China: BBC lambasted for stock photo inaccuracy

Global Voices OlympicsFollowing the fear-mongering perpetuated this week by (actually pro-surveillance) American senator Sam Brownback that China will be spying on attendees of the Olympics in their hotel rooms, anti-CNN.com has localized the story by looking at how the BBC covered it in the current anti-CNN front-page exposé post, ‘British Brain-washing Channel [sic] (BBC) Lies again!’

通过搜索,我们发现这张图片至少6次被BBC作为”当前“新闻配图引用过,而相关新闻的时间跨度长达8年!

Following a search, we discovered that this photo has been used as “current” to accompany at least six times for news that spans eight years!

So following the one above, the anti-CNN.com community was able to dig up:

A few cherrypickings of the first of four pages and growing of comments on this thread:

实在服了西方媒体记者的”敬业精神”.
这张照片怎么看怎么象是两个武警在学上网.

‘China's Big Family':
This really makes a joke of western media journalists’ “professionalism”
Is it me or does this photo just look like two wujing learning how to use the internet

。。。。现在都液晶显示器了,还用这么老的显示器做新闻图片,他们是不是认为我们这8年就没发展啊,造假也太没水准了吧

dreamerxiao:
We use LCD screens now, how could a photo with such an old monitor be called news? Do they think we haven't been developing here these past eight years? They can't even make fake news properly!

西方民主的所谓新闻自由,难道不负任何责任吗?不负责任就叫自由呀?哦,西方就是要让中国不负责任呀,不负责任以后,他们就有机会了

piaoyi:
So in Western democracy's so-called press freedom, is being irresponsible the way to be responsible? Irresponsibility is just freedom? Sure, the West just wants China to be irresponsible, so that when it is, then they'll have their chance

    Whoever use stock pictures as evidence for fake news and for support of their hidden agenda, be them Communist media or BBC, SHAME ON THEM!!!
    Those who want to make propoganda will always use this tricks to attract eyeballs, but when people know the truth, it will only make the credibility lower and lower…
    After the biased media attacks in March on Tibet roits, now I think most Chinese are giving only a 60% or even lower credibility to those media reports…
    Very sad for BBC and alike… The editor-in-chief should have been more careful with these suspicious reports, to stop some biased journalists ruining the media’s reputation in ordinary Chinese people.

    Sometimes between 30-July and 1-August,the great China fire wall has opened a small window,Chinese netizens are given access to BBC(mandarin),www.rfa.org/mandarin,wikipedia,etc.
    Followings are some of the posts on Strong Nation Forum at http://www.people.com.cn,a CCP official web site.

    反动 :translate (1)senile-minded (2)reactionary.For readers not familiar with CCP terminology,反动 was used extensively in the past on anyone or anything the CCP disliked.Once 反动 was applied,heavy penalty usually followed,sometimes death penalty.

    On this occasion my prefered choice is senile-minded.

    对于反动网站或不反动网站,其实没有根本的界限.只要报道属实.反之,若不属实,任你的谎言说得再好,人民也当你放屁. ( 官人我还要6次 08-08-01 21:58:38 ) 0字 ( 0/168/0 )

    About senile-minded or not senile-minded web sites,there isn’t any basic line of division.All we want is those reportings are factual.On the contrary,if the reportings are non-factual,no matter how beautiful your lies are,folks will just treat them like farts.

  • Kai

    alibaba, maybe you should start a website and post translations of Chinese citizen’s different reactions and opinions about these issues, similar to what Kennedy does here at GVO. There are unfortunately still many Western people who don’t realize that many Chinese are not brainwashed robots who fully believe anything the CCP government tells them. The reality, as charlotte noted above, is that many Chinese are often skeptical of their government-controlled media but even if they are, they’re still human and are liable to become defensive whenever they feel threatened. It is a human reaction, even if it is not a mature or rational one. More importantly, it is not a reaction that only the Chinese have.

    Intellectual dissent very much exists in Chinese society regardless of what the CCP government tries to promote or enforce. I think many Western people would feel better knowing that, but do not simply because of the language barrier.

  • ali baba

    To kai,
    I totally agree with you,kai.I have cut n paste many articles in my USB drive,many of them are of top academic values.It takes up a lot of time,and heart,to do a good translation.
    By the way,can you read mandarin too?

  • I really like alibaba’s translation comments, a lot. But Kai’s idea makes a lot of sense to me as well, especially if translations were well-tagged, that would make a really amazing database for anyone (non-Chinese-reading) interested in any specific topic. I know that if something like that existed, I’d use it a lot for reference on specific keywords.
