Qiushi, The Chinese Communist Party’s flagship publication published an article that Xi Jinping wrote, titled, “Accelerate the Development of Media Integration and Build a Communication Pattern for Omnimedia.”
The article emphasized that it is an imperative issue to promote media integration and build the Omnimedia. It asked that the products of the information revolution be used to enlarge and strengthen the CCP’s official media.
The article proposed to build a batch of “influential and competitive” new mainstream media. The mainstream media are said to give priority to a mobile platform and should firmly occupy the “commanding heights” of public opinion to give ideological guidance. The article suggested using artificial intelligence in gathering news and in production, distribution, reception, and feedback.
