CHINA UNSCRIPTED

179 Chinese Propaganda Is Everywhere

Chinese propaganda is no longer confined to Chinese state-controlled media. The Chinese Communist Party has realized that its propaganda is much more effective when it comes from sources that appear independent from the Chinese government. In this episode of China Unscripted, we discuss how Chinese propaganda has become more international and covert, how Chinese companies and ambassadors are involved in suppressing and promoting certain narratives about China, and how China tries to co-opt social media influencers. Joining us in this episode of is Sarah Cook, the research director for China, Hong Kong and Taiwan at Freedom House.
