Unravelling China’s ‘Sinister Plan’ to ‘Unleash Coronavirus’
Through puffery, distortion, and exaggeration Sky News markets a new book pushing the “China Virus” conspiracy theory. The craziness springboards from a 2015 Chinese conspiracy theory book that claims Taiwan crafted the 2003 Corona Virus to attack Mainland China straight into QTrumpian theory that China engineered Covid-19 to attack the U.S.
This is just another way to push fear and sell books through thinly masked Pseudo science. So yes, those scare quotes in the title are well deserved.

Amazingly, several posts rejected my claim that news outlets in China are often ordered to follow the government line. If you really need a source for that, it is my 30 years of reporting from China.
If you would like a more authoritative source than my own reporting, try rsf.org, which puts China at 177th place out of 180 countries in terms of press freedom.
