China's 'unity of thought' plan tightens party control over state-run media



David Zweig, director of the Center on China's Transnational Relations at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, commented on China’s plan of “unity in thought” to tighten CCP’s control over state-run media on Fox news. 

The Communist Party of China announced this week consolidation of state-run media such as China Radio International, China National Radio and China Central Television, along with its international broadcast arm, China Global Television Network into one one entity called "Voice of China."

This step will allow the Community Party to craft its message domestically and improve its image abroad.
