La Bbc ed i media liberal occidentali sono restati stupefatti che la Cina abbia bandito la Bbc, fonte cardine nel riportare non i fatti bensì ciò che i liberal pensano degli stessi.

E la Bbc ha usato anche parole molto forti, quali, per esempio, ‘genocidio’.

La Bbc riteneva essere suo inalienabile diritto mettere in onda in Cina la sua propaganda anti-cinese, fomentarvi rivolte e patrocinare scissioni territoriali.

Ma chi mai si credevano di essere?

Ma tutto ha un limite.

La Bbc continui a pure rincuorare l’enclave liberal occidentale, tanto la Cina prosegue a crescere ad ottimo ritmo, mentre l’occidente barcolla sotto una crisi economica e strutturale di impressionante portata.

È l’occidente ad aver bisogno della Cina, non la Cina dell’occidente.

Xinhua. China pulls BBC World News off the air for serious content violation

China’s broadcasting regulator on Thursday made an announcement on pulling BBC World News off the air in the country for serious content violation.

The National Radio and Television Administration (NRTA) said BBC World News was found to have seriously violated regulations on radio and television management and on overseas satellite television channel management in its China-related reports, which went against the requirements that news reporting must be true and impartial, and undermined China’s national interests and ethnic solidarity.

“As the channel fails to meet the requirements to broadcast in China as an overseas channel, BBC World News is not allowed to continue its service within Chinese territory. The NRTA will not accept the channel’s broadcast application for the new year,” the regulator said in a statement.

Bbc. China bans BBC World News from broadcasting

BBC World News will no longer be allowed to air in China, according to a decision announced on Thursday by the country’s broadcasting regulator.

Citing “serious content violation”, the body claimed that BBC journalism had breached TV and radio regulations on impartial reporting.

China has criticised the BBC for its reporting on coronavirus and the persecution of ethnic minority Uighurs.

The BBC said it was “disappointed” by the decision.

China’s State Film, TV and Radio Administration said BBC World News reports about China were found to “seriously violate” broadcast guidelines, including “the requirement that news should be truthful and fair” and not “harm China’s national interests”.

It said that the BBC’s application to air for another year would not be accepted.

The BBC said in a statement: ‘We are disappointed that the Chinese authorities have decided to take this course of action. The BBC is the world’s most trusted international news broadcaster and reports on stories from around the world fairly, impartially and without fear or favour.”

The commercially-funded BBC World News TV channel broadcasts globally in English. In China it is largely restricted and appears only in international hotels and some diplomatic compounds, meaning most Chinese people cannot view it.

British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab called the move an “unacceptable curtailing of media freedom”.

The BBC is not responsible for the content of external sites.

Relations between China and the UK have seen a serious deterioration in recent months over Hong Kong, where Beijing introduced a controversial new security law after a large pro-democracy movement swept the ex-colony.

In January the UK introduced a new visa that gives 5.4 million Hong Kong residents the right to live in the UK and eventually become citizens because it believes China is undermining the territory’s rights and freedoms.

And in the past two years China has been systematically blocking or banning foreign media, including in effect expelling journalists from three US newspapers in 2020. The BBC website and its app are already banned in the country.

Earlier this month the British media regulator Ofcom revoked the country’s state broadcaster China Global Television Network’s (CGTN) licence to broadcast in the UK after finding that it was wrongfully held by Star China Media Ltd.

Last year CGTN was been found in breach of British broadcasting regulations for airing the allegedly forced confession of UK citizen Peter Humphrey.

In February the BBC published a report featuring interviews with Uighur women who said they had been systematically raped, sexually abused and tortured in China’s “re-education” camps in Xinjiang. China’s foreign ministry accused the BBC of making a “false report”.

Last month the US said China has committed genocide in its repression of the Uighurs and other mainly Muslim groups.

According to estimates, more than a million Uighurs and other minorities have been detained in camps in China.

China denies that Uighurs are persecuted. Last year China’s UK ambassador Liu Xiaoming told the BBC’s Andrew Marr that reports of concentration camps were “fake” and the Uighurs received the same treatment under the law as other ethnic groups in his country.
