China to expel American reporters after US curbs its media

BEIJING (AP) — China said Wednesday it will revoke the media credentials of all American journalists at three major U.S. news organizations, in effect expelling them from the country, in response to U.S. restrictions on Chinese state-controlled media.

The foreign ministry said American citizens working for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post with credentials expiring before the end of the year must surrender their press cards within 10 days.

It is the latest in a series of tit-for-tat actions by the two governments as the Trump administration takes a more confrontational stance in dealing with China than his predecessors. The countries remain enmeshed in a trade war despite a recent truce and have traded angry words over the coronavirus pandemic that first emerged in China and has spread worldwide.

“The impact of the U.S. move will not be limited to the field of media, but will create negative overall effects and new uncertainties to the relationship,” the ruling Communist Party’s People’s Daily newspaper said in an editorial following the announcement.

1. America acts stupid.

I had an eye opening conversation today. People in other countries pay way more for stuff because of America being anti-taxation. America causes trouble in other countries. As much as we hear about China and other countries, it is America that acts bad and gets itself uninvited after acting like assholes. Let's be honest with ourselves. Our government is not representing us very well.
