Wangchuk from NY :

Under US law for many years, agents of a foreign power have to register w/ the US Govt but they can still operate legally in the US. Xinhua, China Daily, CCTV, Global Times are all propaganda agents of the Chinese Govt/CCP.

Unlike in China, media freedom exists in the USA. The US doesn't ban these CCP propaganda agencies from operating in the US. Meanwhile the CCP bans RFA & VOA and many other media from operating in China. Now the pretense that Xinhua et al are genuine journalists is broken. This law just recognizes them for what they really are: agents of the Chinese Govt.
