How the Official Propaganda in China Fabricates News and Deceives People
(Clearwisdom.net) Oriental Horizon is a very popular TV program of the China Central Television (CCTV). Back in October of 1999, some reporters from Oriental Horizon interviewed me. I would like to describe my personal experience of the interview to make more people aware of how the official propaganda fabricates news and deceives people and how innocent and compassionate Falun Dafa practitioners are.
Accompanied by the leaders in my workplace, a few reporters from the Oriental Horizon program interviewed me with a video camera. They reminded me of the government's policy against Falun Gong in order to threaten me to cooperate with them. The reporters asked me how I cured my illnesses.
As a former leukemia patient, I was given a second life because of Falun Dafa. It was Teacher Li who saved my life when I was on the verge of death, made me a healthy person again, and taught me how to become a person with great morality. "Today I can't betray Falun Dafa just because you attempt to place me under pressure," I thought. "Doesn't CCTV educate people to be honest? Do you want me to tell the truth, or to lie?" I asked. "Tell the truth, of course," both the reporters and my bosses answered. "Good. You're asking me to tell the truth. Now I want to tell you 'Falun Dafa is good', do you dare to videotape it and broadcast it to the whole country?" Discouraged, the reporters quickly contacted their boss with cell phones and reported the situation. Finally they left with empty hands, and they have never come back again.
I started to practice Falun Dafa back in April of 1995. Before my practice, I had been a veteran aplastic anemia patient. In spite of the long-term in-hospital treatments, my health deteriorated, and I suffered heart attacks, diabetes, and other new illnesses. I was hopeless. During my four years of hospitalization, there were fourteen patients like me. Among them twelve died, while only two people survived, thanks to Falun Dafa. Gratefully, I was one of the only two survivors who practiced Falun Dafa. It was Falun Dafa that purified my body and returned health back to me. Now my health is even better than the average person at my age. From the bottom of my heart, I'm telling everyone: It is Falun Dafa that saved my life and gave me a second life. It is "Truth-Compassion-Tolerance" - the law of the cosmos - that made me a good person. Please do not believe the deceptive words of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) propaganda. From my personal experience with the interview of Oriental Horizon, how credible can the CCTV programs like Oriental Horizon, Focus Interview, and the CCTV News be? Why don't they allow people to tell the truth?
I used to be the director and CCP secretary of a factory. Once I fell from a high place while on duty, and I was severely injured. Unable to move, I had to lie in bed for a dozen years after. Slight movement would make me suffer tremendous pain. I was diagnosed as late stage severe injury of vertebra with spinal columns joining together, which would be very unlikely to cure. The doctors predicted that I would eventually die of septicemia when the whole body became rigidly hard. As a result, I had to take four large pills and 50 yuan worth of painkillers every day.
Long-term treatments left me with a debt of 160,000 yuan, which was not reimbursable because of the deteriorating situation of my former employer. My son could barely stay in college even with the help of others, while my daughter had to work at a very early age. In despair, my whole family was lucky enough to encounter Falun Dafa, which turned my miserable life back to normal again. My health was improving day after day, and finally I was able to walk. In just a month, I was able to walk from the third floor to the ground level, and even walk for almost an hour to the practice site on a daily basis. I was so grateful and exuberant. Whenever we talked about Dafa, we were always tearful - for the greatness and miraculous effects of Falun Dafa!
Not long after, I went to the hospital for a check-up. When I gave my original X-ray picture to the doctor, he took a look and told his assistants, "Carry him in on a stretcher!" "Here I am," I replied. Suspicious, he said, "That's impossible!" "I was able to stand up after I practiced Falun Gong," I explained. Astonished, he exclaimed, "Miracle! Miracle!" Because of my miraculous recovery, dozens of people including my whole family, my friends, and my relatives all walked the path of Falun Dafa practice.
Three months after I started to practice Falun Dafa, I was riding a bicycle on the way to the nearby suburb. Enjoying the pleasant view with tears of joy streaming down my cheeks, I was so grateful to Falun Dafa and to Master Li. Without Falun Dafa, how could I possibly enjoy the wonderful view as a normal person after ten years of suffering in bed? It was Falun Dafa that saved my life and my family from the verge of collapse. Sadly, such a great practice is being oppressed; millions of good people are being persecuted; and numerous families have been destroyed, or are being destroyed, as a result of the brutal oppression of Jiang's regime, with the help of the fabricated news from the official propaganda!
