PBS Partners with Red China

PBS affiliates partnered with China-backed outlet to air pro-Beijing movie: report

From El Zoro News:

Federally funded PBS affiliates are airing a pro-China documentary produced in conjunction with an outlet controlled by the Chinese Communist government, according to a new report.

The Daily Callerreported Friday that PBS affiliates are airing "Voices from the Frontline: China’s War on Poverty” without disclosing CGTN’s ties to Beijing and that its producer has links to Chinese officials and the government.

According to the Caller, PBS SoCal helped producethe movie, which praises Chinese President Xi Jinping’s anti-poverty initiatives and premieredthis week. Other affiliates will air it in the coming days.

"In the last forty years, China’s economic development has lifted more than 700 people out of poverty,” the intro of the movie reportedly says.

"To President Xi Jinping, ending poverty is his most important task,” the script states.

It’s a report likely to fuel Republican calls for PBS to be defunded -- something that President Trump and many conservatives have backed over aperceived liberal bias.

Readers may remember my American Thinker article where I busted them for posting a pre-prepared statement as a transcript of Obama's state of the union speech - eliminating a gaffe. Contrary to what their defenders tried to argue (and they had to come back and add "as prepared") they listed it as a transcript. It was clearly a con job. A lot of people called for defunding PBS at the time but that movement went nowhere. I fear this won't go anywhere now.

But it should.
