Time Magazine Promotes Chinese Drone Business in Exchange for Cash

Time Magazine has sold out.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

As part of a $700,000 advertising campaign, Time magazine published articles from a Chinese state-run media agency touting a controversial Chinese drone maker accused of helping the government surveil Uyghurs and boosting the Chinese Communist Party’s latest five-year economic plan.

Time has published 75 online articles from China Daily as part of the lucrative ad deal, which began late last year. The Time webpage discloses that the company is paid to publish the China Daily articles, though not that they are state-sponsored propaganda.

The Justice Department requires China Daily to disclose its media activities under the Foreign Agents Registration Act due to its affiliation with the People’s Republic of China. The news agency paid millions of dollars for advertising and printing over the past six months to American newspapers and magazines, including Time, the Los Angeles TimesChicago Tribune, and Foreign Policy magazine.

The partnerships provide a window into the tactics the Chinese Communist Party uses to influence international audiences, and the revelation is likely to fuel concerns about an arrangement in which American news outlets peddle Chinese propaganda. The Jamestown Foundation, a pro-democracy think tank, has questioned whether American news outlets will tone down negative coverage of China because of the advertising partnerships.

The last article published by the outlet for China Daily was on April 26th and lauded the Chinese for the progress made in the last 50 years.

Time lost all credibility when they put the Boston marathon bomber on the cover.

Who buys Time?
I don’t, but soon we’ll all be out of our homes, so it could come in handy for arse wiping in the reeducation camps.

Time used to be a reputable magazine–not any more. Does anyone subscribe to Time now?

Honestly, folks, I’ve not purchased a TIME in at least 30 years, largely mindless liberal pabulum puke. IMHO.

This from the same outlet that published “The Secret Bipartisan Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election”
From that article “a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes…..an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans…”
Also: “a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it.”
More proof that our mainstream media is bought and paid for to promote the leftist controlled Democrats and denigrate all who oppose them.

No surprise. Time has been an anti-American slop bucket for decades.
