Trump Admin Labels Four More Chinese News Outlets ‘beholden to the CCP’ as Propaganda

The United States State Department released a statement on Monday announcing that four Chinese Communist party-run news outlets now qualify as “foreign missions,” meaning they are “substantially owned or effectively controlled by a foreign government,” State Department Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus said in a statement.

Ortagus also stressed that General Secretary Xi Jinping has increased control over outlets in China throughout his time in office. “The CCP has reorganized China’s state propaganda outlets disguised as news agencies and asserted even more direct control over them,” Ortagus explained. “While Western media are beholden to the truth, PRC media are beholden to the Chinese Communist Party.”

The agencies — China Central Television, China News Service, the People’s Daily, and the Global Times — are receiving the label to increase awareness of their actions in the U.S. and because foreign missions must “adhere to certain administrative requirements that also apply to foreign embassies and consulates in the United States.”

This action stems from power granted by the 1982 Foreign Missions Act which allows the State Department to regulate “the activities of foreign missions in the United States in a manner that will protect the foreign policy and national security interests of the United States.”

The announcement follows a similar declaration in February deeming five other Chinese media outlets as foreign missions.

Relations between the U.S. and China over media outlets have been strained since March 18 when correspondents for the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and the Washington Post lost their credentials and were expelled from China.

Since then, the U.S. and China have faced disputes over COVID-19 reporting and misinformation. And the U.S. has sought to lessen the impact of Communist propaganda to combat the spread of that misinformation.

U.S. Commerce Department: Chinese firms are supplying Russian entities

On Tuesday, the United States Commerce Department said several companies in China are supplying Russia’s military. The announcement was made alongside a “new round of blacklist restrictions for foreign firms aiding Moscow’s war against Ukraine” reports National Review.

“These entities have previously supplied items to Russian entities of concern before February 24, 2022 and continue to contract to supply Russian entity listed and sanctioned parties after Russia’s further invasion of Ukraine,” stated an official Commerce Department notice posted to the Federal Register.

“Commerce also blacklisted several Chinese companies and Chinese government research institutes for their work on naval-technology and supplying Iran with U.S. tech in a way that harms America’s national security” adds National Review.

Six companies that are helping further the Russian invasion are also based in Lithuania, Russia, the U.K., Uzbekistan, and Vietnam.

National Review reports:

The Commerce Department stopped short of blaming the Chinese government for the sanctions-evasion activity it identified today. Commerce secretary Gina Raimondo previously said that there doesn’t appear to be any “systemic efforts by China to go around our export controls.” The Biden administration has publicly and privately warned Beijing against supporting the Russian war, with White House officials even leaking to the press about an effort to present China’s ambassador in Washington with information about Russian troop movements ahead of the invasion.

While Beijing has not expressed outright support for the invasion, it has used its propaganda networks to back Moscow’s narrative. Meanwhile, top Chinese and Russian officials have moved to solidify the “no-limits” partnership they declared in early February. General secretary Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin held a call this month, marking the construction of a new bridge between their two countries, during which they reiterated their support for the burgeoning geopolitical alignment.

National-security adviser Jake Sullivan said last month that the U.S. has no indications that Beijing has provided Russia with military equipment. A Finnish think tank, the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air, estimated on June 12 that Chinese imports of Russian oil since the outset of the conflict have amounted to $13 billion, making China the biggest consumer of the country’s oil exports. Previously, it was Germany. “While Germany cut back on purchases since the start of the war, China’s oil and gas imports from Russia rose in February and remained at a roughly constant level since,” the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission noted.

Official advisor Anton Gerashchenko tweeted incredible video of Ukrainian soldiers sweeping through fields, writing “this is how our fields are de-mined so that farmers can harvest crops.”  On Monday a Russian missile struck a mall in Kremenchuk, Ukraine, where over 1,000 civilians were inside.

“Almost two dozen people were still missing Tuesday one day after a Russian airstrike struck a Ukrainian shopping mall and killed 18 civilians inside…On top of the 18 dead and 21 people missing, Ukrainian Interior Minster Denis Monastyrsky said 59 were injured. Several of the dead were burned beyond recognition” reported the New York Post.
