US tightens visa rules for Chinese journalists in retaliatory strike

In March, China expelled journalists from 3 U.S. newspapers, a month after the U.S. said it would treat five Chinese state-run media entities the same as foreign embassies. One day later, Beijing expelled three Wall Street Journal correspondents, two Americans and an Australian. New rules in U.S. announced Friday will limit visas for Chinese reporters to a 90-day period with an option to extend.

Nice. This is pure politics as usual. Meanwhile, 15% of the Americans are unemployed, millions more will lose their health insurance because they are no longer employed, Americans are maxing their credit cards to survive, thousands will lose their homes and cars in the summer. The people with enough money already get further help from the government. Small busnisses will close once the economy reopens because they have exhausted all their money keeping the business afloat so then a large company or conglomerate can easily buy that small business out. CARES Act is a joke. The Chinese government nor the Chinese media can be trusted, but the U.S government undeniably has their dirty hands in this mess. The FBI lies, the CIA lies, other U.S officialslie as do probably most world leaders, they all lie when it is most convenient. Which is why I don't play into this Red vs Blue B.S. Mike Pompeo, a war criminal of the CIA trying to convince us what to believe with no proof just like other CIA intel previously selling us with Iraq having "Weapons of Mass Destruction?" Or James Clapper lying about the NSA surveillance program under the PATRIOT Act? The CARES Act and the PATRIOT Act does absolutely little to nothing for the struggling American poor or middle class. As long as we pick and choose sides over who is right and who is wrong, I don't care everyone is lying to us, the American middle class will lose. Over this period thus far, the richest people and biggest corporations are making more money or are less affected than American families or students. We have lost more privacy rights with all the shady legislature being passed at a state and national level while they keep distracting us with the real issues that still persist since Trump took office. 7 out of 10 Americans were living paycheck to paycheck among other red flags for a healthy middle and prospering middle class.

This could be more deflection but it's about time. Chinese journalists don't investigate, they are told what to report. Foreign journalists in China have far more restrictions than these visa controls
