Xinhua Article Questions Pelosi: What Does Pelosi Want to Do?

On Xinhua’s website on April 14, an article, by Shen Dingli, Deputy Director of the International Affairs Institute of [Shanghai’s] Fudan University, described U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as “opposing China no matter what” and questioned what she wanted to do [about China]. The article said that Pelosi started a Congressional Resolution to prohibit U.S. officials from attending the Beijing Olympics using government funds, though she has no control over the U.S. executive branch.

The article complimented President Bush, saying that Bush’s views and actions [regarding Sino-U.S. cooperation for the Olympics] are responsible. The article continued, “Pelosi even publicly called on people to make trouble at her hometown San Francisco during the Olympic Torch relay. Being ranked third to succeed President’s position and as the Speaker [of the House], Pelosi is naturally a top level leader. At such a high level position of public power, she even despises the law, supporting “Tibetan Independence” forces to challenge the Olympic Torch and interfer with the U.S. government’s protection of the Torch relay…”

People’s Daily: What is the Intention of the Washington Post?

People’s Daily calls a series of commentaries on Tibet published by Washington Post in the past two months are full of one-sided opinions, distorted comments and a shameful act by a few mainstream medias in the US. It claims that the “Lhasa riots as well as the chaos on the streets of London and Paris” have helped the people around the world to unfold the fake mask worn by the Dalai’s group and has allowed the world to see the truth of the so called “righteous, objective, independent” model portrayed by a few US medias.”

Xinhua: U.S.-Russian Summit “Whitewashes” the Relationship Between the Two

On April 7, 2008, Xinhua issued a commentary on recent Bush’s visit to Russia. The “warm” meeting between Putin and Bush appeared to be inconsistent with the low tempreture of the bilateral relationship in 2007, Xinhua commented. It stated that the two were closer this time out of their own political agenda – none wanted to leave a negative diplomatic legacy. Xinhua is skeptical and predicts that the future of the Declaration on the Framework of the U.S. – Russia Strategic Relations" will most likely remain unknown.

Xinhua: Western Media Influences Public Opinion against China

“Since the beginning of last year, western media on China has primarily been negative. Starting from huge trade deficit of the United States, western media frequently ran reports that the United States government official request China to accelerate RMB appreciation, followed by exaggerated news reports on quality of China-made products that led to China-made products being taken off the shelves in the U.S. stores. Subsequently, western media engaged in massive attacks on the quality of environment as the Beijing Olympics approaches, alleging that Beijing does not meet the prerequisites to host the Olympics. Recently, Tibetan issue has become the focus of western media. Due to the intensive negative reports by the Western media, the Americans will naturally regard China as one of their primary hostile countries.”
