supchina = fake news?

I have to say I have me doubts about this new ‘media startup’ that is owned by Tencent. Reason? Check out these recent articles:

Do we really need to worry so much about Chinese nationalism?

No, 10,000 were not killed in China’s 1989 Tiananmen crackdown

China advances gene editing with American technology

ok, not fake, just very China-friendly/sympathetic fluff.

the news today

I don’t actually keep up with the news, unlike most “educated” Americans I seldom read papers regularly IRL or on the internet. It’s not that it’s very hard to generate interest in it after living abroad for so long, rather it’s more like I have too many other things to read and most reports these days are designed to get you all riled up about what turns out to be nothing. Practically everything the world can come up with has already become a routine. War in the middle east? China and Japan angry about each other? Another psychopath killed 30 people in America? I’ve read all that a million times. Come up with something new already! And then they do…and then I read the news.

German news, funded by CIA

Udo Ulfkotte, a former editor of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
(which is one of Germany’s largest newspapers), has decided to go
public about the corruption of himself and the rest of the Western
‘news’ media, because he finds that this corruption is bringing Europe
too close to a nuclear war against Russia, which he concludes the U.S.
aristocracy that controls the CIA wants to bring about, or else to bring
closer to the brink.
