China's African Narrative: Party versus Commercial Media

The Conversation published on 21 December 2016 an article titled "China's New Commercial Media Is Complicating the Party's Good News Narrative about Africa" by Xiaoling Zhang, University of Nottingham.

The article is based on an upcoming book chapter that compares the coverage of Africa in the CPC People's Daily and the more commercialized Southern Weekly. It concludes the two Chinese papers have very different portrayals of Africa. Coverage about Africa in the People's Daily is largely positive while the Southern Weekly presents a more narrow and negative view of the continent.
