Western mainstream media now operate in an extremely narrow spectrum of authorized opinions and views; we just have to look at how differently protests in Hong Kong and France are covered, veteran journalist John Pilger has said.

The explanation of course is that the US and its allies are in a state of virtual war against China, the goal of which is to "maintain supremacy in all areas of human affairs," he said.
