Lian Yue: They Really Are Ignorant
Lian Yue, a prominent blogger and citizen journalist, offers this insight into human rights in the U.S. and China:
Lian Yue: The U.S. State Department’s Human Rights Report indicated that China is an “autocratic country” and that its human rights situation is “extremely bad.” They really are ignorant. Over the years, under the efforts of the People’s Daily, the Beijiing Daily, the Global Times and CCTV, China’s human rights have long been five times better than America’s.
China typically balks at the Human Rights Report, publishing its own reports on human rights abuses in the U.S. People’s Daily published an article on May 29 titled “The U.S. Human Rights Report is Full of False Data and Distorted Views.” But Lian suggests that China’s human rights are sterling only in the world of state-controlled media.
