RFA: China’s Major Official Media Do Not Report the Slump in China Stock Market

On August 26, 2015, Radio Free Asia (RFA) published an article commenting on how quiet China’s official media have been on the China stock market slump. The sharp fall of the stocks in China’s market affected at least 70 million Chinese active investors as wells as the whole global stock market. However, those media that are China’s official mouthpiece, such as People’s Daily, Xinhua, and China’s Central Television did not even mention such a big incident. Why not? According to one of the interviewees, China’s official media always like to report good news rather than bad news. When, from the government’s point of view, there is no hope for China’s stock market, it is normal for the official media to avoid the topic.”
