(ConservativeInsider.org) – The New York Times is notorious for pushing far-left policies and turning a blind eye to egregious acts from tyrants like Adolf Hitler, but some people held out hope that the newsgroup wasn’t just as sordid as it seems. However, a recent op-ed shows just how willing they are to spin facts to cozy up to the Chinese Communist Party.
On Monday, January 4, the New York Times published an article by Li Yuan, praising China’s “version of freedom.” The author shared his view on Twitter:
My latest on how the pandemic has upended many perceptions, including ideas about freedom. Chinese don’t have freedom of speech, freedom of worship or freedom from fear, but they have the freedom to move around and lead a normal day-to-day life.

While Yuan does acknowledge censorship and surveillance run rampant in Beijing, she looks at the people’s ability to move freely while the rest of the world grapples with COVID-19, ignoring the fact that the country allegedly started the pandemic in the first place.
Author Tim Young calls Yuan out for ignoring the millions of Uighur Muslims denied any sort of freedom in the country:
Did you happen to get any comments on China's "freedom" from the Uighur muslims detained in labor camps… or do they not get the New York Times there?

While our country does grant freedom of speech and freedom of the press, the New York Times is trying to show a horrific regime, the Chinese Communist Party, in a good light. In response, Americans must stand up and speak out against evil and promote good to hold fast to the heart of our nation.
