The author’s background
FP (Foreign policy) recently published an article named 《Who is Guo Wengui》on its website. This article is full of rumor and lacks objectivity and integrity. Foreign Policy endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the run-up to the 2016 US presidential election. This was the first time in its 50-year history had the magazine endorsed a candidate.1
The author is James Palmer, who is a deputy editor at Foreign Policy. Palmer is the author of books like《The Bloody White Baron》 and《The Death of Mao: The Tangshan Earthquake and the Birth of New China》. A few reviews from the Amazon readers below may tell some interesting points:
《The Bloody White Baron》
“Palmer’s actually a pretty colorful writer, but the problem with his subject, Baron Ungern-Sternberg, is that there’s not a whole lot of reliable documentation on him as a person.”
“Lots of editorializing on the author’s part, which isn’t bad in general, but in history I expect more objectivity, otherwise the whole book is thrown into doubt.”
“The author does his best to flesh out a story that is real but lacking in much reliable documentation”
《The Death of Mao》
“The role of mass protest, and especially the fact that in 1976 Deng was popular with protestors in Tien am Mien Square was particularly interesting – especially in light of what he did in 1989.”
“He also mentions his Chinese grandparents – without explaining how he acquired them.”
“Capitalist propaganda of the highest form: It is a very informative book but everything seems to dig at communism and a pro capitalist backhander. would be great I just felt like I was reading a really biased book. devalued all of your statements”
From readers’ comments and the author’s photos on the website, we can infer that James Palmer is an author of Chinese descent, and he clearly has a personal tendency to praise the top leaders of the CCP in his previous books. The 08/27/2020 Lu-De Media2 revealed that the China’s Treasury is hidden in various Communist Party’s top leaders’ families, and the wealth spread and hidden in their relatives and illegitimate childeren in western world. The successors of these families have already been westernized and hold American Citizenship, who probably can’t even speak Chinese.
Senior journalists generally say that the best way to analyze news is the interest analytical method. News interpretation is the basis of the interest analytical method. The most important requirement for news interpretation is to learn to see things through. I believe that readers have sufficient analytical skills, and can judge by themselves where the interests of FP alongwith this article and the author come from and who is the backhander behind them.
