Beijing Readying "Retaliation List" After US Names 6 More Chinese Outlets As Foreign Missions

On Wednesday the US State Department designated six more Chinese media outlets as "agents of China's government," forcing them to have to register officially as foreign missions if they want to keep operating on US soil under the Foreign Missions Act. This brings the total number of Chinese media outlets considered "foreign missions" or essentially agents of a foreign power to 15.

“We simply want to ensure that American people, consumers of information, can differentiate between news written by a free press and propaganda distributed by the Chinese Communist Party itself,” Pompeo said. “Not the same thing,” he bluntly concluded.

Predictably, an angry reaction was swift out of well-known Chinese state media pundits, foremost among them Global Times editor Hu Xijin, who denounced that "The US has gone too far."
