The content of headlines and articles use minimal loaded words pertaining to national news such as “Xi stresses real combat training” or “Xi says senior officials “crucial” in Party, state governance.” Their US coverage also utilizes minimally loaded headlines and least biased coverage “Analysis: U.S.-DPRK relations to be Trump’s biggest 2018 foreign policy challenge, experts say.” Although they completely lack linked sourcing they do provide credible sources such as Brookings Institute, Stratfor and Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress through the use of quotes.
According to a Newsweek article “IS CHINA’S XINHUA THE FUTURE OF JOURNALISM?” Xinhua News Agency, by opening more overseas bureaus and expanding its business is similar to what “China’s state-run factories have done for tawdry baubles and cheap clothes: take something that has become a commodity and foist it onto the world far more cheaply than anyone else can. “It gives them an inherent competitive advantage.”
Further, according to CNBC in 2017, Xinhua News Agency mocked Indians by releasing a satirical video named the “Seven Sins of India.”
Despite some criticism from western media sources, Xinhua News Agency is high in factual reporting due to credible sourcing and least biased through the use of minimally loaded language. (M. Huitsing 1/6/2018)
