Since at least 2018, content branded “China Focus” has appeared inside the print edition of The Economist, a respected publication with a global reach.
This content comes straight from the Beijing Review, a propaganda outlet controlled by the Chinese Communist Party. The Beijing review has praised “democratic” rule in occupied Tibet, promoted the CCP’s handling of the coronavirus crisis and covered up prison camps where some two million Uyghurs are detained.
The paid content in these supplements is nothing less than a deliberate attempt by the CCP to promote itself to an international audience, and deflect attention from its human rights abuses.
Let’s say NO to the spread of CCP propaganda. Contact the editors of The Economist, urging them to take action.
