Taipei, Aug. 10 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said Saturday that a report by Reuters a day earlier saying that China was buying positive coverage in Taiwanese media confirmed Beijing's widespread infiltration of Taiwan.

Speaking with the reporters on the sidelines of a visit to a temple in Kaohsiung, Tsai said China's infiltration of Taiwan was "ubiquitous" and worries over Beijing's influence here were not unfounded.

She was responding to a Reuters report saying that Chinese authorities, including China's Taiwan Affairs Office (TAO), have paid at least five Taiwan media organizations for favorable coverage in various publications and even on a TV channel.

Among the stories, the report said, were two feature stories about a new Chinese government program aimed at luring Taiwanese business people to China and winning the hearts of Taiwan's people.
