Something like that anyway.

And the concentration camps and slave labour. The woke should be all over this. I wonder why they're not?

"The Left" = "Things I Don't Like".

I have no idea who "the woke" are supposed to be, since that's all just made up shit. But if you can tear yourself away from your usual video diet to read The New York Times, The Nation, The Guardian, The Washington Post, etc., I think you will find plenty of criticism of the Chinese government, its actions and its policies. Just because you watch all these shouty videos that tell you that "the left" isn't criticizing China doesn't mean that this is actually the case.

I believe you know how Google works, so I suggest having a go some time.

Well, it's much higher rated in terms of accuracy and journalistic standards than the most popular English publications, which are basically rated as junk in journalistic terms.

It's a left wing rag. It's more trustworthy than the likes of the Daily Mail for sure but that's hardly a tough target to hit.

One of the highest rated in the UK. Of course, that's why it's unpopular. It doesn't print what you want to hear.

Well that all depends on who you ask now, doesn't it. It's fiercely pro-EU so I'm not surprised you like it.

You know exactly who "the woke" are - and guess what? You're one of them.

As for the publications that you're talking about most are being used as propaganda mouthpieces by the CCP. Only the woke pay much attention to the list of rags you've provided. And the Guardian? That is the most discredited bias-wise of them all.

Look, I mean it's fine, most British news sources these days are dog shit and the guardian isn't there worst by any stretch. I'm just not sure how impartial or authoritative it is either considering its hard left-wing tendancies.
