Xi Jinping Commands China to Improve Global Propaganda

Chinese dictator Xi Jinping commanded the Communist Party Politburo this week to enhance its global propaganda initiatives, the state-run Xinhua News Agency reported on Tuesday.
The Chinese state already boasts a formidable stable of government propaganda outlets, of which Xinhua is its main newswire service. Other media outlets include the People’s Daily, the official newspaper of the Communist Party; China Daily, which publishes English-language propaganda targeting mainstream Western audiences; and the Global Times, which publishes more strident anti-American propaganda than China Daily. China’s Foreign Ministry spokespeople and hired propagandists also maintain a visible presence on Western social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, though the regime bans the general Chinese population from using them.
China amplifies the messages of its propaganda outlets through cooperation initiatives or information sharing with outlets deemed largely legitimate in the West, such as Bloomberg, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and CNN.
Xi told the Politburo during a meeting on Monday that Beijing needed to expand “the country’s capacity for engaging in international communication to present a true, multi-dimensional and panoramic view of China,” Xinhua relayed.
“Xi stressed the need to have a profound understanding of how important and necessary it is to improve the country’s international communication, and to develop a voice in international discourse that matches with China’s comprehensive national strength and international status,” Xinhua paraphrased..

The man responsible for steering U.S. government funding to the Wuhan Institution of Virology thanked Dr. Anthony Fauci for publicly dismissing the theory coronavirus may have leaked from the lab.
Peter Daszak (pictured), the president of the EcoHealth Alliance, sent Fauci an email on April 18th, thanking him for steering the public toward the natural bat-to-human theory for coronavirus origin.
“I just wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of our staff and collaborators, for publicly standing up and stating that the scientific evidence supports a natural origin for COVID-19 from a bat-to-human spillover, not a lab release from the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” Daszak wrote to Fauci on April 18, 2020.
Less than 12 months later Daszak would be in Wuhan personally leading a World Health Organization (W.H.O.) team charged with investigating the theory of an accidental laboratory leak being behind COVID-19’s origination, as Breitbart News reported.
He told CBS’s Lesley Stahl soon after there was “no evidence” to back the theory that a leak led to the virus...
Rubio: Social Media Crackdowns on Lab Leak Theory Were Basically China Controlling American Speech
By Ian Hanchett, Breitbart News
On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Radio’s “Fox Across America,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) stated that social media companies cracking down on the promotion of the lab leak theory on the origin of COVID-19 is the Chinese government controlling what Americans can say and China controlling American speech is “already happening.”
Host Jimmy Failla asked, “[W]hen you saw things like crackdowns on social media over whether or not we could discuss this Wuhan lab theory, in essence, is that not the Chinese government controlling what we can and can’t say in this country from afar?”
Rubio responded, “Yeah, absolutely it is...
