(Clearwisdom.net) In China, the state-run media are propaganda tools, controlled to serve the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Here I would like to describe my personal experience with the CCP-controlled media, and sincerely hope people will not be poisoned by their lies.

One day in the second half of 1999, at about 11 p.m., I was awakened by the sudden sound of someone knocking on my window. I asked who it was and heard the voice of the security director of our village. He asked me to open the door. I did not give it a second thought and opened the door.

Four or five strangers came in. Our village security director introduced them to me: one was the director of the Sujiatun District Police Department; another was the town mayor; two were from the Shenyang TV Station. At that time, I just remembered to ask them, “My yard gate was locked. How did you get into the yard?” They said that they came in by climbing over the wall.

I said, “My wall is 1.5 meters high. You did not knock on my gate. You are the director of a police department. You did not knock on my yard gate, yet led a group of people to climb over my wall and get into my yard in the middle of the night. Aren't you behaving like a bunch of robbers?”

They knew that they were wrong and no one said a word. Finally, the two people from the TV station broke the silence and pushed me towards my bed, saying, “You go to sit on the bed, just go sit on the bed.” I asked, “Why do you want me to sit on the bed?” They said, “Just go sit on the bed. Do it. You just say whatever we tell you to say.” Another person put a video camera on his shoulder, ready to start filming.

I immediately realized why they had come to my home at night. They wanted me to tell lies about Falun Gong and help them defame Falun Gong. I said to them, “On the issue of Falun Gong, you're asking me to say whatever you want me to say, which will not work. If you ask me to talk about Falun Gong, I will tell the truth. I have practiced Falun Gong for several years. I know I have benefited a lot. Before practicing Falun Gong, I often felt dizzy and my back was so painful that I could not straighten it. Soon after I started to practice, all of my illnesses disappeared.” After hearing what I said, they put down the video camera. The director said, “Everyone else follows our directions. Why don't you do what we tell you?” I said, “Others are others. I am myself. If you want me to talk, I will speak the truth. I practice Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I must speak the truth. If I tell lies, I would be letting my Master down and letting Dafa down.”

At that time, one of them said, “We give up”. They left when I insisted on speaking the truth. After they left, I realized that the government, police department and TV station were collaborating to create fabrications. The people of China are steeped in lies every day.
