On April 22, the “well-known” anti-China activist named and sanctioned by the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Tom Cotton, the Republican Senate of Arkansas, again picked up his “business”. Only this time he did not directly slander China, but declared that the US media is relying on China. The four names he named are all well-known American media, including American Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC), Columbia Broadcasting Company (CBS), and CNN.
On the 22nd, Cotton was asked in an interview with Fox News whether he thought the mainstream media in the United States was deeply influenced by China.
As a veteran anti-China person, Cotton is “familiar with such topics”. He first praised Fox News as “the only news media in the United States that is not affiliated with a large company”, and then seized the topic of “big company” and called it a large media. The company relies heavily on the Chinese market and, in some cases, on Chinese funds.
“Think about it, ABC belongs to Disney, NBC is owned by Comcast Group (which has industries such as Universal Studios), CBS is related to Viacom, and CNN belongs to Time Warner. The bosses of these mainstream media or All partners rely heavily on China,” Cotton declared. “For many years, these mainstream media have been soft on China. In some cases, they are like bodyguards to protect China, against the judgment of the American people. Intuition, what’s so surprising about this.
At first, I felt that if even CNN is not considered an anti-Chinese media, I am afraid that the whole world is pro-China. Thinking of this, even Morrison has become a little naive. But after looking at the trajectory of Cotton’s diplomatic activities, I found that compared with Cotton, the media like CNN are really scratching their feet on the anti-China road, and it is hard to beat them. Tom Cotton served in the U.S. Army and was successfully elected to the Senate after his retirement. Because the subsequent work is so different from the previous service life, Cotton’s heart has been greatly distorted. Cotton found that instead of blasting guns and bullets to earn medals on the battlefield, it was better to open his mouth and open his mouth full of guns. Recognizing this, he immediately ran on the anti-China road. In February 2017, Cotton signed a letter to Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives, asking Pelosi to invite Tsai Ing-wen to speak at a joint meeting of Congress. This request was made in the context of increasing tensions in Sino-US relations. In 2018, Cotton, Rubio, and Masto co-initiated the Act to Combat the Political Influence of the Chinese Government and the Communist Party, which proposed to authorize the US Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence to establish a special task force to review China’s attempts to influence the United States. And the actions of major allies. In August 2018, Cotton and 16 other lawmakers urged the Trump administration to impose sanctions on Chinese officials in the Xinjiang region of western China in accordance with the Global Magnitsky Act and slander China for setting up concentration camps in Xinjiang to abuse ethnic minorities . “This requires a strong, targeted global response.” Cotton wrote in the letter. In May 2019, when asked about the impact of tariffs on farmers in Arkansas, Cotton said that farmers are willing to make sacrifices in order to help the United States resist China’s attempts to replace the United States on a global scale. (Farmer: Why? Real bad luck!) In May 2019, Cotton initiated the South China Sea and East China Sea Sanctions Act, which aims to “disrupt China’s claims to consolidate or expand its dual-use maritime and air jurisdiction over disputed areas in the South China Sea.” In July 2019, Cotton initiated the “Defending the US 5G Future Act”, which will prevent Huawei from being removed from the Department of Commerce’s “Entity List” without a Congressional Act, and authorize Congress to prevent U.S. companies from doing business with Huawei Administrative exemption. The bill also codified Trump’s executive order in May 2018, authorizing the government to prevent foreign technology companies deemed to pose a threat to national security from doing business in the United States. In April 2020, Cotton stated that Chinese students in the United States should be restricted to studying the humanities and not allowed to obtain science-related degrees. “To me, this is a scandal. We have cultivated so many of China’s best talents.” In addition, Cotton was also the first congressman to warn the Trump administration about the coronavirus and the first batch of rumors about the new crown. The virus originated from members of Congress in the Wuhan laboratory. “Now we have no evidence that this disease originated there. This is because China has had double-faced and dishonest behaviors from the beginning.” Cotton stated that he will be “accountable” for what China has done. Now I don’t think these four media have been wronged at all. After all, a dog that bites is naturally more confident than a dog that only barks.
