Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

The Guardian, Washington Post, NyTimes, and Clickbots from China

lol1

Vesselnews dot Io.  I’m not familiar with this website, but if their report is true, the failing WaPo, NyTimes, and The Guardian, are all customers of click service providers from China.

The NyTimes is blocked in China, while WaPo and The Guardian are not. All three are vehemently globalist, and unabashedly anti-Trump.

Prior to December 16.

After Dec 16.

Here’s a comparison between several other websites, stretching from November to January.

NYT viewcounts

nytblockedfinalChina wasn’t even on the radar before december, but when the NYT’s viewership bottomed out, they had to resort to this level of trickery to inflate their Alexa ranking.

I wonder what kind of de-bunking CNN will concoct later today.  They’ll probably claim it’s due to DDos attacks from Chinese hackers. And if they do stoop that low, they’ll have to explain next why nobody actually reads the NYTimes.

What’s most interesting is that The NY Times has been completely blocked in China since 2012, and just last month Apple was ordered to pull two NYT apps from the App store despite users being unable to view content since the original 2012 ban. Per the NY Times:

When the Chinese government began blocking the Times websites in 2012, it also prevented users with Times apps from downloading new content.

People seeking to bypass internet filters have traditionally used VPN’s (Virtual Private Networks) which tunnel through China’s highly restrictive firewall, however China has been cracking down on VPN use for several years.

It’s the same case with The Guardian and the Washington Post.

Another explanation could be that Chinese viewers are really interested in Trump, and all three news sites have been provoking trade-war hysteria to sabotage Trumps economic plans for the US, but that doesn’t explain how the NYT moves in tandem as far as traffic goes with the other two news  sites
