Western-style press freedom proves to be increasingly decaying


…Western media outlets have done almost nothing in stopping wrong wars on our living planet in the past years, nor have they helped educate people to effectively combat public health crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

To a certain extent, Western-style press freedom is becoming an easy avenue to gain social status. In fomenting the new “cold war”, the media outlets of the US and the rest of the West have played the role of world-peace destroyer. In the sphere of international relations, these media outlets have now completely turned into a tool for Western political elites to fan geopolitical competition or rivalry, going against the justice and morality of humanity. They have endorsed the politicians’ extreme policies and constantly undermined world peace. Press freedom of independent media outlets shouldn’t be like this.
