Western Media Making up Fake News about China

Western media are full of fake news about China. A typical example is their fake reports about debt trap concerning the lease of Sri Lanka’s Hambantota Port, which China has not said much to refute as China focuses on doing its own jobs well and it was a business transaction between a Chinese company and some Sri Lankan companies instead of between governments.

Perhaps as China does not care much about refuting fake news, some Western media has become entirely blatant in making up fake news.

UK’s Star News claims in its report “Rumours swirl after President Xi Jinping disappears as coronavirus rapidly spreads” on February 6 that Chinese “President hasn’t been seen in public in several days and missed his regular media appearances” but Xi appeared on CCTV on February 5 in a footage about his meeting with visiting Cambodian Prime Minister (http://tv.cctv.com/2020/02/05/VIDEge94cLKcARoeizjw2i7w200205.shtml?spm=C31267.PFsKSaKh6QQC.S71105.4)
