(BOXUN) The protests in Hong Kong in the past few days have not shown signs of stopping. The various circles in Hong Kong have also made many statements about the protests. On the eve of celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the central government seems to have set a deadline for protests in Hong Kong. However, demonstrators in Hong Kong hope that Beijing can talk to them, otherwise they will not yield to the central government.

In public opinion propaganda, economic strategy seems to have been the weakness of the Chinese Communist Party, but relying on its powerful national propaganda machine to declare its own strategy to the world has also achieved some results. Chinese official media has seen many new strategies in dealing with media messages that are different from their own voices.

The protests in Hong Kong have caused many inflection points in the Hong Kong economy, and the downward pressure on the economy has strengthened markedly during the months of the protests. On the contrary, in mainland China, the economic situation is not very good because of the trade war. The price of pork has been rising in the past few months, which has affected the food culture of some Chinese.

At a time when food prices are rising, Beijing’s judgment on the economic situation has also seen different levels of cognitive disagreement. The Chinese government has also introduced a series of policies to stabilize prices for pork prices. Although Beijing did not make more statements about such a situation.

To cope with the fake news of some so-called foreign news media, Chinese official media fabricated evidence to try to prove that their claims were correct. In addition, the Chinese people and the international community have changed their understanding of the protests in Hong Kong through the way some foreigners have appeared. A foreigner often appears on the WeChat public account of the Chinese official media Xinhua News Agency to report on what happened in China. During the protests in Hong Kong, the Xinhua News Agency used the self-media blogger “hot pot” that was previously on YouTube to confirm that the New York Times’ report was wrong and false news. However, the New York Times did not respond to this.

Obviously, the Xinhua News Agency’s release is a biased report using the foreigner’s words. Such a situation is also very common in other media.

The Chinese media seems to have learned how to use the loopholes in foreign news media to provide more evidence for their position. Of course, in the relatively closed environment of information in mainland China, people’s emotions naturally become one of the ways of media use. This has caused the media to say what the people believe in.








为应付一些所谓外国新闻媒体的假新闻,中国官媒捏造证据,试图证实自己的说法是正确的。除此之外也通过一些外国人现身说法的方式改变中国民众和国际社会对于香港抗议活动的认识。中国官媒新华社的微信公众号上经常会出现一位外国人的身影,来 报道中国发生的一切。在香港抗议活动期间,新华社又利用之前在youtube上很火的自媒体博主“火锅”来证实纽约时报的报道是错误的,是虚假新闻。然而纽约时报对此并没有进行回应。
