The arrogance from some media and some reporters

I attended a Committee of 100 panel where a 25 year (?) veteran, Washington Post Associate Editor and Columnist David Ignatius shared his perspective on reports covering China. Just shared several of his responses.

  1. When asked why Gordon Chang with no credibility(The author of The-Coming-Collapse-of-China, forever) can consistently gain top focus and prime coverage on the main media,  Mr. Ignatius first pretended that he never heard that Gordon Chang ( that is a lie, right?). Then after asked by the host whether there was a bias from the media, he murmured he did not know.
  2. Then the panel host George Koo asked David why so much negativity covered by US media on China, instead the 2017 C-100 survey found out that the US general public had a favorable view on China than what the reporters and media had?

Mr. Ignatius said he did not care about others point of view  and he just wanted to report what he was interested in and what he cared.  And that was he was taught about what a true journalism was. (literally the exact word of his answer)

I found an article on Forbes.com titled: “‘Fake News’ And How The Washington Post Rewrote Its Story On Russian Hacking Of The Power Grid”,  https://www.forbes.com/sites/kalevleetaru/2017/01/01/fake-news-and-how-the-washington-post-rewrote-its-story-on-russian-hacking-of-the-power-grid/#5451b9f87ad5
