Information War: China Influences American COVID-19 Conversation With Disinformation

With headlines like these one must wonder if the American mainstream media is getting talking points straight from the Chinese Communist Party.

Hu Xijin writes for the GlobalTimes, which is a Chinese state controlled media outlet dedicated to propagating pro-Chinese narratives throughout the world.

The Chinese are bold and arrogant with their propaganda. The COVID-19 virus originated in Wuhan, China. The Chinese propagandists have even gone so far as to suggest the US military brought the virus into China to destroy the Chinese economy… An entirely baseless claim.

While the propaganda arm of the CCP works overtime spreading disinformation all across social media, their foreign ministry spokesperson claims “We have no time nor interest in any kind of disinformation campaign.”

While many countries overtake China in both numbers of confirmed cases as well as deaths from the novel Corona Virus, China desperately spreads disinformation all over social media in an attempt to gain the upper hand in the 21st century information war.

Throughout all of the confusion, even Communist Chinese CGTN reported many cases of CoronaVirus originating from citizens of Wuhan, confirming that the virus originated in Wuhan and was exported internationally.
