The outburst by the Beijing communist regime against the Australian media, particularly the ABC (Beijing accuses Australian media of colluding with ‘heretical cult’ in Fairfax press), for listening to Falun Gong practitioners, is another example of the Chinese Communist Party’s attempt to control Australian political life.
