That was called collusion to elect Trump. Now we find out china is paying millions to the new york times and washington post to run advertisements as news stories. Trump is right again, the fake stream media is the enemy of the people.
A Chinese propaganda outlet paid millions of dollars to The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal to run advertisements made to look like news reports.
New documents filed with the U.S. Department of Justice show China Daily paid over $4.6 million to the Post and nearly $6 million to the Journal since November 2016.
China Daily, an English-language newspaper, is overseen by the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) Publicity Department, the governmental agency in charge of disseminating propaganda.
Over the past few years, it has spent millions running supplements - called “China Watch” - containing propaganda disguised as news, in major U.S. newspapers including the Journal, The New York Times, and the Post.
Scholars researching Chinese influence activities in the United States said in a 2018 report (pdf) that “it’s hard to tell that China Watch’s material is an ad.”
China Daily has in the past submitted financial information under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) but the new filing (pdf) is the first to include a breakdown of how much the propaganda outlet is paying American media outlets.
Inquiries sent to the Post and the Journal weren’t returned.

And did you ever notice how people that are the ones that complain the loudest about corporations always seem to prefer the news from large corporations.
