China is getting better at influencing media outside China

    QZ.com: China doesn’t just exert heavy control over state media; its influence over media outlets outside China is expanding, according to a new report by Freedom House . . . Perhaps most remarkable is that the traditionally critical Chinese-language press outside the mainland are starting to fall in line. The report notes that in Hong Kong, influential newspapers like the Ming Pao Daily, Sing Tao Daily and Sing Pao are now controlled by tycoons with core business interests on the mainland and who have close ties to officials.

    Persecution.org: Some have suggested that the investigating officer may have neglected to question eyewitnesses at the crime site, as witnesses there at that time did not disclose information to police, said Tehmina Arora, an attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom-India, who appeared for the accused at the Supreme Court for their bail application. “It’s hard to understand why those who were eyewitnesses to such a tragic event failed to disclose the same to the police,” she told Morning Star News. “The reliance placed on certain witnesses by the court seems unjustifiable and based on assumptions and presumptions. Furthermore, in spite of little evidence of the same, the court has made very strong and unwarranted statements against the seven Christians.”
