The situation of media control in the “FREE” world is at pandemic level. My personal bad experience with my tutor (an editor and executive producer of a major TV channel in Australia), and Mr. Joseph Morris, the director of the Morris Journalism Academy and INS demonstrated that, the concept of free speech, free expression, free press and free will is effectively death in the “FREE” world. (Click on: How I became an Outcast Journalist in the “FREE” World for detail of my story).
The positive aspect of the recent ANU research (2 Sept 2009, SMH) is that “Journalists were centrists”. Therefore, so long as our Journalists maintain their objectivity and dignity to report the truth and disregard of the pressure from their editors, I believe that, once there are enough numbers of Journalists joining the rank in persuasion of TRUTH. There will be hope for us to create a harmonise world base on fairness, justice, equality, mutual respect and mutual understanding.
In order to achieve these objectives, I will provide links or footnote throughout all the articles I research for this website in relation to my sources of information for Journalists to trace and expand their knowledge on the respective subjects and issues.
I may also raise a series of issues, logical questions and story angles at the end of all my articles for journalists to ponder and hopefully resulted in the initiation of a series of further investigation into the subject matter.
Links and Story Ideas for further investigation as follows
I decided to become a part-time journalist last year (2008) due to the brutal and racist treatment of China in a systemic way by the main stream western media and right wing politicians on a daily basis (click on Media Disinformation for detail of the dishonest and distorting report against China).
However, as I am only an individual and have been working full-time (6 days a week). I have limited time and energy for research, so I would like to provide the following information and story ideas for all righteous Western Journalists to think about and follow up.
I will eventually expand my areas of research to include all developing countries wrongly treated by the Western media sometime in the future, in the mean time, as China has been a target of daily abuse, I will begin my research with China:
Issue of Tibet and Xinjiang
The corporate or mainstream western media and right wing politicians constantly using Dalai Lama and Rebiya Kadeer claims (without verifying the truthfulness of those claims) or incident(s) of riot in Tibet and Xinjiang to question the minority policy in China without examining the following facts and reality:
Fact 1: China population consist of 56 ethnic groups. The Han Chinese with the biggest population is the majority. The rest of the 55 groups with a total population of 104 millions (5 times the size of Australia population) are minorities Chinese. The biggest minorities group are the Mongolian Chinese and Manchurian Chinese. Since the founding of the People Republic of China 60 years ago (1949) after century of brutal colonials bullying and exploitation and Japanese occupation, beside Tibet and Xinjiang, is there any conflict between the other 54 ethnic groups? Why?
Fact 2: The so-called Tibet Independent issue was created by the British invasion in 1903 with thousand of Tibetan monks been killed during that invasion. 11 years later, in 1914, Britain forced Tibet to declare independent from the Motherland, China. China has never recognised that declaration of independent nor any Western Countries. Check the United Nation records.
British government through it foreign secretary, Mr. David Miliband for the first time on 29/10/08 in a written Ministerial Statement officially acknowledge China sovereignty over Tibet. In the last two paragraphs of his statement he referred to a historic agreement dating back almost a century which acknowledged Chinese interest in Tibet but asserted that Tibet had never been fully part of the country as “anachronism” (historical mistake).
Fact 3: The CIA and American Government involvement in Tibet and Xinjiang.

2. US Government funding agency- NED website: www.ned.org for history of NED funding to all anti-China group including Tibet & Uighur. (Note: Story idea: There is no info on the website on how those fund been used by the respective recipients.)

Most of the Tibetans living outside China are 2nd, 3rd or even 4th generation overseas born Tibetans. They have never visited China before and they were brought up to hate China under the US government funding (including NED funding). Their statements on China were based on hear-say. This is one of the basic fact can easily be verified by Western Journalist in their next story idea. Why do the media kept quoting these people statement from time to time, and regarded them as facts to broadcast across the world without any factual verification?
Many overseas Tibetan did not get involve in any demonstration against China, I have spoken to one of them few month ago (unfortunately she didn’t want me to report our conversation—she didn’t want to be involved in either sides of the politic), have a chat with them! Find out the reason why?
Not all Overseas Tibetans support Dalai Lama, check the following YouTube Videos for protest against the Dalai Lama Oppression against Dorje Shugden Tibetans, This kind of news hardly draw the coverage of most mainstream Western Media. Why? Selective reporting is one of the major problem with the Western Media.

Dalai Lama Stop Lying Part Two
Many of the Chinese government officers involved in the International press briefing are Tibetans and Uighur themselves, but the media hardly mentioned their ethnicity. However, when they happened to come by a Han Chinese officer among the rank, they will draw to the world attention trying to portrait that as an ethnic oppression by the Han Chinese.
Again, many of the law enforcement forces on the ground in Tibet and Xinjiang are Tibetan and Uighur themselves. Most westerner cannot tell the different by their face, but I can. The Judges and policemen in the Court that make the sentencing were against Tibetan and Uighur. These are something that most mainstream western media didn’t want to tell you at all in their report.
