TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A report from the National Security Bureau (NSB) confirms that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has exercised spin control through partnered media outlets in Taiwan.
The report suggests the CCP’s influence permeates Taiwan’s electronic and print media, and the platforms of certain popular online figures.
“Response measures to China’s fake news psychological warfare,” a collaborative report between the NSB and the Ministry of Defense’s Political Warfare Bureau, was delivered to the Legislative Yuan on Thursday morning (May 2).
It states that the CCP manufactures specific content intended to divide Taiwanese society that is delivered directly through Taiwanese or partnered media outlets, according to the Central News Agency. Other outlets are then led to corroborate the spin reports, it claims. [FULL STORY]
