The Mid-Day Campaign Update
The left-wing activists who run NPR actually performed a rare public service on Tuesday, publishing an expose’ that reveals how Bloomberg News covers for the communist Chinese government in order to maintain its license to operate within that nation. The story demonstrates how Bloomberg’s longing to remain entangled with the inherently corrupt and dishonest ChiComs rendered its own operation equally as corrupt and dishonest.
The NPR piece relates that, in 2013, after publishing part 1 of a story detailing the enormous wealth being accumulated by the ChiCom Party elite – typical of what happens in all communist nations – Bloomberg’s China operation drafted part 2 of that story, “focusing on Chinese leaders’ ties to the country’s richest man, Wang Jianlin. Among those in the reporters’ sights: the family of new Chinese President Xi Jinping.” NPR relates that emails show that Bloomberg’s New York honchos expressed excitement upon an initial reading of the piece, but then suddenly quit communicating on the subject, and the story never ran.
The Bloomberg China office’s continuing inquiries about the matter eventually got them a conference call with the company’s famously-bombastic original editor-in-chief, Matthew Winkler, and NPR somehow obtained a recording made of that call. Boy, is it revealing.
From the NPR Article:
“It is for sure going to, you know, invite the Communist Party to, you know, completely shut us down and kick us out of the country,” Winkler said. “So, I just don’t see that as a story that is justified.”
He expressed great apprehension because of the potential consequences of publishing another investigation. In this case, it was one that would itemize the links between top Chinese Communist Party leaders and the country’s wealthiest man.
Winkler returned to those fears repeatedly. “The inference is going to be interpreted by the government there as we are judging them,” Winkler said. “And they will probably kick us out of the country. They’ll probably shut us down, is my guess.”
Winkler suggested reporters could find a uniquely “Bloomberg” way to cover the wealth of Chinese ruling elites. But he added a caution about covering the regime.
“It has to be done with a strategic framework and a tactical method that is … smart enough to allow us to continue and not run afoul of the Nazis who are in front of us and behind us everywhere,” Winkler said, according to the audio reviewed by NPR and verified by others. “And that’s who they are. And we should have no illusions about it.”
At the time, two Bloomberg editors told NPR the story didn’t run because it needed additional reporting. Winkler publicly said much the same. But these audio recordings reveal otherwise. They also show how much newsroom leaders were worried about losing lucrative business in China.
So, basically what we see here is a “news” organization quashing the real news in order to avoid offending corrupt national leaders the editor-in-chief refers to as “Nazis.” Yes, by all means, let’s not offend the Nazis. Let’s be sure to play nice with them and continue to give them access to our “news” platform so that our company and multi-billionaire owner who has enormous business interests in China can keep them intact.
Now, if you think Bloomberg is the only U.S. “news” media operation with enormous business ties to the ChiCom government, go Google “AT&T China.” When you do that, the second link that comes up provides you with a link to AT&T’s Global Business landing page for its operations in China. Here is an excerpt from the text on that landing page:
AT&T has been in China for more than 30 years. AT&T China has strong technical expertise with branch offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Tianjin and Shenzhen.
Through collaborations with local service providers, AT&T is able to make available an advanced Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) IP-based network with MPLS Service Nodes in mainland China, covering more than 300 cities around the country.
With such teaming with local service providers, clients across China can benefit from an industry-leading portfolio that includes Mobility, Network, Network Security, Cloud, Hosting, Voice, Unified Communications and Application services. These are implemented locally by experienced personnel and supported by a local AT&T team.
AT&T should be the first port of call for any business or organization looking to mobilize its people, assets or information across China and beyond.
Oh. You don’t say.
Why is AT&T relevant to this conversation? Why, because AT&T is the corporate owner of … wait for it … oh, you have to wait for this one … you guessed it: CNN!
Now you know why you see CNN talking heads like Jim Acosta, Jake Tapper and Fredo Cuomo pushing ChiCom talking points verbatim out to their viewers every day.
Now, go Google “Comcast China,” and note that the second link that comes up is to a 2014 Forbes story titled, “Comcast To Build A $3.3 Billion Theme Park In Beijing.” $3.3 billion, huh? That’s a lot of money, even to Mike Bloomberg.
The next link that comes up is to Xfinity’s landing page for its multiple China-based business offerings. Guess which corporation owns Xfinity now? If you said ‘Comcast,’ you are catching on here. And now you know why the talking heads on NBC and MSNBC – also wholly-owned subsidiaries of Comcast – keep reciting ChiCom talking points to you 24 hours a day.
You want to know why CBS shills for China? Go Google “Viacom China.” Want to know why ABC does the same? Google “Disney China,” and you will find stories about billions upon billions of that company’s investments in China, all dependent on maintaining the good graces of the ChiCom government that is led by the very same Xi Jinping, who was to have been one of the prime subjects of that Part 2 Bloomberg story that never ran back in 2013.
And now, as the late, great Paul Harvey used to say, you know the rrrrrrrrrrrest of the story.
The mainstream U.S. news media consists of garbage operations run by garbage human beings who are willing to literally sell their souls and professional ethics in order to protect the business interests of their corporate overlords. They truly are the Enemies of the People.
The only way to remedy this situation is for the Trump Department of Justice to use the nation’s anti-trust laws to outlaw the ownership of news media operations by corporations or individuals with foreign business interests. This current situation simply cannot be allowed to continue.
That is all.
