China reporting climate worsening

China’s reporting climate is deteriorating, a Beijing-based foreign press club said Thursday in a survey that found some overseas journalists were told to tone down coverage or risk visa problems.

The survey of 108 members of the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of China said 94 percent believed Chinese reporting conditions had worsened over the past year, with some citing increasing official pressure.

A spokeswoman for the foreign ministry — which handles relations with overseas media members residing in China — rejected the findings, telling a regular press briefing that freedom of reporting had “expanded”.

However, 70 percent of survey respondents said they experienced “interference, harassment and/or violence in the past year.”

Another 40 percent reported that some of their Chinese sources had been “harassed, detained, called in for questioning or otherwise suffered negative consequences for interacting with foreign journalists.”

“In 14 years reporting in China this is by far the most violent period,” one respondent was quoted as saying in the results, which were emailed to members.

“The nature of physical harassment is much worse. Across the board, uniform and plainclothes police, local authorities and even private citizens now feel it is possible to prevent foreign reporters from doing their work.”


Those of you that are double-minded, inclined to think you are of Christ because you believe what you have been taught as tradition, though you see the nature on this planet causing havoc, and Yahweh is NATURE – you are inclined to shadow your mind with darkness in your way of thinking “I’m not evil. God will not destroy me.” But you are forgetting that Satan also believes he is not evil, and so you prove yourselves to be his children because your minds share a common belief that is a LIE.

James 4:8 “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, sinners, and purify your hearts, double-minded people!”

Can you draw near before it’s to late? Yahweh is progressively revealing that She is the Source of what this world is presently experiencing in TRIBULATION. No one is here to force you to accept the TRUTH. That must come from within your own logic and be embedded within your heart, that Yahweh is dead serious about removing everyone and everything that has Satan’s footprint upon it. If you think that you are not under foot, then continue on with your belief. That is your right given to you by Yahweh as a freewill creation. But if you truly desire to walk in the light:

1 John 1:7 “But if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

Otherwise, you will be part of what is being cleansed away, because you remain in sin, and that is being removed from creation.
