The deception by China during the early stages of the Wuhan virus has impacted the readiness of the entire world.
Now, with the Trump administration openly calling out the Chinese, the media has no choice but to cover those comments, which has China once again taking extreme measures to protect its guilt.
On Tuesday, China announced it was expelling journalists from the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post.
Woe Is Me
The battle between China and the United States on this front was escalated by our politicians and the media.
Somewhere along the line, Democrats got the idea calling this the Wuhan Virus, China Virus, or the Chinese Virus was racist.
China jumped on this and soon it became a talking point for China’s state-run media.
It has gotten to the point the Chinese published a book as well as openly making the allegations to the media that United States soldiers spread this disease in China.
China’s Foreign Ministry recently stated the measures to kick out the journalist are “entirely necessary” and “reciprocal countermeasures that China is compelled to take in response to the unreasonable oppression the Chinese media organizations experience in the U.S.
“They are legitimate and justified self-defense in every sense. What the U.S. has done is exclusively targeting Chinese media organizations, and hence driven by a Cold War mentality and ideological bias.”
The Washington Post issued a response to the measure…

After expelling several journalists earlier this year regarding an opinion piece that was less than flattering for the Chinese, the Ministry stated, “The Chinese people do not welcome media that publish racist statements and maliciously attacks China.
“In light of this, China has decided to revoke the press cards of the three Wall Street Journal correspondents in Beijing starting today.”
Even with all of this happening, the media is still trying to make Trump out to be the bad guy here, with woke reporters hitting Trump with Chinese talking points virtually every day.
The virus started in China. The Chinese hid key information about its devastating effect for weeks, if not months, that would have enabled everyone to be better prepared, yet Dems and the media are more worried about it being called a Chinese virus than they are the actions of the Chinese.
