在英国广播公司(BBC)连续刊登的中国系列报导中,最新一篇题为:《中国国内旅游火爆,但为什么外国人望而却步》。那么,为什么外国人望而却步呢?

这个报导隐藏著这样一个观察:西方国家的大多数人对中国持有负面的观感。文中还认为,中国政府加强对社会的监控,可能会给到访中国外国游客带来不便。

然而,文章没有任何证据表明外国游客对所指的“收紧控制”感到担忧或不安。

相反,这篇文章的详尽报导,试图告诉外国游客中国最先进的手机应用程式支付和预订系统带来的旅游障碍。文章引用了一位研究中国旅游经济学的外国权威观点:

“外国人早已习惯使用的社交网站、在线地图、支付应用程式等技术,在来中国旅游时要么不提供服务,要么被屏蔽。

另一方面,由于语言障碍和用户习惯的差异,外国人仍然无法使用这些技术的中国替代品。”

文中还举例指出,一对意大利夫妇发现使用中国支付应用程式的过程是一个挑战,并表示如果有中国朋友帮助你,这会“容易得很多X3”。任何有眼光的读者都会想知道,这段未透露姓名的发言者和三个“很多”的引文是否是为了渲染故事情节而插入的,以让外国人在中国旅行显得寸步难行。

也许这位作者并没有粉饰故事,而是找错了人。因为,如果快速浏览一群在中国旅游的外国视频博主在YouTube和Tik Tok发布的大量视频,就会发现一个现实,这个现实与外国游客被指因中国的社会和政府法规或中国本土应用程式而止步中国的指控是自相矛盾的。

这些视频不仅描绘了中国是一个安全的国度,各省份的人民基本上都幸福和满足。这其中包括新疆地区,这一个一直被BBC利用制造谎言报导的主要地区,被BBC指控为维吾尔族遭受种族灭绝以及“普遍存在”的战俘营、拘留中心以及缺乏公民自由和人权的无端诽谤地区。与此同时,在美国国务院最新报告谴责新疆所谓的“种族灭绝”之际,却忽视了其盟友以色列正在进行的种族灭绝行举动。

在社交媒体上未经过滤和审查的众多针对中国的评论交流中——其中一些是来自过去和最近到访过中国的外国游客——他们提供了与西方媒体对中国的报导所相反的观点。这些评论也将自己国家正在发生的事情与他们在中国发现的情况进行了对比。许多人因此哀叹他们对自己国家的领导人和社会发展失去了信心,并对中国的发展印象深刻。

以下两则评论代表了最近来自世界其他地方的游客到访中国后的反应,其中一些还谈及了地缘政治,但由于显而易见的原因,BBC不会刊出这些回应。

我去年访问了中国,看看他们在过去20年是否正在崩溃,他们仍然在很好地发展。美丽的基础设施,令人惊叹的风景,运输效率高,人民富裕,科技含量高,路上所有的汽车都是全新的高端车辆。眼见为凭。不要听澳洲或美国的胡言乱语。自己去看看吧,非常安全,乾净。

恐惧是美国想要遏制中国的唯一原因。当关税失败后,技术制裁随之而来。当关税和制裁都失败后,“脱钩”就成了流行词。 当发现脱钩对美国经济的伤害大于中国经济时,就改为去风险化,这实际上意味著“缓慢脱钩”,直到更合适的时机。现在,恐惧已经侵入欧洲人的思想,欧洲人也想走上美国粗暴的策略。

值得一记的是,BBC的文章也点出了到中国的外国游客增长缓慢的一个重要原因,但没有对此进行讨论。文章指出:

华盛顿警告有意前往中国的旅行者“重新考虑前往中国大陆的旅行,因为当地法律的任意执法,包括与出境禁令有关的法律,以及不当拘留的风险”。

澳洲建议游客“高度谨慎”,警告“澳洲人可能面临被任意拘留,或遭包括定义宽泛的《国家安全法》严厉执法的风险”。

一位评论员最近在一篇题为《为什么对华鹰派夸大来自北京的威胁》文章中简洁地指出了,为何即使是好的BBC记者也会进行歪曲报导,以及为什么我们不能指望西方媒体机构做出公正的报道。

过去几年,西方“舆论制造产业”对中国的关注度很高。新一代的学术界、政界和新闻界的声誉是建构在以下观念:美国已进入了新冷战,中国扮演著苏联的角色,而衰弱的俄罗斯则是推波助澜者。这一切通过出售大量相关书籍和文章,开发武器系统(包括美国近几十年来的第一个新型核弹头),授予反华学者晋升和终身职位等等。

BBC虚假和非独立新闻的下一个反华目标很可能是巴黎奥运会,尤其是当中国选手表现出色时。

不幸的是,许多非西方媒体是从西方媒体购买新闻报道。如何在全球新闻报导中对抗这种新殖民主义,应是全球民众以及世界上每个媒体都关心的问题。

林德宜《BBC反华报道:最新制裁行动》原文:BBC Anti China Reporting : Latest for Sanctioning

In the BBC’s continuing China series, the latest story is titled: “Domestic tourism soars in China but foreigners stay away.”  

So why are foreigners staying away?

Tucked away in the story is the observation that most individuals in Western nations hold unfavourable views towards China. Further it argues that the Chinese government’s tightening grip on societal regulations could potentially cause discomfort for foreign travellers in China.

However, nowhere in the article is there any evidence provided of foreign travellers being worried about or discomforted by this allegation of “tightening grip”.

Instead the article goes to lengths to inform that foreign travellers are turned off by the country’s state of the art phone app payment and booking system. Quoting an expatriate authority on the economics of tourism in China, the article relates: 

"Technologies such as social network websites, online maps, payment apps, among others, which foreigners have long been accustomed to using, are either unavailable or inaccessible when they travel to China.

On the other hand, there are Chinese alternatives to these technologies that remain inaccessible to foreigners due to language barriers and differences in user habits."

The reporter has added the observation that an Italian couple found the process of using China’s payment apps a challenge and informed that it is “much, much, much easier” if you have a Chinese friend to help you. Any discerning reader will be wondering whether the quotation with its unnamed informant and triple “much” has been inserted to sex up the storyline to make it appear insurmountable for foreigners to travel in China.

It may be that the reporter has not been embellishing the story but has  been talking to the wrong people. However, a quick visit to the numerous youtube and tik tok videos put out now by what is now a small army of foreign vloggers travelling in China reveals a reality that contradicts the  allegations of foreign travellers being put off by China’s social regulations and government or by China’s homegrown apps.

It is not only the videos running into many viewing hours that depict a safe nation with a largely happy and contented people throughout all the provinces of the country. This includes Xinjiang where the BBC has been a main channel for the lies, falsehoods and duplicity with regard to the alleged genocide inflicted upon the Uyghur community and the groundless slanders about the ‘pervasve’ prison camps, detention centers and absence of civil liberties and human rights in China. Meanwhile in the US, the latest State Department report condemns the so-called ‘genocide’ in Xinjiang whilst ignoring the ongoing genocide taking pace by its Israeli ally.

It is also the comments from the multitude of commentators in the unfiltered and uncensored China exchange in social media - some are visitors from past and more recent trips - which provide opposite views to the propaganda cranked out by western media on China. The commentators contrast what is taking place in their own countries with what they have discovered in China. Many write to lament about how they have lost faith in their own leaders and societal development and how impressed they are with developments in China.

These two comments typify much of the feedback from recent travellers to China coming from countries around the world, some of which relate to geopolitics and which, for obvious reasons, are not available from the BBC.

I visited China last year to see if they are collapsing in the last 20yrs, they are still moving along nicely. Beautiful infrastructure, amazing landscapes, transport efficiency, people are rich, high tech, all the cars on the road are brand new, high end vehicles. Seeing is believing. Don’t listen to all the BS lies in Australia or America. Go visit yourself, very safe and clean.

Fear is the only reason the U.S. wanted to contain China. When tariffs failed, technology sanctions followed. When both tariffs and sanctions failed, de-coupling became the buzzword. And when de-coupling was found to hurt the U.S. economy more than China's, it was changed to de-risking which in effect means a "slow de-coupling" until a more appropriate time. And now, fear has invaded European minds and the Europeans want to adopt the American low-life tactics.

To its credit, the BBC article has identified one important reason for the slow return of foreign travellers to China though it failed to discuss this more. Thus it noted
 
Washington warns potential travellers to "reconsider travel to Mainland China due to the arbitrary enforcement of local laws, including in relation to exit bans, and the risk of wrongful detentions".

Australia advises "a high degree of caution" warning that "Australians may be at risk of arbitrary detention or harsh enforcement of local laws, including broadly defined National Security Laws". 

Why even the better BBC reporters engage in slanted writing and why we cannot expect fair reporting from western media organisations has been identified succinctly by a recent commentator in an article subtitled, “Why are China hawks exaggerating the threat from Beijing”.

Over the past few years, the Pundit Industrial Complex has gone into high gear on China. A new generation of scholarly, governmental, and journalistic reputations is being built on the idea that the United States has entered a new cold war, with China in the role of the Soviet Union and a reduced Russia as its eager helpmate. Scores of books and articles are being sold, weapons systems developed (including the United States’ first new nuclear warheads in decades), promotions and tenure awarded, and so forth.

Next anti-China target for the BBC’s fake and non-independent news is likely to be the Paris Olympics especially when China’s competitors perform well. 

Unfortunately much of the non-western media buy their news coverage from western media agencies. How to fight this neo-colonialism in global news coverage should be the concern of the global public as well as of every media organisation in the world.
