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.”
