Internet Hacking: Why Does the West Always Make China the Scapegoat?

Xinhua reprinted a Wenhui Daily article complaining that the West has singled out China as being responsible for the recent hacking of the Australian government’s computer network. According to the article, there are three reasons why the West always blames China. First, many Western mainstream media hold a deep prejudice and bias against China; second, following the logic of this cold war mentality, it is politically correct to blame China; and third, attacking China is risk free and may increase these media’s sales.
