On Pelosi’s Visit, China’s Messaging Machine is Targeting the Global South

HEADLINE TRANSLATION: Pelosi's visit to Taiwan violates the "One China Policy", say Chinese diplomats

China mobilized its entire global messaging machine to protest U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recently concluded visit to Taiwan. Angry reactions have shown up in newspapers across the Global South, from Brazil to Congo to Oman and beyond. 

While the Global South media was going to report on the crisis anyway, the wave of pro-China coverage shows the range of tools Beijing has developed to get its message out there:
