As a chinese living in china, I have been to many foreign counties. I visited their cities and talking to local people, experience their culture. However, it seems that some foreign media,such as CNN, knowing nothing about China, or they are not even interested in to know the truth. Rather than that, they simply cut the photo and try to misleading the public.They report misleading news to let the public afraid of China. The event happened in Tibet on the 14th of March is a great example.

“I want to make one thing clear because all of the major news outlets are ignoring a very important fact. Yes, the Chinese government bears a huge amount of blame for this situation. But the protests yesterday were NOT peaceful. The original protests from the past few days may have been, but all of the eyewitnesses in this room agree the protesters yesterday went from attacking Chinese police to attacking innocent people very, very quickly. They appeared to target Muslim and Han Chinese individuals and businesses first but many Tibetans were also caught in the crossfire.”

CNN cut the original photo and totally changed the photo’s meaning. The original photo was showing that protests are attack public, throw rocks to the cars. After CNN cut it, it looks like the car is attack protests…..HOW SHAM IT IS!

附:CNN对此事件的回应

CNN声明中写道:“一个叫‘anti-CNN.com’的网站和其他一些地方对于CNN在西藏事件上的报道点名批评。”对于中国网民对CNN将一张图片中“藏独”分子向卡车投掷石块的画面进行剪裁的不满,CNN辩称,“受到质疑的那幅照片被完全‘适当地’应用在了特定的编辑内容中”,并称所展示的内容不会引起误解。

另外,对于在报道中将西藏称为“国家”,CNN说,CNN的报道方针是称西藏为“中国西藏自治区”,“在至今的数十篇关于此事件的报道中,我们只发现了两起被误称为‘国家’的例子”。

这则声明被CNN放在其网站的美国版中并不显眼的位置,以至于几乎没有被其他西方媒体发现。这与其连续数天将西藏事件图片放在醒目位置的做法形成了很大反差。虽然CNN声称“否认所有指控”,但那张被CNN说是“适当”使用的照片已经被悄悄撤下,换成了有“藏独”分子投掷石块的完整版。

对于CNN有关西藏称谓的“澄清”,中国人民大学美国研究中心主任时殷弘表示,CNN犯了一个严重的常识性错误,“西藏是中国领土的一部分,中国公众对CNN称西藏为‘国家’表示强烈不满是完全可以理解的。尽管CNN在声明中不得不接受自己犯了错误的事实,但用的是一种轻描淡写的方式,不痛痛快快地表示。犯了错误就应该认真承认,不要说‘仅仅有两起失误’,就是一起也不行。否则CNN在中国公众和国际社会中的公信度会进一步受到损害。”
