This is priceless from CCP mouthpiece, The China Daily:
Probably none of the protagonists were asked but were they really needed to be? Kim Carr is a famous communist. Friendly Jordies has got Murdoch Derangement Syndrome and is blinded by Labor links. Finally, Geoff Raby is paid by Chinese SOE Yancoal to lobby on its behalf, as well as being registered as an agent of foreign influence.
ASPI is the target of the propaganda. It is true that ASPI is funded partly by government and big arms. It is openly pro-US and ANZUS. Certainly, it is not always right. But it’s not always one-eyed, either. ASPI founder, Hugh White, is an oft-quoted and relentless China bull.
In the last few years, ASPI has offered a safe space to various Chinese critics that would otherwise be exposed to CCP coercion. For this, it has been harassed consistently by CCP agents of various kinds.
Nor did ASPI originate many of the worst allegations and evidence unearthed about the Xinjiang internment camps. That came from brave sources all over the global media.
As for comparing Western media censorship to that conducted by the CCP, that is preposterous. Western media has its problems for sure but it is still a moshpit of disagreement and debate, including bloggers and vloggers! China has one heavily policed narrative behind the Great Firewall.
This video is both hilarious and deeply disturbing all at once.
