The original centerpiece of the so-called Chinese netizens' campaign against the Western media was the website anti-cnn.com. I have been severely critical of the movement because I believe the claims made by the group far exceeded their evidence. It's a pattern which has been repeated in the Chinese blogosophere where one unsubstantiated claim after another is now being leveled against individuals, culminating in vicious personal attacks against Grace Wang, foreign journalists, and a Chinese newspaper editor. Chinese netizen attacks have recently been launched against France and its largest retailer.
Now, a German student has decided to fact-check the evidence supplied by the anti-CNN bloggers; the material that fueled accusations that first ignited the Chinese netizens. It seems not only -- as I have long maintained -- was their evidence inconclusive, the German student shows they misrepresented some facts. He examines anti-CNN's clippings from Der Spiegel and CNN and shows them to have been "cropped" and even "mislabeled." Sound familiar? His interesting expose of the anti-CNN group is a website called I Love China.
