Chinese Propaganda Has Infected Daily Mail’s Coronavirus Coverage - dailycaller.com

Excerpts from article:

...A Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found that the Daily Mail struck a content-sharing partnership in 2015 with People's Daily, the Chinese communist party's propaganda mill.

...The Daily Mail, the popular British tabloid widely read in the United States, has published dozens of articles in recent months about coronavirus that were based on stories originating from People's Daily, the communist party's official newspaper, and other Chinese propaganda mills.

...A Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found that the Daily Mail has published thousands of articles in recent years as part of a content-sharing agreement with People's Daily.

..."The problem is, how do we know if we can trust their numbers or not? All we know is that they'd lied about their numbers before," a national security and foreign policy expert at Heritage Foundation, James Jay Carafano, told the DCNF. The Daily Mail has published multiple other stories spouting the Chinese government line that other nations are sending new coronavirus cases back to China.

...Not all of the Daily Mail's coronavirus coverage has put the Chinese government in a positive light, and its stories often note that People's Daily and China News are affiliated with the Chinese government.
