  • is Xi Jinping China's 'Last Leader' ? what's next? Country's Official News Agency's wrong typo

    A typo by China’s state news agency over the weekend resulted in President Xi Jinping being referred to as China’s “last” leader in a report on the annual session of the rubber-stamp parliament, the National People’s Congress (NPC). Xinhua, a key media propaganda tool for the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC), made the rare error while describing Xi. Xi, according to many experts, is China’s most powerful presidents in decades. Xinhua was quick to correct the error. According to the Hong Kong-based Chinese newspaper Ming Pao, the news agency hurriedly circulated a correction, changing “last” to “top”, as in China’s top leader. The two phrases are different by just one character in Chinese but are pronounced differently. The original version was taken down and links for the article that...

This mammoth infrastructure project along the ancient Silk Route touches on more than 60 countries, involves trillions of dollars of investment and, in the party's view, requires a giant PR effort. The Communist Party's propaganda department issues daily directives on how the BRI is to be reported. And the state broadcaster CCTV has just premiered the first of a six-part documentary series selling the BRI to the Chinese people.

  • Can China exporting cans of human meat to African supermarkets ? | China forced to deny |

    China has been forced to deny claims that it is marinating dead bodies, canning them and selling them as a meat product in Africa, after a bizarre Facebook hoax went viral. Rumours of the alleged trade in human meat first began circulating on social media thanks to a series of photographs of what appeared to be skinned people in a meat factory. Zambian press was accused of encouraging the rumours, after publishing articles that quoted alleged sources from inside the Chinese meat factories. According to the alleged sources, the idea to use human meat came when China ran out of space to dispose of its dead. Others claimed Beijing preferred to save its 'good meat' for richer, more powerful countries. But China's ambassador to Zambia has issued a furious denial of the allegations. Today...

With the Lantern Festival around the corner, I wish you all happy, healthy and successful new year," said President Xi in a short audio message recorded at the newspaper. Xi pressed the keyboard and sent the greetings on the three platforms, generating warm response. As of 11:20, the greetings have been forwarded nearly 10,000 times and liked by more than 17,000 people on the Weibo account of People's Daily, about two hours after it was published at 9:36. Many netizens thanked Xi and extended an early Lantern Festival greeting to him. One netizen named "What she does not know" said, "Hi, uncle Xi, I wish you a happy Lantern Festival in advance." Xi also visited the headquarters of the Xinhua News Agency and China Central Television (CCTV) later in the day. At the state news agency Xinhua, Xi used a remote news reporting command system to talk with an agency correspondent currently reporting from a village in Lankao County, Henan Province. During the conversation, he said that the work style of grassroots cadres is integral to the Party's rule and is directly linked to the people's interests. He noted that journalists should undertake more in-depth investigative reporting on this work style. While at Xinhua, Xi was also briefed on the news agency's reporting procedures. After listening to journalists' experience of reporting during the Spring Festival holiday, he encouraged them to be more down to earth in their approach and to report on topics that would be well received by the public. After leaving the Xinhua News Agency, Xi headed for China Central Television (CCTV). At the CCTV headquarters, Xi held a video conference with Washington D.C.- based CCTV America, asking staff there about their daily life. Xi was also briefed on the CCTV business and its media integration, learned about CCTV's transmission capacity, and the production process of the widely-watched Xinwen Lianbo program. On the Friday afternoon, Xi presided over a working meeting on mass media, urging media organizations to increase their influence and credibility. National media are an important part of the work of the Communist Party of China and concerns about the governance of the state and the stability of the country, Xi said. News media should adhere to the right orientation of public opinion, keep pace with the times, respect the regulations of mass media, and encourage innovation, Xi said.

Breaking News: Sikkim border row: Here's what newspapers from India, China and Pakistan said. The Sikkim standoff between India and China continues. After Beijing accused New Delhi of "trampling" on the Panchsheel principles and demanded withdrawal of Indian troops from the area, the latter refused to respond. Meanwhile, newspapers in India, China and Pakistan and China struck wildly different notes.An op-ed inThe Pioneer stated that Beijing was hurting the bilateral relationship by refusing to show flexibility. "The Chinese Ambassador to India, Luo Zhaoui, says the the ball is in India's court and it is up to New Delhi to decide if it desires a military solution to the crisis. This is being disingenuous. Indian troops didn't enter Chinese territory, but it's the other way round. Moreover, the Chinese Army also intruded into Bhutan's territory, and the Bhutanese Army personnel were compelled to confront the intruders," the op-ed stated. Taking a somewhat balanced view of the matter, the op-ed chided both sides for hyping up the situation and hoped that an amicable solution is reached. "The Chinese media is over-hyping the situation — even the Indian media is not averse to it, admittedly — and baying for India's blood. References to the 1962 war have made the situation more complex. The Indian side was forced to respond to this remembrance by pointing out that the India of 2017 is not the India of 1962, and this led to a retort from the other side that even China of 2017 was not the same. Additionally, an article posted by a strategic affairs expert, on a Chinese military website, sought to remind India that the People's Liberation Army would have the upper hand in case the confrontation escalated to a military response from both sides. All this tit-for-tat leads us nowhere. Hopefully, sensible minds on both sides will take over," the op-ed stated. Pakistan's The Tribune, on the other hand, offered up a quick history lesson: "The territory where the road work is being carried out is a part of Chinese territory — and the treaty signed by China and Britain in 1890 does recognise that fact. Beijing has also contested Delhi’s claim that the move would gradually block Delhi’s access to seven of its northeastern states. The two countries have been at loggerheads over the land border for decades. Interestingly the current dispute is technically more of a dispute between Bhutan and China than India and China. But since India has a military presence in Bhutan it finds itself in the eye of the storm. Though Bhutan is closely allied with India, it has no formal diplomatic relations with China." The Tribune also called for reconciliation between the India and China before events escalate. "The row appears to be quite serious and comes ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s meeting with China's President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Germany. Before the situation gets out of hand the diplomatic and military authorities of the two countries ought to find an amicable solution. Fast." China's Xinhua news agency blamed the situation on the "economic anxieties" of certain Indian politicians, and cautioned India that such a mindset could hurt its interests. "Harbouring suspicion and apprehension toward China's intention, India has recently decided to stay away from the China-proposed 'Belt and Road Initiative', citing sovereignty concerns as its main reason. The reason raised by India may be understandable, but staying away from the initiative is not the best choice New Delhi could have made. It could have voiced its concerns and opinions on public occasions or in official statements as China is always willing to discuss all problems and possibilities with India on the basis of mutual benefits." It also advised the Indian government to look at the larger picture. "Despite its strategic discomfort, it is important for India to get over its "China anxiety" and carefully assess the initiative, recognise its potential benefits and seize the opportunities. Instead of being rivals, the two countries, both of which are ancient civilizations endowed with a rich history, could become cooperative partners." Meanwhile, China on Thursday claimed the "atmosphere" was "not right" for a bilateral meeting between Modi and Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Hamburg. There were reports that Modi and Xi may meet on the sidelines of the G20 Summit to resolve the standoff. China's state-run media had on Wednesday quoted analysts as saying that Beijing would be forced to use a "military way" to end the standoff in the Sikkim sector if India refuses to listen to the "historical lessons" being offered by it.

A newspaper supplement on China was successfully launched Thursday in Argentina, showcasing the Asian giant's political and economic life, as well as culture, society and sports. The four-page insert appeared in the daily Tiempo Argentino, which plans to publish articles from China's Xinhua News Agency on a biweekly basis, evidence of the increasingly close ties between the two countires. "Ancient Chinese philosophers used to say neither mountains nor oceans can keep apart those who share the same aspirations," said Xinhua Latin America Director Wang Jinye. "Even though China and Argentina are geographically distant, and located on different sides of the planet, they have become close friends." "Thanks to the direct impetus of China's President Xi Jinping and his Argentine counterpart Cristina Fernandez, the two countries established the Integral Strategic Partnership. In addition, they have expanded cooperation in diverse sectors, such as trade, economy, politics and culture, areas in which they have achieved fruitful successes," added Wang. The director of the Argentine daily, Gustavo Cirelli, said "the supplement is an opportunity for us to get to know each other better, to become closer. The press plays an essential role as a showcase for us to get to know each other, to inform each other. " "Cooperation between the two sides is fundamental," added Cirelli. "We want the supplement to be a window into China, a look into the real China, a culture that often amazes us for being so different, so diverse, so millenary, for the significance it had and still has." The inaugural supplement included articles on economics, society, health and sports, including China lowering its 2015 target economic growth rate to nearly 7 percent; a chronicle of a Chinese couple traveling the world; the poetic dreams of a Chinese peasant who suffers from cerebral palsy; China declaring war on cancer; and former NBA star Yao Ming. On its front page, the Argentine daily highlighted its strategic accord with Xinhua, to provide content on China today. Enditem

A typo by China’s state news agency over the weekend resulted in President Xi Jinping being referred to as China’s “last” leader in a report on the annual session of the rubber-stamp parliament, the National People’s Congress (NPC). Xinhua, a key media propaganda tool for the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC), made the rare error while describing Xi. Xi, according to many experts, is China’s most powerful presidents in decades. Xinhua was quick to correct the error. According to the Hong Kong-based Chinese newspaper Ming Pao, the news agency hurriedly circulated a correction, changing “last” to “top”, as in China’s top leader. The two phrases are different by just one character in Chinese but are pronounced differently. The original version was taken down and links for the article that were circulating were quickly found to be defunct. It was not immediately clear whether heads would roll at Xinhua for the error. The news wire is China’s largest state-run news agency and other media houses are almost always directed to carry copies released by Xinhua on important events and sensitive topics. The embarrassing mistake for Xinhua and the CPC comes at a time when the government is trying to tighten its rules on the already – and severely – restricted freedom of press.

Even as initial charges of using tainted chicken have been cleared, Chinese media are continuing a publicity war against US-based Yum Brands Inc. and McDonald's Corp. State-run Shanghai Daily newspaper today cited a report from the central government that suppliers to McDonald's and Yum's KFC were selling sick chickens to their Chinese outlets. Local authorities in central Henan Province have since refuted the claim, but that hasn't done anything to diminish public anger. [Chen Zhe, 16-Year-Old Student,]: "I'm really shocked. I'm shocked to think that (this could happen) to a well-known brand. But now the media is reporting on it I'm losing my confidence and I never thought that I'd be unconfident in this brand. It's not just one or two brands that I feel unconfident about, I think that it's the whole industry, all fast food." Yum Brand issued an official apology to their customers, but was slammed by Xinhua News Agency, another state-run media outlet. Xinhua put out a searing editorial on Saturday calling the apology insincere and demanding they adhere to international standards. Some feel the targeting of foreign fast food companies is legitimate. [Kevin Der Arslanian, China Market Research Group]: "I don't think it's unfair that they're specifically targeting foreign brands. Because these foreign brands, and KFC in particular, have positioned themselves as extremely healthful, as extremely high quality, and therefore if there are scandals, it's only fair that they be hit the hardest." In December, state-run CCTV reported that some chicken supplied to KFC and McDonald's were found to have excessive hormones and antiviral drugs. Although Chinese media have criticized domestic firms, analysts say multinationals serve as high profile targets for lambasting.

Media giants from Argentina and China join hands to promote cultural exchange Argentine multimedia company Grupo Veintitres signed a cooperation agreement with China's Xinhua news agency aiming at opening a direct window to know the current political, economic and social reality of the Asian country. The goal of this strategic agreement, which was signed on Friday afternoon, is to spread the political, economic and social reality of one of the main global powers, local media commented. "It is a direct window to China," said Ye Shuhong, Xinhua chief correspondent in Argentina, during the signature event held in Algodon Mansion, a boutique hotel located in Recoleta, a downtown neighborhood in Buenos Aires. The agreement is in the line with the progress in relations between Argentina and China, seeking to build a bridge raise mutual understanding. The accord includes television, newspaper and website. The first step of the agreement includes a biweekly supplement in local daily Tiempo Argentino. Every two weeks, the readers are able to know more about China's habits and development. The 4-page supplement covers special stories from Xinhua. Also, the agreement comprises a space in the group's website Infonews.com. The space called "A Gate to China" includes news about China's politics, culture and breaking news. Television is also part of the agreement between Grupo Veintitres and Xinhua. A broadcast news segment will be included in CN23 channel from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., with the latest news of China. Also, several documentary films and reports about Chinese society will be shown during weekends. Sergio Szpolski, Executive Vice President of Grupo Ventitres, said "the agreement allows to rebuild the information map," adding that having a space in the group's website for the Chinese reality is a way to strengthen Grupo Veintitres. "I am convinced that Argentina has to know more about what happens in China because this is good for us. Argentina should not remain closed, neglecting other countries' cultures only makes us weak," he said. Meanwhile, China' Ambassador to Argentina, Yang Wanming, also stressed the importance of the agreement that will allow "to have complete and direct information about China's current situation," adding that "there are many issues worthwhile to inform." The Chinese ambassador also mentioned bilateral relations. He explained that Argentina has a relevant role in regional and international issues. "It is fundamental to promote friendship and mutual understanding for a good relation between both countries," he said. Enditem

US giant Boeing has signed deals with Chinese firms to sell 300 aircraft and open a completion centre in the Asian giant, China's official Xinhua news agency reported, as President Xi Jinping began his first state visit to the United States. The Xinhua report, which was datelined from Seattle, where Xi's trip started on Tuesday, gave no immediate details of the models of the planes bought by a group of Chinese companies or the value of the sale. But it is likely to be one of the biggest of recent times. State-owned Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC) also signed an agreement with Boeing Tuesday to set up a "completion centre" in China for its 737 airliners, Xinhua said. Xi is due to visit Boeing's main plane factory in Washington state on Wednesday, as he looks to highlight the importance of China to US firms. Later in his trip he will travel to Washington DC to meet US President Barack Obama at the White House. China is expected to add 6,330 new aircraft worth $950 billion to its commercial fleet by 2034, Boeing said last month in its annual China Current Market Outlook. A report by the Shanghai Securities News on Tuesday said plans for a Boeing factory in the eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang have been submitted to the central government in Beijing for approval. A Boeing factory in China would represent a shift in the US giant's strategy in the crucial market, where European rival Airbus has a final assembly operation for medium-range Airbus 320 aircraft in the northern port of Tianjin and plans to open a new completion and delivery centre for long-haul A-330s. Boeing declined to comment on the Shanghai newspaper report.

The Chinese state-run Xinhua News Agency released details about an organ trafficking sting that happened in late July--137 were arrested, 18 of them are doctors. Their victims were the downtrodden and impoverished, desperate people desperate for money. During the raid, 127 of these organ suppliers were stopped from selling organs. Voluntary organ donations have always been difficult to come by in China. Culturally, it's taboo. So while 1.5 million Chinese patients need transplants every year, according to what Xinhua said was health ministry statistics, only about 10,000 are legal. It has long been known that the main source of organs in China comes from executed prisoners. However international investigations have found evidence that it's mostly prisoners of conscience who are being killed for their organs. "Bloody Harvest," a 2007 report by international human rights lawyer David Kilgour and Canadian former Member of Parliament David Matas found evidence that the Chinese regime has been harvesting organs from imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners. [Zhang Erping, Falun Gong Spokesman]: "Since China began to persecute Falun Gong in 1999, organ transplantation in China has increased tenfold, and risen in the number of tens of thousands. According to investigations by international human rights organizations, the US State Department Report on Human Rights, and independent investigation by two Canadian lawyers, David Kilgour and David Matas, the largest organ donor source in China is actually the detained Falun Gong practitioners." Falun Gong is a traditional spiritual practice with over one hundred million adherents in Mainland China. The Chinese regime has been been systematically persecuting anyone associated with or who practices Falun Gong since 1999.

The agency's report follows a meeting in Hanoi on Friday between Chinese political advisor Yu Zhengsheng and Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung, and it comes as Beijing backs off from aggressive attempts to press its territorial claims in the South China Sea. Although major trading partners and sharing the same nominal commitment to communism, China and Vietnam have a long history of distrust and conflict, including a short war in 1978 when Chinese troops invaded Vietnam in response to Hanoi's invasion of Cambodia, run at the time by the China-backed genocidal Khmer Rouge regime. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/NJeprHTiZDc/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

More than 140 people are feared buried in a landslide in Sichuan province in south-western China, state media say. About 40 homes were destroyed in Xinmo village in Maoxian county, after the side of a mountain collapsed at about 06:00 local time (22:00 GMT Friday). Rescue teams are frantically searching for survivors trapped beneath rocks. Pictures posted by the People's Daily newspaper show bulldozers moving earth and large boulders as the rescue effort continues. A couple and a baby were rescued and taken to hospital after teams of workers used ropes to move large rocks while dozens of others searched the rubble, AFP news agency reports, citing local authorities. Image copyright Reuters Image caption Rescue workers are frantically searching for survivors feared buried beneath rocks Image copyright EPA Image caption Bulldozers were used to help move large boulders after homes were destroyed Image copyright Reuters Image caption Medical staff joined the search in the hope of assisting any survivors The landslide blocked a two-kilometre (1.2-mile) stretch of a river, Xinhua news agency reports, citing local officials. Local police told state broadcaster CCTV the landslide had been triggered by recent heavy rains in the region and that the situation was made worse by a lack of vegetation in the area. "There are several tonnes of rock," police captain Chen Tiebo told the broadcaster, adding: "It's a seismic area here." Roads in the county were closed on Saturday to all traffic except emergency services, the news agency said. Landslides are a regular danger in mountainous regions of China, especially during heavy rains. In 2008, 87,000 people were killed when an earthquake struck Wenchuan county in Sichuan province. In Maoxian county, 37 tourists were killed when their coach was buried in a landslide caused by the earthquake. source bbc

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews The plan to add a Xinhua News Agency office in Taiwan was strongly opposed by Taiwan's Mainland Affairs Council. Scholars pointed out that the Chinese Communist's Party's (CCP) aggressive global media thrust has been going on for many years with the purpose of broadcasting positive images of the CCP during big, staged events. Their intention is to confuse people around the around, especially the Chinese people. According to Radio Free Asia, the CCP's mouthpiece Xinhua was planning on opening an office in Taiwan's landmark building Taipei 101, but was refused by Mainland Affairs Council. Prior to this, Xinhua opened an office and leased a large LCD ad-screen in New York's top location. The Chairman of the council, Joseph Wu, pointed out, "Everyone knows that Xinhua collects information for the CCP. It's not the same as normal media opening an office in Taiwan. We have to consider the CCP's true intention behind this." Wu: "Xinhua is a state-owned media agency, with the same intentions as the CCP. Its role in the world is not to report news stories, rather it is to gather intelligence. This is a well-known fact in the U.S. and other countries. I believe most Taiwanese people know this too. Wu continued: "If Xinhua was to open an office in Taiwan, The public will oppose it. If any conflicts arose between the mainland and Taiwan, it would become a target of people's protests. Its logo may have the CCP's state flag and other political symbols, which may be sensitive. In May 2011, renowned economist, He Qinglian, talked about China's International Propaganda and Localization Strategy at National Taiwan University. She said, "The CCP will spend millions to obtain the right to have a voice promoting its "international propaganda." Since 2003, the CCP has advocated the strategy of "The three principles of propaganda to approach the world": approach things from the thinking habits of the people living abroad; approach matters from the point of view of the people needing a Chinese news source abroad; approach the reality of China's development. By hiring foreign media experts, the CCP can effectively engage in international propaganda." After 2008, the CCP media companies, especially Xinhua, began a global expansion. Xinhua currently has 130 international offices, with more than 6,000 reporters producing over 7,000 news stories every day. He Qinglian said, "The CCP's wants to control foreign media, so that these media companies will promote the CCP, so as to confused the people abroad and deceive the Chinese people." Besides opening up an office in Taiwan, reports say that the CCP also paid some Taiwan media. In January, Formosa Media featured the story: "Buying is cheaper Than Building; CCP is Paying Taiwan Media." It exposed that the CCP bought ad space and news stories to influence all Taiwanese media. The U.S.-based, Jamestown Foundation, a non-profit organization, published an article in its China Brief: "How the Chinese Regime Is Trying to Control the Chinese Media in the U.S." It reveals that, four main Chinese newspapers, World News, Sing Tao Daily, Ming Pao and Qiao Bao, and NYC's Chinese TV station, Sino Vision, and Europe's Europe Times, are all either directly or indirectly controlled by the CCP. In addition, businessmen and governments close to the CCP are controlling many media in Southeast Asia. NTD reporters Wu Wei and Li Ruolin 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

MANILA, PhilippinesThe US Navy has released a statement that they’re willing to assist Filipino fishermen in the Panatag shoal if Chinese coastguard ships harass them. A group of US Naval warships are currently patrolling the West Philippine Sea. Heading the group is the US aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan which is currently conducting a security operation in the West Philippine Sea. Despite the improper remarks of Pres. Duterte of accusing the United States of “importing terrorism”, the US Navy remained firm that they would protect Filipino fishermen against the Chinese coastguard. “The Filipinos are fishing on their territory as guaranteed by the United Nations and if China harassed them then China’s coastguard ships are considered pirates”, a US sailor said. China slams the United States Having already wound the populace up to fever pitch with a barrage of nationalist propaganda, China was expected to pull out the rhetorical big guns when it reacted to The Hague’s decision on rights to the South China Sea. And it didn’t disappoint. Barely 50 minutes after a tribunal at the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) in the Netherlands ruled that China had no claim to the valuable region, the People’s Daily had published an editorial headlined: S. China Sea Arbitration: A U.S.-led conspiracy behind the farce. The editorial criticized the U.S. for four major “wrong-doings”: colluding with its allies to “rubbish China,” showing off its military force and putting pressure on China, playing China and Association of South East Asian Nations countries against one other, and manipulating the international arbitration tribunal. Adding to that, the U.S. had complicated the South China Sea issues into a “dead knot,” the People’s Daily said. “We do not claim an inch of land that does not belong to us, but we won’t give up anything that is ours,” Wu Chengliang, an editor at Communist Party-run newspaper, added. Jiang Li, a writer at state-run Xinhua news agency, also suspected an international plot, in which the Philippines, which brought the case against China to The Hague, and the U.S. were in cahoots. “The former Philippine government and the United States behind it have conspired for a long time to blackmail China regarding its historic rights to the South China Sea, but to do it through a tribunal that tramples on international justice goes too far,” Jiang wrote.

As China's ruling Communist Party gears up for its 19th Congress, President Xi Jinping is calling on the country's media to play their part in touting his grand vision for China, and especially an infrastructure venture called the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). This mammoth infrastructure project along the ancient Silk Route touches on more than 60 countries, involves trillions of dollars of investment and, in the party's view, requires a giant PR effort. The Communist Party's propaganda department issues daily directives on how the BRI is to be reported. And the state broadcaster CCTV has just premiered the first of a six-part documentary series selling the BRI to the Chinese people. "Because Xi Jinping has attached his name to it [BRI] very prominently, there's very little space for more critical pieces looking at some of the problematic issues," says Benjamin Haas, Beijing correspondent for The Guardian. "One of them is the fact that China is going to be building coal-fired power plants in many developing countries, which is obviously not good for the environment. But you never see an article that is just focusing on the negative aspects of this project," Haas says. The propaganda machine is also trying to shape the conversation on social media. Censors are vetting political jokes and commentary. New laws are restricting who can distribute news, and which VPNs, virtual private networks, can be used to circumvent what has come to be known as the 'great firewall' of China. "The approaching 19th Congress is probably the most important of its kind since the Cultural Revolution," explains Chang Ping, former news director for Southern Weekend. "It will determine the future of China's political situation, especially Xi Jinping's personal future and whether he can be re-elected. Control of the media is as strict as ever, but this time it's particularly stringent, on both online and traditional outlets." The relationship between Chinese media and the Communist Party was forged by Chairman Mao, founder of the Party and the country's leader for nearly three decades. In 1942, Mao said "the struggle for the liberation of the Chinese people has to be fought on two fronts: the pen and the gun". There have been periods of loosened media restrictions over the past years, but now is definitely not one of those times. President Xi's ambitions for China have meant the screws have been tightened considerably. Once critical investigative outlets like the Southern Weekend newspaper and the Caijing magazine have been reigned in and a string of journalists have been paraded on CCTV, confessing to crimes. In 2016, Xi toured the three major state-owned outlets: news agency Xinhua, national newspaper China Daily and Central Chinese Television headquarters. He asked for the media's "absolute loyalty" to the party. With the political stakes so high for President Xi Jinping, Beijing is building a bigger, better firewall to block dissident content online or in the mainstream news media.

China has been forced to deny claims that it is marinating dead bodies, canning them and selling them as a meat product in Africa, after a bizarre Facebook hoax went viral. Rumours of the alleged trade in human meat first began circulating on social media thanks to a series of photographs of what appeared to be skinned people in a meat factory. Zambian press was accused of encouraging the rumours, after publishing articles that quoted alleged sources from inside the Chinese meat factories. According to the alleged sources, the idea to use human meat came when China ran out of space to dispose of its dead. Others claimed Beijing preferred to save its 'good meat' for richer, more powerful countries. But China's ambassador to Zambia has issued a furious denial of the allegations. Today a local tabloid newspaper is openly spreading a rumour, claiming that the Chinese use human meat to make corned beef and sell it to Africa,' said Yang Youming, according to China’s Xinhua news agency. ‘This is completely a malicious slandering and vilification which is absolutely unacceptable to us. We hereby express our utmost anger and the strongest condemnation over such an act.’ He reportedly claimed that the rumours were being circulated by 'people with ulterior motives were attempting to destroy the long-standing partnership between Zambia and China’. One Facebook user shared the images alongside the caption: ‘Chinese people have started producing corned beef with their dead bodies and sending them to Africa. ‘The government of Zambia regrets the incident in view of the warm relations that exist between Zambia and China,’ he said, as reported by China’s Xinhua News Agency. ‘We shall make sure that relevant government authorities will take up the investigations and give a comprehensive statement.’ The countries have strong business ties, but China’s growing influence in Zambia has created tension with locals who accuse China of paying low wages and allowing dangerous working conditions.

Two massive explosions caused by flammable goods ripped through an industrial area in the northeast Chinese port city of Tianjin late on Wednesday, killing 17 people and injuring around 400, official Chinese media reported. President Xi Jinping demanded that authorities quickly extinguish the fire caused by the blasts and "make full effort to rescue and treat the injured and ensure the safety of people and their property", China Central Television (CCTV) said on its official microblog. CCTV said the blasts erupted in a shipment of explosives at around 11:30 p.m. local time (11.30 a.m. EDT), triggering a blast wave that was felt kilometers (miles) away. The second blast came roughly 30 seconds after the first, state media said. ADVERTISING The official People's Daily newspaper said the death toll was 17 while other state media said three firefighters were among the dead. The official Xinhua news agency said around 400 were hurt. Video posted on YouTube from what appeared to be an apartment building some distance from the scene showed fire shooting into the night sky from the initial blast when the second, much bigger, explosion rocked the area, sending a huge fireball into the air. Seconds later, shockwaves hit the apartment building, causing panic among the occupants inside. Pictures posted on Chinese media websites showed a cloud of dust towering above buildings near the scene. Residents and workers, some bleeding, could be seen fleeing. Canadian teacher Monica Andrews told the BBC that she awoke in panic after what she thought was an earthquake. "I ... looked out the window and the sky was red ... I just watched a second explosion go off and (it was) just pure chaos, everyone leaving their apartment buildings thinking it's an earthquake, cars trying to leave the complex and ... it was crazy the amount of light that this explosion and fire lit up," she said. Xinhua said the explosions had ripped through a warehouse storing "dangerous goods". The first explosion was equivalent to 3 tonnes of TNT and the second blast 21 tonnes of TNT, it said. Residents in nearby areas said the blasts had shattered windows in buildings, it reported. Citing a local hospital, Xinhua said people had been hurt by broken glass and stones and some were seriously wounded. CCTV said on its website about 100 fire trucks had been sent to the scene. Tianjin is home to around 15 million people, making it one of the biggest cities in China. It is also home to one of the country's biggest ports. Industrial accidents are not uncommon in China following three decades of breakneck economic growth. A blast at an auto parts factory in eastern China killed 75 people a year ago when a room filled with metal dust exploded.

“This is not the right way to express patriotism,” the state-run Xinhua News Agency said Wednesday. The China Daily newspaper called the protests “jingoism that does a disservice to the spirit of devotion to the nation.” The People’s Daily, a mouthpiece for China’s ruling Communist Party, urged calm and “rational patriotism.” http://marygreeley.com/?page_id=32766
