Why we need to ask more questions about China

During a special order series of speeches on Friday, Rep. Louie Gohmert spoke about China's efforts to weaken the United States through the media.

He read from an article, “The ‘United Front’ – How China Has Co-opted The U.S. Media” by Charles “Sam” Faddis.
“Perhaps even more insidious than the obvious efforts of the Confucius Institutes to mold the thinking of both students and professors at institutions of higher learning across the Nation, however, are the direct inroads the Chinese Communist Party has made into the so-called mainstream media in this country. Armed with massive amounts of cash and leveraging the lure of the Chinese market, the CCP has, in essence, bought the voices of much of the ‘free press.’

“‘You often see representatives from American companies with financial ties to China naturally become defenders of the CCP's policies and spreading the CCP's propaganda’…”

“Most of the major American media outlets are owned by parent companies. These companies all have significant business interests inside China. They are dependent on Chinese goodwill and the approval of the Chinese Government to safeguard those interests.
