Chinese Embassy Spokesperson's Remarks on The Guardian's Misuse of A Chinese Enterprise-related Picture in One of Its Reports
2021/02/24

Question: On 22 February, The Guardian carried a report about engine parts dropped from a Longtail Aviation's Boeing 747 cargo plane in Netherlands causing injury, in which it used a picture of an Air China's cargo plane. What is the Chinese Embassy’s comment on this?

Embassy Spokesperson: This misuse of the picture was false reporting and misinformation, which affected the image of a Chinese enterprise. The Chinese Embassy in the UK expresses grave concern over such misinformation, and requests immediate correction and apology to the Chinese company affected by the misconduct.

News media should uphold the professional ethics of journalism and conduct reports in an objective, fair, balanced and accurate manner. Misinformation like this has not been rare in some western media’s reports, betraying their disregard for the ethics of journalism and their deep-rooted prejudice against China. We urge the relevant media to stop seeing China through "tinted glasses" and view China and its development in an objective and fair manner.
