China Censored Virus Narrative
Sourcing a New York Times expose, China Uncensored is reporting how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) purposely issued censorship directives for the coronavirus pandemic. The Times, who published the article in a joint effort with ProPublica, obtained 32,000 directives and 1,800 memos from a group of hackers known as CCP Unmasked, revealing how the Chinese regime wrote a false narrative around the coronavirus, shaping public opinion both domestically and internationally.
The directives and memos reveal how the CCP especially targeted the internet, downplaying the danger of the coronavirus with paid online commentators, who worked for the state, and controlled the narrative using state-of-the-art technology. Chris Chappell and Shelley Zhang bring us more details.ARVE Error: need id and provider
