China-US standoff escalates as Beijing expels major US media staff

Source: The Guardian

The decision, announced just after midnight Beijing time, requires US citizens working for the New York Times, Washington Post and Wall Street Journal to halt reporting and hand in their press cards within 10 days, if their credentials expire before the end of 2020.

China usually gives journalists only 12-month visas and press cards, so the measure is likely to impact most correspondents. It will decimate some of the biggest newsrooms in China and force reporters with decades of experience covering the country to leave.

“They will not be allowed to continue working as journalists in the People’s Republic of China, including its Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions,” the ministry of foreign affairs said.

The decision to include Hong Kong in the announcement raised disturbing questions about the city’s autonomy, as it is meant to control its own media accreditation under the “one country, two systems” agreement between the UK and China that succeeded the handover from colonial rule.

1. Trump hates the media

this is dumb because it makes it harder to find out which treatments and policies have worked for patients who recovered in China.

2. Wasn't trade war related.

China said it was responding to a US move last month to tighten controls on Chinese state media organisations, classifying them as foreign missions.
Wise to keep an eye or have some rules on Chinese State media/propaganda agents when they are in the US.

4. From now on, all the news coming out of China will be from the Chinese Government

That is pretty frightening.

7. i dislike china before trump was in office

it will not change regardless...

My relatives in Taiwan calls it Wuhan Pneumonia from the start and it will not change

obviously, the following line is what I like to throw at Five-Maos

I resolutely support China's original virus "Wuhan Pneumonia", oppose theft/name change by America Empire of Chinese intellectual property.

Here is the same line in chinese: 堅決支持中國祖國原創病毒「武漢肺炎」,反對美帝盜用
