Confessions Made in China

Magnus Fiskesjö's picture

Dear all,

This is my new article on how media swallows, and helps disseminate (sometimes unwittingly), the worst kind of Chinese state propaganda: the TV confessions spectacles, coerced and produced under torture: 

Fiskesjö, Magnus. "Confessions Made in China." Made in China 3.1 (January-March 2018), p. 18-22; 108-109 (list of references).

Comments/suggestions welcome. Especially for how we can free the victims.
