    Does not come as a surprise. China's actions today imitates Nazi-Germany's of the 20th century. China is the biggest threat to democracies around the world, and with the US having a transactional president (who respects Xi), this threat will only go north. For democracies to survive the onslaught of China's imperial ambitions, a long term strategy is needed, where like-minded countries join forces and device tactics to clip China's wings of authoritarianism. What China needs today urgently is what we've already got. Multi-party democracy, freedom, rule of law, amongst a variety of other things.

    Article makes the point that the biggest threat to the CCP is a free press.

    What this forray into media is going to do is temper the anti-China sentiment going around which is bad for business.

    Article also goes on to say a lot of money is being invested but if it doesn't get watched to the extent other publications attract then its long term intent will be muted.

    Whether China will follow the same path as Russian media and not be any better or they do something different and try to get into the league of Al Jazeera which has been going over twenty years now.

    Early days.
