Chinese Media Censorship VS. American Media Censorship

If you have lived in China for a while, you will notice that its media is heavy-handedly censored by the government. Media Censorship in China proves to be very annoying at times. Commercials during children’s programs do not advertise the latest toys but run government programs on civic duties to society and individual morals, responsibilities, and ethics.

There is certainly a lack of diversity of local programs. Most of them mainly promote family values, societal ethics, fighting corruption, and patriotic responsibilities to building a prejudice-free, harmonious society. Oh yeah, and Kungfu.

You actually can get some Western TV series, such as “Sex and the City” or “Desperate Housewives” here, on China’s Central Television program (CCTV). But this effort is useless because after the censorship runs through its editing and take out everything that’s “lacking in family and ethnic-unity values” (e.g. sex, promiscuity, racial stereotypes, western values and attitudes towards the family, and etc…) the stories left behind aren’t even coherent anymore.

Aside from all of these censorships mentioned, one thing above all that is set in stone: you will never find sex anywhere on China’s media. This probably accounts for the low rates of sexually-active, young people outside of the sacred bond of marriage.

Personally, I married a Chinese girl who was a 28-year-old virgin. And she is a fairly pretty girl.

In America, on the other hand, there are also censorship in its media — believe it or not. The foundation of the America’s Constitution and its Bill of Rights are built upon the “self-evident” Christian Principles, which states that “all men are created equal before God.” And as Benjamin Franklin puts it: “The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for, among old parchments, or musty records. They are written, as with a sun beam in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.”

Under this sacred flag and banner, United States gives itself the reputation of the best Human Rights record nation in the world. Its freedom, morals, fraternity, and equality are unparalleled anywhere on this planet, supposedly. Thus U.S. always stands from a high moral point and criticizes other nations and bereaving them – holding them to measure up to the U.S.’s standard.

But is this true? Or can the U.S. mainstream media and the politicians — leading its citizens to believe in the leaders patriotic callings of faith in their leadership — lie to us? Can they censor from the media anything that’s contrary to this immortalized image of a unified, unprejudiced, firm USA? Here I will show you some of the images that will never appear on mainstream media sources and that you will never see (no matter how important it is).

(And what I show you here is just the “tip-of-the-iceberg”. There are at least a hundred of videos just like this one, distributed underground.)

You’ll also see that the video is heavily commented, to lighten and justify, by “legal” experts on its legitimacy. But watch them for yourselves and be the judge of U.S. Media Corporation and its censorship.

  1. Comcast Censoring Conservative Voices?

    “If it bothers you that the China government does it, it should bother you when your cable company does it.” —Obama administration deputy chief technology officer Andrew McLaughlin

    The American Public and the FCC need to keep an eye on ISPs. Comcast has been censoring conservative message board posters in my opinion. Because dominant ISP Comcast is a gateway to the internet, they control many eyeballs. Comcast’s systematic censoring of conservative opinions on their News & Current Events message boards needs to cease and desist. If Comcast gets tax breaks from local government, then they have a civic, ethical, moral and perhaps legal obligation to provide fair and balanced moderation of their message boards. This type of social engineering is an outrage. Please get involved. Silence is consent. Post a conservative response to a News or Current Events thread here and see for yourself.

    This is America…Not CHINA

  2. Yes, you are right. This is not China. But let me ask this: why would Modern China spend so much money on Think Tanks trying to understand the Federalist Papers — describing the realpolitik of American governance: neither Conservative nor Liberal?

    You must be the expert on western politics that has a history of 2,500 years, right, stemming first from the time of Socrates. In fact, you MUST understand that the underlying roots of all politics stem from economics, right?

    I don’t doubt that you have read all the western economic history books, DATA, and laws that governs America today. Starting with David Richardo, Mathias to Adam Smith, and finally extending to the Keynesian Economy that dominated America all through the Cold War. (You must know the irony of this… considering that you know it all.)

    And let me ask you this: why would the Nobel Laureate Milton Friedman’s proposed “CONSERVATIVE ECONOMY” is simply ignored by the Federal Reserves. No one in the Federal Reserves take him seriously, whether Conservative or Liberal… Why is that? Nobel Prize must mean more than propaganda right — especially when it’s CONSERVATIVE?

    I’ll let you in on a secret: amongst the intellectuals, there are no true believers of either conservative or liberal doctrines. The bright minds of the academia take politics on a issue-by-issue basis.

    But amongst the laity (or commoners), there are still many “true believers” of the Left VS the Right. This is why Liberals and Conservatives alike spent billions upon billions of dollars (not including inflation) on “myth-makers” to come up with the language, the metaphors, Chickonomics, the oversimplified, short stories, and the media used to convince the laity — or people like you.

    And do you REALLY know how the media works in America, and who is it that controls it? Comcast??? I’m not going to waste the time here to explain Politics and Media 101 to you. But I suggest you 2 books:

    1. Pr!: A Social History of Spin
    http://www.amazon.com/Pr-Social-History-Stuart-Ewen/dp/0465061680

    2. Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media
    http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=manufacture+of+consent&x=0&y=0

    Some people say that the mortals who learned how to master “realpolitik” in the real world are the people who “knows how to master a sexy, whimsical woman with skinny long legs and tender breasts.”

    Simply put it: “it’s complicated…”

  3. This is not a left or right thing it is a censorship thing. I don’t care for technical justifications for ISPs doing traffic shaping either. Who really care’s about the motivations? Here in America, The FCC caters to the industries it is suppose to regulate at the expense of the common folk….much like our beloved SEC. Are you a technical expert? Is this REALLY that complicated?? Or do you find comfort playing in the grey areas.

    Please enlighten us. Lets strive for clarity.

  4. Hi Mr. McCabe,

    This is the only way I know of on how to contact the McCabe’s team, especially Mr. Dale Brenneman.

    I quit my job a year ago because I got married on a whim in China while visiting my long time girl friend there. So I didn’t come back to the States at all on my vacation or contact anyone during that period.

    In fact, my wife and I didn’t almost never left the house for a month.

    I don’t expect most of you to understand this. However, I know Mr. Brenneman might be able to. He is a very religious person. He would understand the power of love: true love can drive a man mad. It can also take away his reasoning.

    In fact, I didn’t even go to get my pay check from McCabe for the last 2 weeks that I was there. I also didn’t go get any unemployment benefits from the US government. I forgot all about these things, including money. I hope Mr. Brenneman can understand this.

    I also hope that the McCabe team can understand this too.

    I was just so in love with my wife at that time.

    I am currently working in China for an American Company, with a worth of 4 billion dollars. I rose quickly through the ranks to the position of Chief Technology Officer in a matter of a year. I also received 2% of the company’s stock holdings.

    But overall, I just want to say, I am sorry for leaving the McCabe, esp. without any notice. I was having a good time there and making good progress in learning McCabe’s technology. I also liked the people whom I worked with. They were all so nice to me. And I apologize for leaving them.

    Lastly, I want to share 2 videos of my wife with the McCabe team — the woman who drove me crazy and even managed to change my citizenship. Please share these 2 videos with the rest of team members at McCabe.

    Here’s the first one:

    http://tv.oneworld.net/2010/03/27/how-a-pretty-kind-and-gentle-girl-changed-my-national-citizenship-from-america/

    And Here’s the second one

    http://tv.oneworld.net/2010/03/22/game-systems-like-wii-can-bring-cross-cultural-wall-down/

    The girl I married is very humble, gentle, kind, high-spirited, funny, and a ball of fun.

    P.S. I wish McCabe Company continues its excellent progress all throughout the world. I take pride in having worked for a company whose software were used to analyze software of space programs and large-scale software projects all over the world.

    Thanks,

    Sincerely,

    Charles L. Wang
