Well I was able to read news about false reports by CNN and other western media regarding the Tibet issue... SO who's telling the truth? and will this matter affect the relationship of the westerners and the Chinese people?

Bias - It is ubiquitous. We will never know unless we find out for ourselves. =_=

I am kind of shocked of how great the difference was when I watched CNN's report about Tibet. What a shame.

I was also shocked when I read about it.. Didn't knew that the news I was reading was all lies.. I first read a news about Chinese police killing Tibetans in a RIOT and I was thinking how bad China was.. I almost believed it and was angry on China for doing that to their people but upon reading the articles how CNN distorted the truth I was kinda feel ashamed.. I've heard European media already apologized to Chinese I hope CNN and other western media will do the same.. Here in Philippines fair media coverage always comes first. getting both sides reactions about the certain issues. I was kinda disappointed for the top MEDIA Corp to lie about the issue.

People should look at ALL news objectively.

But CNN should not apologize for getting their story wrong. Why?
First of all, do you actually think the CCP controlled news and media in China would actually admit to the public that they killed Tibetans? Of course not. They would censor that story and deny it like hell. Maybe they were not wrong at all? Is it so impossible to believe?
Secondly, China tries to control foreign journalists from reporting freely in China. They bring escorts with foreign journalists to intimidate people being interviewed so news reports are not honest but what the CCP wants the world to hear. If the CCP controls foreign journalists like this, think about how distorted China's own media must be.

Great site, examples of how the media alters the real story. Doesn't matter if you don't understand Chinese, the subheadings on the pictures are English.

I dont know where you got that photo from, but read this. http://edition.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/asiapcf/03/15/tibet.unrest/index.html?eref=edition

and the caption says "Tibetans throw stones at army vehicles on a street in the capital, Lhasa."

Its amazing how quickly people can get critical of American news while at the same time have been ignoring a lifetime of Chinese censorship and unreported stories.

Interesting. I got that image from anti-cnn.com.

Anyway, I browsed the CNN archives, they seemed to have changed their opinion on the whole issue.

Well yeah I've also read a news which came from BBC and CNN that China is very strict with releasing news about whats happening in their country... But how do I believe if its true or not.. Upon visiting the anti-CNN website Ive read a lot of their posters which are chinese said that we didn't know whats really happening in their country not unless we go there.. That what have CNN has written were false reports.. But yeah this is really confusing of whose telling the truth is it the western reporters or the Chinese students? Well Im not really taking sides between the two of them just like to know the truth its so hard reading a news when my mind is confuse..
