The Fox News of China

China Central Television (CCTV), the state broadcaster, was airing a story on training exercises involving their air force.  And in it, they aired footage of a plane exploding in mid-flight.  So what’s the issue?  Well, some crazy producer lifted the footage, verbatim, from Top Gun.  And this isn’t limited to just this one incident.  It happens with them all the time.  So disinformation in misleading representations aren’t just limited to Fox.  It seems that they have Chinese counterparts, the state sanctioned television broadcasters.
