Another Chinese Communist Party “reporter” has been found masquerading their true identity and lying to the President of the United States in the White House Press Briefing Room.
On Wednesday evening, reporter Ching-Yi Chang told President Trump that he was from Taiwan, not China.
But Ching-Yi Chang lied. Just like his Chinese Communist Party (CCP)-colleague Youyou Wang two days ago, as reported by the National Pulse.
Before the question, the U.S. President asked Ching-Yi (or Jingyi) “Where are you from?”
Ching-Yi responds: “Taiwan”, to which the President responds: “Good.”
In reality Ching-Yi represents another Chinese state-run outlet called Dragon Television, owned in turn by Shanghai Media Group, one of the largest state-owned media groups in China.
”Reporter” Ching-Yi Chang, told @realDonaldTrump he is from Taiwan yesterday in the White House.
He was *born* in Taiwan.
But he *works* for Chinese state owned Shanghai Media Group – a propaganda arm of the Chinese Communist Party.

In 2017 the Christian Science Monitor reported: “Chinese TV viewers can’t get enough of the Trump Show and coverage of America in general, says Ching-Yi Chang, White House correspondent for Shanghai Media Group.”
During the interview with CS Monitor, Ching-Yi lashed out at his home nation of Taiwan – now under assault by China. “…[T]here are always drawbacks to democracy,” he claimed, before lambasting the United Kingdom for daring to vote to leave the European Union.
Ching-Yi then gloats about Chinese efficiency: “In Washington, expansion of the metro system has been chugging along slowly for years. In China, a project like that would be finished in six months,” reported CS Monitor.
On his own Facebook page, Ching-Yi (or Jingyi) refers to himself as a “Chinese” reporter. He posts, about himself: “Although I am the Chinese media reporter most frequently visited by the U.S. President, 2019 is particularly special. I have the opportunity to ask questions on critical trips to Vietnam, Japan and France with Trump, both inside and outside the White House.”
The Facebook page oozes antipathy towards President Trump and the United States, with unflattering images of the U.S. President as well as “news reports” for his Mandarin-speaking audience.
Ching-Yi’s deceptiveness can be followed in the transcript of the exchange between him and President Trump from the White House Briefing Room on Wednesday:
Ching-Yi: We know many people around the world are paying close attention.
President Trump: Where you from?
Reporter: I’m from Taiwan.
Obviously, President Trump was not enquiring as to where Ching-Yi was born, but to the news outlet he was representing.
Ching-Yi – previously of the same Phoenix TV outlet represented by the other Chinese propagandist found masquerading as a reporter this week – didn’t want to disclose that, because it would reveal that he was yet another CCP propagandist inside the White House Press Briefing Room, and would highlight how Chinese operatives are within feet of the President of the United States.
