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 news is dominated by Hong Kong, and yet 29 miles from England is France and this extraordinary rebellion of the 'yellow jackets' that has produced an equally extraordinary violence from the state and has been virtually ignored," Pilger told RT's Going Underground program.

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.

They see a challenge in China. Undoubtedly it's an economic challenge, but it's not a military challenge. This 19th century view of the world that permeates Washington and has returned to this country, the United Kingdom, has now created a war situation with China.

The Hong Kong "protests" are covered in detail, frequently and on a daily basis - always from a pro-western/"democracy" UK/USA-supported perspective. The use of tear gas is "deplored" vigorously - as if Western nations haven't and wouldn't use such a thing against protestors (thus the BBC and NPR and Zionist groups stay mum about the Gilets Jaunes and the serious injuries inflicted on French protestors - against austerity, not "for" so-called democracy therefore unworthy - by the French police).
