From The Epoch Times, Tracey Zhu reports about “How the Chinese Communist Party Controls the Media in the Information Age.”
In this era of high technology and globalization, can the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) still control the flow of information within its borders? According to one professor, the answer is yes. Not only does it still infiltrate and manipulate all mass media in post-reform China, the CCP also adopts sophisticated methods to package its propaganda so Chinese people firmly believe what they see.
Guoguang Wu, formerly chief editor of the People’s Daily and currently the Chair of China and Asia-Pacific Relations at University of Victoria, Canada, made the above analysis at a recent three-day conference at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.
