The U.S. is insulting the Chinese media. It is affecting both countries. My colleagues in Beijing believe, correctly, that Washington should have tried to increase communication, not to bring it to a halt.

Twist what is happening; reverse facts. That is what the Western media does when "dealing with" China, Russia, Iran or several "unfriendly" Latin American countries. It is an extremely old game, with roots in the colonial era.

If you have monopoly on disseminating information to all corners of the Planet, such cynical approach might actually work.

If only one person is allowed to talk, then what he says could become, inevitably, the truth.

Washington loves to snap at "undemocratic nations". But the truth is, both the United States and the United Kingdom, in unison, have managed to create a thoroughly and truly undemocratic global system of governance, economic practices and "information" (in fact - disinformation).

Countries that defend their own people are painted as "regimes", even dictatorships. Their media outlets which are using simply common logic are smeared as "propaganda" channels.

In summary, if you pay for "information" invented, manufactured and refined in the U.S. and Europe, by the Western press agencies and television networks, you will be just fine and get patted on the back. Especially if that information is helping to maintain global political and economic dictatorship of the West. So, if you pay for getting your people brainwashed and indoctrinated, you will be ranked high on the various "freedom of information" indexes.

But be warned: if you tell the truth, or if you expose Western lies, you will get smeared, insulted as a demagogue and an undemocratic liar. That is what is happening right now to China.

"People in France, Spain and elsewhere are rioting, in desperation."

?????

I live in Spain, Andre', and I can assure there have been no riots, except those of the Catalans some months ago, and that was due to their quixotic quest for independence, not desperation. Unless you're referring to the feminists who got huffy with the police. But if you think that's a riot, you've never been in Detroit.

In fact, I just published a satire on this theme: https://www.opednews.com/articles/Coronavirus-The-Pain-in-S-by-Philip-Kraske-Breakdown_Chaos_Coronavirus-Pandemic_Crowds-200317-673.html
