    Can you directly post the articles here? There is a five article limit for New York Times. You have to clear your browser cookies before you can read all of them and that's a hassle.

    So much NYT exclusive alternate history. About 1/3 to 1/2 of each article is basically NYT echo chamber of misinformation.

    No, I would actually rate it as accurate.

    I disagree. My experience in China is widely different from NYt, both political and economic. The problem with NYT is they just keep repeating the same lies (that either they created or the CIA, one and the same in my books) and hope that it sticks. Because if you don't know better, lies eventually becomes the truth. Herr Goreing will be proud of the NYT for sure.

    Perhaps you could list a few of the most glaring errors.

    "Among its neighbors, China’s rise provokes fears that an unwanted piece of history is being resurrected — the old tribute system that cemented China’s status as the Middle Kingdom. For centuries, other nations bowed in recognition of China’s imperial might, bestowing gifts on the emperor and accepting vassal status to secure trade and peace."

    That's what I'm reading right now, on money and muscle. A very much obvious example of what Americans think the Chinese tribute system is like. Because that is how the American vassalage system is set up. In reality, it is just a trading relationship and China keeps the peace in SE Asian and NE Asia.

    Pretty much all the articles start with some truth, get you to believe them, then start with half truth then full on misinformation.

    "For the Western powers whose order has prevailed since the end of World War II, China poses a foundational challenge. The United States and its victorious allies erected institutions that were — at least rhetorically — designed to keep the peace by promoting trade and fair competition. "

    Americans keep the peace? Lol nice joke. And as far as I remember China won WW2, but is a challenge to the American system.... Americans on trade had not been fair to even their friends and allies.. japan is a good example.

    I'm too lazy to go into detail, but basically half if not more of every article is basically BS.

    And don't get me started on NYT's second half of article on the SCS. Once again just repeating the BS all these MSM writes.

    Notice none of these articles interviews positive views from China even though it is about China? On supposed "experts" that are mostly American with a clear biased view already.
