A Chinese Communist Party (CCP) funded university program in Beijing for journalists whose aim is to produce journalists that follow Marxist ideals can lay claim to having major sponsors from the West.
The Global Business Journalism (GBJ) Program at Tsinghua University aims at developing journalists versed in Marxist journalism and is controlled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP.) The university also happens to be Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s alma mater.
Financial supporters of the school include Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, Bank of America, Business Week, CNN, The New York Times, Financial Times, Deloitte, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and others, including Facebook, reported The National Pulse.
The GBJ program has been running for 12 years and has 326 graduates from around 60 countries, reported The National Pulse. Xi studied chemical engineering at Tsinghua from 1975 to 1979, then went on to study Marxist theory and ideological education.
Graduates from the GBJ have become entrenched in major domestic and foreign media outlets, including the South China Morning Post, People’s Daily, China Daily, Economic Observer, Xinhua, Global Times, Radio Beijing, China Radio, Korean Broadcasting System, China Securities Journal, and also multinationals including Bloomberg, Deloitte, Ogilvy, Shell IBM, and Ogilvy & Mather.
Western media collaborate with CCP university
Government, communication, and education fields can also be added to the list.
In 2017, individuals such as CNN host Fareed Zakaria, Facebook Vice President Lori Goler, were guest lecturers for the Marxist indoctrinated program.
Lee Miller, the Bloomberg editor-at-large is listed as a professor, with Leslie Wayne, a New York Times former business reporter a visiting fellow.
Several CCP apparatchiks are also listed as professors and fellows. These Western media companies and partners are co-operating with Xi on his plan to rule the world.
As Xi said in 2016, “Wherever the readers are, wherever the viewers are, that is where propaganda reports must extend their tentacles, and that is where we find the focal point and endpoint of propaganda and ideology work.”
Bloomberg has contributed 10 of its infamous computer terminals, making it “the largest such installation at any university in the world.”
What makes it even more horrifying, the university reportedly conducted cyberattacks against the U.S. government and has strong ties to the CCP on issues of national security and technology.
The New York Times featured an article titled, “Professors, Beware. In China, Student Spies Might Be Watching.”
“Lu Jia, a professor of Marxism, was investigated by the school’s administrators this year after students led an online campaign accusing him of speaking critically of China and socialism. The students said they were inspired by a call by Mr. Xi in March to strengthen ideological training and to prepare for “national rejuvenation.” They started an anonymous social media account where they published line-by-line criticisms of professor Lu’s lectures and criticized him for saying that Western civilization was still predominant in the world while China’s civilization was in decline.”
