    China and Russia are pouring billions into slick, English-language channels to spread their official views. It may look ominous but it could also provide a healthy balance to Western bias.

    Big Brother 2.0? - The Globe and Mail

    Beijing, Tehran and Moscow share a deeply held belief that the dominant international media outlets are chronically biased, unwilling or unable to see the world from anything but a Western perspective. The run-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq was a turning point, as CNN, Fox News and other outlets swallowed wholesale George W. Bush and Tony Blair’s argument for ousting Saddam Hussein and cast aspersions on those governments – notably Russia, France and China – that argued against the war.

    :lol: Yup, sure is amazing isn't it. BUT, remember their targeting the USA, people who buy products sold by cartoon characters and have very short political memories! :lol::lol: Too Funny.....

    Political Memories, kind of like opening a box, getting punched in the face, and repeating the same thing over and over with the same box.

    Or how about the Jack-in-the-Box voting syndrome, "To VOTE, rotate crank ONCE"
    Same type of politician pops up each time. :lol:

    Now people in the world have a choice, which they did not have before. And what we hear any news, as they are taught how to reach our ears and eyes - all very important. It is based on the news we decide what is right and wrong. If there are channels other than CNN and the BBC, therefore, the power of American and English-speaking world is weakening. This is really going on.
