The Washington Post is coming under fire for publishing Chinese propaganda last week, just one day after the launch of another intercontinental ballistic missile by North Korea. The insert in question has long been controversial, yet many people remain unaware that it is bought and paid for by the corrupt Chinese government.

As noted by Ethan Barton of the Daily Caller, the paper’s “China Watch” section failed to mention the launch, which is consistent with its strategy of ignoring big Chinese news stories that paint the country in a negative light and focusing only on positive news. It’s a huge omission as the ICBM that North Korea is claiming it tested has a range believed to be more than 8,100 miles and the ability to strike anywhere in the United States.

Just one article in the insert mentioned China’s stance regarding North Korea, but it only said that Beijing was trying to pressure Pyongyang.

The insert, which is widely considered Chinese communist propaganda and appears regularly in the Post, is prepared by the Chinese government and is labeled an advertising supplement in small print. The Russian government, by the way, also has a similar arrangement with the paper in the form of Russia Beyond the Headlines. These two supplements have also appeared in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times.

China Watch is known for choosing stories that advance the communist party line. In the past, it has published stories saying that the country’s one child policy was beneficial to the people, helping them to come out of poverty and preserve the environment – which is pretty laughable when you consider how widespread pollution is in China.

“Advertising supplement” can be hard to tell apart from legitimate news
