Chinese state media keeps itself busy finding things to criticise about other countries, with America the number one target. Contentious elections – such as the recent US midterms – gain a lot of attention in the Chinese press and are not portrayed in a favourable light. There’s also plenty of coverage of America’s violent crimes, social problems and corruption scandals. In this podcast, Mark Hannah, a senior fellow at the Eurasia Group Foundation, discusses how Chinese media views the US and the implications for international relations. The podcast host is Duncan Bartlett.
