China's Disinformation Campaign Undermines Peace: U.S.

In a groundbreaking report, the US State Department laid out Beijing's tactics and techniques for shaping public opinion, including buying content, creating fake personas to disseminate its message, and using repression to suppress unfavorable accounts, as reported by Didi Tang for the Associated Press (AP).


The Global Engagement Center released the 58-page report and cautioned that Beijing's information campaign could ultimately influence decision-making worldwide and undermine US interests.



The Global Engagement Center, a State Department agency dedicated to countering foreign propaganda and disinformation, released the 58-page report and cautioned that Beijing's information campaign could ultimately influence decision-making worldwide and undermine US interests.



Jamie Rubin, who leads the center, warned, "Unchecked, the Chinese government's manipulation of information could, in many parts of the world, diminish the freedom to express views critical of Beijing."


He further stated that Beijing's efforts could "reshape the global information landscape and jeopardize the security and stability of the United States, its allies, and partners."

"We do not want to witness an Orwellian blend of fact and fiction in our world," he emphasized. "This would erode the secure world of rules and rights upon which the United States and much of the world depend."


Over the weekend, China criticized the report, labeling it as "disinformation in itself as it distorts facts and the truth."


Government & politics: Politicians, government officials and delegates standing in front of their country flags in a political event in the financial district.

The Chinese foreign ministry argued that "in reality, it is the US that pioneered the weaponization of the global information space. The State Department agency is a source of disinformation and the command center of "perception warfare."
