For those who didn’t followed the story between French “Researcher”, Media, CGTN and “Laurène Beaumond”. This is what happened, in my point of view

[ᴀ ᴛʜʀᴇᴀᴅ]
Match 28, CGTN has published an commentary article “My Xinjiang: stopping the tyranny of fake news” from an independent French journalist, under pen name “Laurène Beaumond”…
ɪ - ꜰᴀᴋᴇ ᴊᴏᴜʀɴᴀʟɪꜱᴛ

Match 31 a so-called “policy researcher” (we know what’s it about) found this article and start accusing CGTN for using fake profile and implicitly suggests CGTN’s license should be retracted by @csaudiovisual

In the same time, a fake account has been created, engaged in the conversation and successfully trolled a Chinese reporter engaged in the conversation.

Personally, I don't know who has created this troll account.
In just about 3 hours, the journalist of Le Monde, @nathalieguibert has published their “deep investigation” : When Chinese CGTN invent a French journalist.

This article says how china invent fake profile and run their propaganda.…
This article of “Le Monde” (like all other western reports on China) has spreaded by ALL mainstream media, journalists in every language.

@franceinfo even used that fake account @EsperaAd in their news, suggests (by that image) that account is created by CGTN.
ɪɪ - ᴄʟᴀʀɪꜰɪᴄᴀᴛɪᴏɴ

The next day, CGTN clarified that “Laurène Beaumond” exist well and explained why she want to use the pen name. “Laurène” also stated that she wrote that article and contacted CGTN for publishing.

This article changes nothing. The circle of “researcher” and “media” still mock CGTN and everyone engaged in the conversation who defend “Laurène”.

Until a French media “Le Figaro” finally confirmed the existence of “Laurène”, everything calmed down.…
Several people (include myself) request @antoinebondaz and @lemondefr to issue an excuse for their misinformation and mocking to others.

During that day, no one talked this subject. It's like radio silence.
ɪɪɪ – ᴅᴇɴʏ ᴏꜰ ᴀᴘᴘᴏʟᴏɢɪᴢᴇ

Until today, @AntoineBondaz, @nathalieguibert, @lemondefr and @franceinfo haven’t leave a single world to apologize to CGTN, “Laurène”, and the people they mocked based on their own misinformation.
Instead Bondaz asked twice to invite “Laurène” to interview him (for getting her real identity ?? ).

He finally blocked me while I never used any insult words against him.
Other people may also be blocked but I’ve no idea.
@lemondefr just updated their title, some paragraph, without any announcement or errata.

While the original misinformation has been spreaded by the whole western media.

I don't think those western media will spread this update again -- It never happened.
ɪᴠ – ᴍᴏᴠᴇ ᴏɴ & ꜱʜɪꜰᴛ ʙʟᴀᴍᴇ

Instead of make a public excuse for his misinformation, and to restore constructive talks, Bondaz shifted the subject to the usage of pen name and blame Chinese Embassy for retweeting the announcement of CGTN.
And France 2 (same group of France Info), instead of investigating how a misinformation can be created and spread in 3 hours, Investigated CGTN instead, tells people how dangerous this channel is.
ᴠ – ᴍʏ ᴛʜᴏᴜɢʜᴛꜱ

1: Researchers and Media must have a very close tie, they can coordinate and make an article in 3 hours.

2: I feel pity for "Laurène", although she wants to keep her identity safe, but still identified by the circle of media.
3: The power of MSM propaganda:
Once 1 media report something on China, real or fake, ALL MSM follows.
No one do Fact-Check. In less one day same title has repeated on every media. but once thing changed, no one will to errata.
4: Those researchers and medias has no shame about lies and misinformation. Everything not follows them as “CCP Propaganda”, everyone not follows them as “CCP trolls”.

When concrete evidences prove they were wrong, You get blocked, they keep their lies and move to next subject.
While this is only my thoughts (or guess), for those who work in media and know better the situation, if possible please correct me.

How Youtube censors something they don't want you to see?
For example this video from Uncle Damo debunks how BBC made reports on Xinjiang Cotton:

1/ You will stuck on a black screen. Youtube won't you let to see the content unless you get age confirmed. ImageImage
2/ This is only a debunk video, no violence, no drug, not a single explicit contents. But you just need to confirm you are an adult.

Do you think click the "confirm" button with your birthday filled on your google account is enough?
That will not be called "Censorship"
3/ You have 2 options: One give your credit card information to google while they have nearly all your basic information if you use any of their service especially Gmail. ImageImage
