. He wants him gone. And he’ll do anything to make that happen. Frankly, I think Zucker would eat bat soup if President Xi told him it would hasten President Trump’s fall.
Does anyone actually believe that the ChiComs would admit it if the Wuhan virus was running rampant in the PLA Navy?
I mean, other than XiNN, does anyone think that after months of lies, disinformation and silencing Chinese doctors who tried to get the truth out, the ChiComs would suddenly shift gears and say, “Hey, let’s start telling the unvarnished truth.”
Fact is, even in this article, XiNN is still repeating the lie that only 80,000 people in China contracted the Wuhan virus.
I guess what bothers me the most about an American cable news outfit going balls to the wall on behalf of the ChiComs is that I’m not at all surprised by it.
I wish I was. But I’m not.
It doesn’t even surprise me that XiNN is not alone in this effort to peddle China’s lies. They’re all doing it – MSNBC, the Washington Post, Bloomberg News, the New York Times — all of them are playing defense for the ChiComs while blaming President Trump for this pandemic.
And they’re not the only ones. Tech giants like Twitter, YouTube and Facebook are censoring any news reports that paint the Chinese Communist Party in a bad light.
Last week The Epoch Times released an excellent documentary called “Tracking Down the Origin of the CCP Virus.” I watched it yesterday on YouTube and I highly recommend it.
Then this morning, I saw that iOTWReport did a post linking to the video, but when readers clicked the link to watch it, they discovered that YouTube had marked the video as PRIVATE.
I just checked again now, and it is available to watch. I strongly suggest you carve out an hour and watch it – quickly before YouTube once again restricts it.
Because this documentary is exactly the kind of information that XiNN and the rest of the ChiCom propagandists will not run. Because their job isn’t to investigate and inform.
It never was.
