Well let me see er.... I'm guessing they make fun of our race, by our i mean all the Chinese or asians in this thread o; simply because they fear us? Sure the american have nuclear bombs, but hey, the eastern part of the world is 2x more dangerous than the West since the United States holds most power on the West and Asia holds most power on the East. Compare size and technology and you'll see why xD You don't have to agree with me on this~ I'm just saying random things cause i'm bored

1st you want proof?
Wikipedia great firewall of china, theres your proof.

2nd get this into your head, if the media sensationalises anything it does it to everything, look at the dirt it dug up about our battery farms over here (channel 4 even did a series about it) and then say we're picking on china and constantly reporting bad stuff about it

What about the scrapping of the 10p tax rate and the cash for honours scandel, all these were reported AT LEAST as much as bad storys about china

in the west we have a lot of very good cultural programmes about china that dont even mention politics or anything bad at all. in the west there is a distinction made between china, and the chinese government. you will find unflattering reporting about the chinese government, but not about china and the chinese people. most news is about bad news, thats the nature of news. it isnt restricted to china and reporting about china. there are unflattering reports about english leaders and politicians, the same for the united states, and any other country. there are MORE bad stories about our own leaders than about chinas as well.

however, we in the west have been reporting the elections in zimbabwe and how its leader mugabe is withholding the election results in order to not be defeated. people in zimbabwe in hospitals are reporting incidents of torture and murder ordered by mugabe in order to force a change in vote while he argues for a recount, and a revote. with all of this happening china doesnt do itself any favours by sending a huge shipment of arms on a big ship to south africa bound for mugabe's regime, which would in turn support his regime. it would be irrisponsible journalism to NOT report on this and how the ship was turned away from south africa.
you should know at all that the average person in the west and the media also reports on english and american countries who deal in arms, so not even this is restricted to reporting on china.

if you dont live in the west (or definitely in the uk) you wouldnt know what reports we are given on china, so of course you wouldnt know about all the really wonderful cultural programmes we have about china on our televisions every week that are incrediblly flattering to the chinese people.

EDIT: ive just noticed you live in the uk
seriously, you should know better! do you watch the WHOLE of the news? and do you watch anything else? watch the news tonight and time how many anti english government stories there are versus chinese ones.

its probablly not just about milk. its relevent whenever a foreign company buys a domestic company because different companies like to run their businesses in different ways, in some cases this can mean job losses for locals which can effect the lives of those who lose their jobs and the economy also. it isnt racist reporting for reporting it because its a japanese company, its probablly just making people aware that there may be some changes within a large company. its economics basically.

Western news networks sensationalize anything they think will jack up their ratings. The most recent one, with the release of gta 4 caused a ruckus in western news network.

Bad news = good news for the media = good ratings. The US media exaggerate almost about everything. One thing, a kid brought a gun to school and was showing off to his friends and accidentally shot himself in the legs. The Media said the kid brought a gun to school to shoot someone.

Dude that was one story that was not exaggerated. Sure all news networks like bad news cos it equals good ratings but the BBC for example is not allowed to lie as it gets funding from the UK government and even it was saying just how bad the thing in tibet was. Do you even know the full tibet story about what the chinese have done to them in the past for their own selfish reasons? I mean seriously China's internet is so restricted that its known as the 'great firewall of china' and all its media is censored to make china look good, foreign news reporters weren't even allowed in to Tibet for christs sake that just shows how much china was trying to hide what went on there. Its not Biased because China is such a screwed up country that thats the truth, there IS a lot thats wrong with it- a lot more than is right. If you want proof than you should note that its always China that gets bad press, not all asian countries. Japan for example hardly gets mentioned.
