China asked by EU to reverse ban on BBC World News channel

China has been asked by the European Union to reverse its ban on the BBC World News television channel. The ban by China has reportedly been imposed as retaliation for Britain’s pulling of the license of state-owned Chinese broadcaster CGTN. Beijing’s move further restricted ’freedom of expression and access to information inside its borders,’ the EU said.

How is this any of the EU's business? I don't agree with the reason for banning the network but as a sovereign nation they can ban foreign media.

CGTN was pulled because UK law states foreign news corporations should not have ties to political parties. CGTN broke the law by being affiliated with the CCP. BBC world news being pulled is tit-for-tat. A childish stroppy move.

While it is generally hard to support China. In this instance it is tit-for-tat. The British pulled a Chinese state news channel so the Chinese pulled a British state news channel. The BBC admits itself that BBC World is a form of soft power and influence. Therefore it is no different than what the Chinese wanted to do with their news channel in the UK.

The EU now realizes sucking up to China to make money will bite them back. You sold out your morales, values, and nations to make xinese-money.

The BBC might not be the arbitrator of truth but compared to China's state TV it's literally a portal to reality for the Chinese people.
