CCTV FOLLIES 1.31 Xi's laser-like focus
-Xi takes lead in China's laser-tech
-Scientists still talking about the Chairman
-Xi's thumbprints, footprints everywhere
-Dmitry Peskov says US to blame
-Brazil's Lula not interested in helping Ukraine
-US economy in tailspin
Did you ever wonder about the secrets of the universe?
Wonder about what makes rockets go into space?
Wonder no more. It's all powered by the source of China's secret sauce.

Xi's erudition, no, let's come right out and say it, his galaxy brain, it's like, it's out of this world.
Einstein has nothing on him, and Einstein didn't grow up in a cave. The naturally brilliant Chairman merely has to point his finger and the nation's top scientists blindly follow.
What's that thing over there? A flashlight?
Yes, Chairman. No, chairman,That, uh, Mr, ah, Chairman, as we've been trying to explain, that is a laser...
The words of the Chairman, so profound. A wake up call that really woke us up and got us on the right path.
Applause and plaudits wherever Xi goes...
A charismatic mentor for men and women of science...
Don't let his humble, folksy charm fool you, he's whip-smart, as sharp as a laser.
And China's young scientists can't get enough of it.
"As the Chairman says...."
With scientists following Xi's lead, it's hard to see how China's rational development can go wrong.
-What's this little thing?
-That? That sir, that is a....
-Anyone see my contact lens?
"I'm so proud to report back to the Chairman...
mission accomplished!"
What's more, with the Chairman as China's navigator, cars need no drivers. Under Xi, computational brain power is blossoming on every possible front.
But the top story today is about a letter.

The Chairman graciously responded to a letter written by Hungarian students who wished him a happy Chinese New Year.

And we're gonna read that laser-sharp diplomatic demarche letter out loud on TV:
"Chairman Xi emphasized that both China and Hungary have a long history and a splendid culture, and people of the two countries enjoy a traditional friendship and increasingly close cultural exchanges."

Wow. Can you feel the burn?
In other news, the Chairman exhorts engineers to build better cities with this gem in mind:

"Open with a good round, put your best foot forward"
For news on Ukraine, we turn to the Kremlin...
Russian attack helicopters own the skies of Ukraine. The awesome firepower speaks for itself.
Facing an upright military like this, why would anyone want to resist?
Russia's got the guns, it's got the leadership, it's got the tacit backing of China, and Hungary, and maybe even Croatia.
Why not just roll over and give up now?
CCTV's obligatory "fair and balanced" coverage includes this amazing shot of Ukraine's military struggling in the mud and snow.

Those felled tree branches do nothing to camouflage the iced up tank.
So why hasn't Russia won yet?
It's so unfair!
Dmitry Peskov, Putin's spokesman, says the US is prolonging the pain.
Standing on principal, Russia strongly opposes other countries helping Ukraine.
Zoran Milanović, the illustrious president of Croatia wholeheartedly agrees:
"It's so immoral! Look at the all the support NATO and other countries are giving to Ukraine!"
In another boost for Xi's long-game diplomatic offensive to shore up a Russo-Chinese friendship without limits, Brazil President Lula says he has no interest in helping Ukraine.
Comfort women in the Philippines protest Japan's intransigence on historical restitution.
The economies of US, UK and EU are all on a strong downward trend
Even Americans agree, according to this NBC poll.
72% say the US economy is getting worse, and 45% say things are going in the wrong direction.
And that's today's news. Make sure to follow us online and watch CCTV video product on your mobile apps.

Patrick Chovanec, a consultant at Silvercrest Asset Mgmt has done some China virtue-signaling by compiling photos about the 1989 Tiananmen demonstrations, an event he evidently knows little about.
(a thread) Image
To do this, he compiled over a dozen of my photos on his blog , and when I brought this to his attention, he made no effort to credit the photos or reveal where he got them from.
Some of the photos now have a life of their own on the internet, including the above photo, (caption by Chovanec) which has been used by conspiratorial pro-China bloggers as proof of a "color revolution."

China state TV doubles down on dubious Russia claims about "secret" US bio-labs in Ukraine.
(from May 26 Xinwen Lianbo) Image
Anchor Li Zimeng couches the accusations in the language of Russia's Defense Ministry, but the CCTV editors like the story enough for it to get major airtime. Image
The Russia Defense Ministry, solid architectural monolith that it is, is portrayed as a presumably authoritative source. Image

CCTV FOLLIES 4.1 The April Fools news is real

Read all about it! Top of the news! Yet another much-heralded publication by the indefatigable freelance writer Xi Jinping, whose excessive narcissism is nicely balanced with pictures of himself.
Up next, a nostalgic look back to 2017 when this man was laying the foundation of today's greatness.
Among many, many other incredible, almost super-human accomplishments, he created a city out of dust.
