Who does Chinese media speak for?

The article named "Who does Chinese media speak for", has been popular on the Internet these days. It told about the situation where Chinese media always translates the US news without considering it is important to China or not. But the author has confused the different roles the media has played in the west and China. Not all the news should speak for the government, in fact.

But there is one right point at least. Though US is important to the global world, not all the news is important to every human. Like the news about CBS's scandel in NY times yesterday, it became the headline of the news in all the local Hong Kong paper today. But who indeed knows what happened? Will most of the people who can not access to CBS care?
