China Watch | Introduction

Level 2China Watch from the ABC presents views and opinions about China from an Australian point of view. See also:

ABC China Watch | Episode 1: Never tell the whole truth

Level 2Consider the alternative views about the way news is reported in China, as well as the way the news is reported about China. Compare and contrast the differences between the way the Chinese media reports on China and the way the rest of the world reports on China.

"See the difference" – that’s the motto of China's global news network CGTN. But "seeing the difference" comes with a catch. CGTN says it tells stories from a "Chinese perspective" – but what that looks like in practice is more like serving the ideological aims of the Chinese Communist Party. Beijing is training up foreign journalists, buying up space in overseas media and expanding its own networks on an unprecedented scale in an attempt to challenge what it perceives as Western hegemony over global media. In this episode of China Watch, Sean Mantesso delves into Beijing's expanding global media presence and asks whether China is achieving its ambitious goal of moulding the narrative on China the world over.

ABC China Watch | Episode 2: Xi Jinping's rise to post-modern chairman

Level 2"For a man named by Forbes as the world's most powerful person, there's been little transparency as to how Xi Jinping accrued so much power in such a relatively short amount of time." (ABC, 2019). What does this say about the man and the Chinese system of government and how is it different in Australia?

"China’s President Xi Jinping is one of the most powerful men in the world, but it hasn’t always been this way. Xi has stared down revolutionary fervor during the Cultural Revolution – and muscled out rivals in an atmosphere of brutal party politics to now become the paramount leader of China’s Communist Party. In this episode, we look at how Xi Jinping went from life among Beijing’s political elite – to living in a cave in remote countryside – to now being China’s most powerful ruler since Mao. " (Mantesso, 2019)
