Britain shuts down China’s propaganda unit?

The British government has just shut down the China Global Television Network (CGTN) in that country due to its close connection with the Chinese Communist Party. Apparently, CGTN also has an office in America.

The Daily Caller explains

The British government on Thursday revoked the television license for China Global Television Network, citing the news organization’s affiliation with the Chinese Communist Party.

Ofcom, the British regulator, said that Beijing’s control of CGTN put the network in violation of its requirements that broadcasters not be controlled by “political bodies.”

Ofcom determined last year that CGTN had violated fair broadcasting requirements during its coverage of pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. The Chinese government has opposed the protests, which began in 2019 against a law supported by Beijing.

CGTN also operates in the U.S., with its headquarters in Washington, D.C.
