CCTV FOLLIES 2.13 China has all the answers

Tractors plow fertile fields
Flowers blossom everywhere
Mist hovers over winding rivers and streams...
and a VIP motorcade can be seen mounting the hills

A shy, humble leader emerges from the bushes....

Are they really peaches? They look so big and round. They look like balloons....

The paramount leader has but to point at things, and a thankful nation applauds, clucks, lows and dances.

In other news, the world is not a happy place, as CCTV reporters are quick to point out from the earthquake zone...

The camera crew is skillful, the images are sad, but it's the reason for all this suffering that really gets one angry...

"It's all because of those Western sanctions..."

Unlike the callous West, China cares...

Rescue workers proudly represent China.
In fact, on CCTV you won't see aid workers from anywhere else, though sometimes one or two locals can be detected on the edge of the frame...

China is front and center when it comes to rescue work in Turkey.

Meanwhile, Russia does its thing...

Making the world safe for dictatorship

Already, the skies are turning blue over Ukraine...

A Russian armed rocket, what a sight to behold.

Despite this excellent firepower, the US and UK are spoiling Russia's victorious march into Ukraine.
They provoke conflict and provide weapons to the stubborn country that Russia is trying to sway and win over.
It's so unfair!

Meanwhile, the Russian Foreign Ministry is outraged at US behavior. What gives the US the right to meddle so?

An American journalist has tossed a bone that was quickly and greedily picked up by the commissars in Moscow and Beijing , a bone they just can't let go of.

For 5 days in a row, a controversial but accomplished journalist named Seymour Hersh has been big news on Xinwen Lianbo.

The Nord Stream pipeline no longer delivers gas, but it is certainly producing a lot of hot air.

In other news, the US is a hotbed of dark, grimy criminal undertakings and violence.

Don't go there! (especially Chicago)

And that's the world today, as seen from this studio in peaceful, prosperous, harmonized Beijing.

Zai jian!
