China bans BBC
The conflict between China and the West is constantly increasing. China has recently banned the British TV channel BBC World News. China’s national radio and television administration announced the ban on Thursday. China says the BBC has misrepresented Kovid-19 and Xinjiang. And the BBC has violated the condition of true and fair news.

The NRTA alleged that reports broadcast by the BBC had damaged China’s national interests. And its national unity is weakened. The BBC does not meet the requirements for foreign channels to be broadcast in China. Because of this, China has also banned the BBC from applying for broadcast until next year. On 4 February, Britain banned China’s official media CGTN in its country. Since then there has been discussion that China will also ban the BBC in response. A UK investigation during the ban found that CGTN lacked editorial control. In addition, the channel was affiliated with the ruling Communist Party of China.
Britain’s Foreign Secretary Dominic Rabe on Thursday stayed the decision to reject the BBC World News Channel as unacceptable. And said that it has hurt China’s global stance. Rybe said on Twitter that the decision to ban BBC World News in China was a denial of China’s media freedom. China has imposed some strict restrictions on media and internet freedom around the world. Also, this new step will tarnish China’s reputation in the eyes of the world.
Britain’s BBC broadcaster expressed disappointment over the ban on Thursday. “We are disappointed by the action of the Chinese authorities,” a BBC spokesman said in an email. The BBC is the world’s most trusted and international news broadcaster. Accurately reports worldwide news, without fear or favor.
