CCTV FOLLIES 11.29 US THREATENS PEACE
CCTV features Iran spy shots of US aircraft carrier -"People in captivity" freed -Stand-ups in Israel and Gaza -Xi and Putin lay foundation and pave way -Cradle of revolution endures
CCTV broadcasts Iran drone footage of US Eisenhower Aircraft Carrier entering Persian Gulf, echoing Iranian complaints that this is a blatant provocation.
Iran drones are said to be made with Chinese help, though CCTV is hush on this.
Release of Israel hostages and Palestinian prisoners proceeds apace. CCTV calls them detainees, Wang Yi uses term “people in captivity” but in any case, China media consistently present the story out of context, without reference to brutal kidnappings or the horrific events of October 7.
CCTV reporter Zhao Bing reports on fifth exchange of prisoners. Unlike yesterday’s stand-up near the border of Gaza, today he appears without his helmet and flak jacket.
File footage from Gaza follows…
CCTV’s Palestinian stringer Anas reports from Rafah.
Russia continues to fight in “self-defense” against aggressors. CCTV points to NATO as root problem, saying they should seriously reconsider their failed Ukraine strategy.
In other pro-Russian news, Russia gives nuclear-shy Japan a good scare.
Russia complains about Finland closing its border to riffraff from Russia. It’s so unfair!
Venezuela calls on US to drop all its ridiculous, ineffective sanctions.
And now back to the top of the program for domestic news highlights:
Xi Jinping really cares about global supply chains and thusly airs his support of the China International Supply Chain Expo as an example of China commitment to safe and stable development.
Xi has been a pioneer and visionary in pointing out the importance of Chinese-style quality development and trade.
Xi Jinping’s belief in maintaining a stable global supply chain has many firm believers.
THANK YOU XI! THANK YOU PUTIN!
