China pressured EU to block report of COVID-19 disinformation

As per reports, China sought to block a EU report alleging that Beijing was spreading disinformation about the COVID-19 outbreak. The report was eventually released, albeit with some criticism of the Chinese government rearranged or removed. The report had initially been slated for release on April 21, but was delayed after Chinese officials picked up on a news report that previewed its findings.

Of course they did! Authoritarian regimes do not appreciate being made to look “wrong” about anything. They always try to project strength and infallibility, even if they have to lie. America is well on it’s way to becoming just like china.

Sounds like standard diplomatic wrangling. There is plenty to blame China for but this is so low tier status quo it is hard to get riled over.

Are any EU supporters now learning why one top government ruling over so much of the "free" world can be such a threat?

Hey penny, you plagiarized from The NY Times article. It’s obvious you took sentences and phrases and are claiming them as your own.

China is an issue that both the left and the right can come together on. We needs to stand up for our supply chain, our own businesses abroad, and the interest of our citizens over China's money.

These are all western media groups and some of their headlines explicitly side with China. Not even saying it's a claim of disinformation but just flat out calling it disinformation. That's kinda horrific. There really is no way to trust any MSM at this point

What a bizarre article, this is essentially the EU claiming that China is lieing so China called the EU to protest being called liers.

The disparate political world views and complex vested interests of EU states prevent it from showing unity, solidarity or acting with resolve in a crisis. EU responses as far back as Bosnia to the present day immigration problem evidence that this collection of Nation States should never have ventured beyond a Free Trade Agreement.

Surprise, surprise. I am sure many more things are going to come out of the woodworks as this goes on. The WHO has completely lost credibility with the rest of the world and is potentially in the CCPs pocket regardless of the amount of funding they provide.

A more brief summary would be: China did the obvious, moronic globalist EU followed through.
