I have stated openly for years that the American media are communist. What I should have said is that although many in media may not be communists outright, they either intentionally or not support advancing the communist narrative, today we finally have a list.
REVEALED: Full List Of Western Media Outlets Participating In Chinese Communist Propaganda Events
"The National Pulse is today publishing a full list of news outlets said to have granted the Chinese Communist Party and its propaganda outlets “favorable coverage” or “positive messages” following an investigation into the China-United States Exchange Foundation and ‘BLJ Worldwide’.
The full list follows a National Pulse exposé on the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF), founded by the Vice-Chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), which has been identified by the U.S.-China Security and Economic Review Commission as a key component of the Chinese Communist Party’s United Work Front.
The effort, according to the U.S. government report, aims to “to co-opt and neutralize sources of potential opposition to the policies and authority of its ruling Chinese Communist Party” and “influence overseas Chinese communities, foreign governments, and other actors to take actions or adopt positions supportive of Beijing’s preferred policies.”
Evidenced through the Department of Justice’s Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) filings, a relationship spanning over a decade between establishment media outlets and CUSEF can be discerned.
With the assistance of BLJ, CUSEF has sponsored trips to China for the following outlets with the explicit goal of “effectively disseminat[ing] positive messages to the media, key influencers, and opinion leaders, and the general public” according to FARA filings.
Dubbed “familiarization trips,” the criteria for participants included “effectiveness and opportunities for favorable coverage” in order to secure “favorable” coverage”
In order to develop favorable coverage in key national media, BLJ will continue to organize and staff “familiarization trips” to China. This includes recruiting top journalists to travel to China, selected for effectiveness and opportunities for favorable coverage.

In addition to CUSEF-sponsored travel, outlets also met with CUSEF officials and the BLJ CEO in various U.S. cities including New York, Washington, D.C., and Chicago. Often times, the meetings were described as “private dinners” in FARA filings.

If what the National Pulse is stating is true, they are one of the few still reporting the truth for what it is and if it is, there is no reason i can think of not to support such media.
I know you aren't really surprised by the list, I know I'm not. It is just good information, if true that helps provide evidence for our thoughts and feelings on the issue. One other thing to consider is if the Communists have affected that many news sources, this means they are also controlling your local news as well.
With all the protesting and rallies going on around the country, I have wondered for years why people won't protest or rally in front of the media where they live? I can tell you I don't think they would ever expect it.
The Media should be ashamed of itself and we should be ashamed in allowing it to continue unopposed. I argue that he Media's "right" to "freedom of the press," is no longer a right when they either agitate to rebellion or at the very least support the restriction of the rights of their base and fellow residents. I argue that the media doesn't have the right to lie, it is a crime.
If censorship is what they want while they believe they are entitled to same rights we are that include freedom of the press, they too should be censored or allowed to be openly circumvented. But as always when the government wants control, it always gives itself rights and rights to those it supports as it denies them from those they claim to serve.
In the eyes of our government, It is no longer about service, its about control and some still say we are free?
