Review

The confessions made by Western journalists are documented in this new book titled 'Tiananmen Square "Massacre"? The Power of Words vs. Silent
Evidence':

In 1998, Washington Post journalist Jay Mathews confessed in the Columbia Journalism Review that "no one died at Tiananmen Square" and that "it is hard to find a journalist who has not contributed to the misimpression" (including himself). In 2004 the Christian Science Monitor revealed that the Human Rights Watch decided not to publish their own 52-page report that confirmed the Chinese side of the story.

In 2009, BBC journalist James Miles admitted that he had "conveyed the wrong impression." CBS journalist Richard Roth also confessed in 2009 that after a "debriefed on-air by Dan Rather (London office)", he made "an effort to avoid using the word "massacre", and acknowledges that he did not "make a point trying to contradict a colleague on the air".

Are you aware of the circumstances under which these journalists suddenly decided to admit their years of contribution to the "misimpression"? Are you aware that they then tried to change the story to a "Beijing Massacre" with the exception of Graham Earnshaw - a Reuters journalist?

Format: Paperback
What really happened at Tiananmen Square? This book by Wei Ling Chua challenges the western mass media and western government narrative in his well researched and analyzed book. Compellingly, he uses western mass media sources to undermine the depiction of events in 1989 at Tiananmen Square (and outside the square) by the same mass media. Chua challenges the fillip for the protests, the depiction of protestors as unarmed, the soldiers as violent, etc. He points to outside instigators and CIA involvement. He also contrasts the restraint shown by the Chinese authorities and military at Tiananmen Square versus the comparatively unrestrained police brutality launched against Occupy protestors. For those who closely scrutinize the western media, know well the concocting of disinformation to further elitist interests; e.g., the alleged attack on the USS Maine to start the US-Spanish war, the phantom attack at the Bay of Tonkin to attack North Viet Nam, and the claimed but non-existent WMDs to invade Iraq are just a few high profile government-media lies.
Chua has sourced his book well. Be open-minded and judge for yourself what really happened.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Dr Thomas Reuter on July 21, 2014
Format: Paperback
This book provides a different perspective on an event western readers associate more than any other with modern China, and which has become a tarnish on the reputation of the Chinese government with respect to how it deal with its own citizens. Let the reader decide whether this is deserved or not, after reading this book. Academics may quibble about some of the claims, and that is necessary too, but the book certainly contains a wealth of thought-provoking information.
Chua questions the official western account, and whether one agrees with him or not, he shines a light on the way enemy pictures are all to often created in the mass media to suit the political needs of the moment.
This is an important book and timely, as China once more is being painted black in preparation for what many experts believe is a plan to "contain" if not outright attack them on a pretext, never mind the suffering of China at the hands of foreign powers over much of its modern history. Again, whatever one may think of China and its history, citizens should at least be aware when their opinions are being moulded to suit the strategic interests of the military industrial complex. What we can do to master propaganda coming our way from all sides? Make sure we all are very well informed indeed, on all sides of every political argument! Then we can be truly free to form an opinion.

Format: Paperback
hongkong built a $10 million tianamen memorial and had annual demonstration to celebrate the tianamen riot, and now doing the same separatist demonstration in hongkong. this all points to the following evidences and conclusions:

1. the students ran away from the square when truck loads of weapons arrived for distribution
2. the soldiers expressed reluctance to harm the student, most conspicuously illustrated in the grossly misinterpreted video clip of a tank giving the right of way to a pedestrain.
3. if hongkong spent $10 million to build a memorial, how much they dished out to do the real thing? a billion? what's it used for?

obvious the hongkong separatist agitator were the real suspects that killed the soldiers in the hope of getting the soldiers mad enough to kill the students. but when the soldiers didnt do that, the hongkongese did themselves. just look at how determined they r now in hongkong.
