...an article appeared in the Chinese military's newspaper PLA Daily bashing Guillermo Del Toro's epic monster versus robot movie. In the article, which actually should be called an opinion or editorial, the writer makes claims that the movie is nothing more than a vehicle for America's propaganda machine. The PLA Daily itself is the official newspaper/media outlet of the People's Liberation Army, serving the same function as say the People's Daily, which is the mouthpiece of the Chinese government. The article, written by Zhang Xieli, was picked up and republished by pretty much every Chinese State media outlet including Xinhua, People's Daily, and the Global Times. In Zhang's article, Zhang claims that the movie and pretty much every movie out of Hollywood is a Western plot against China. http://kotaku.com/chinas-military-says-pacific-rim-is-american-propagand-1196612758 _________________________________________________________________________________ As usual, Americans keep targeting innocent Chinese mind with their venomous propaganda.
