President Xi Jinping stressed that "China and Russia are friendly neighbors connected by shared mountains and rivers." ImageImageImageImage
"Our two countries have consolidated and grown the bilateral relationship on the basis of no-alliance, no-confrontation and not targeting any third party, and set a fine example for developing a new model of major-country relations." ImageImageImageImage
"The visit will produce fruitful results, and inject fresh impetus into the sound and steady growth of China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination for the new era." ImageImageImageImage
"China will work with Russia to uphold true multilateralism, promote a multi-polar world and greater democracy in international relations, and help make global governance more just and equitable." ImageImageImageImage

Li Qiang is the most powerful man in China when Xi is away. He plays the titular role well, pointing at things, thinking deeply for the camera at this museum exhibit. ImageImageImageImage
China can't get enough of its own magnificent revolutionary history ImageImageImageImage
Meanwhile, Xi Jinping's personally penned People's Daily message to Russia is met with wide acclaim and heartfelt appreciation.
A prominent Russian editor says so. ImageImageImageImage
Yes! Xi's message, which touched on his ten years of accomplishment, was truly amazing, says a Russian businesswoman Image
In other news, Germany can't stop talking about Nord Stream (neither can CCTV) ImageImageImageImage
Expert commentators around the world spoke to CCTV about how obvious the US sabotage is. ImageImageImageImage
But no one on TV is talking about how obvious Russia's invasion and laying waste to Ukraine has been for over a year now.

Instead, CCTV just shows pretty pictures of Russian pyrotechnics, while completely ignoring the killing fields and massacres. ImageImageImageImage

Ukraine fights back with help from US and NATO.
"US can't accept any challenge to its hegemony." ImageImageImageImage
But the US is showing signs of crumbling from within ImageImage
With the contagion spreading to Europe ImageImage
Before closing, a quick round up of US news. ImageImageImageImage
And that's the end of our program! Image

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.
