BUSTED: TV Channel Pushing FAKE Amelia Earhart Story Blaming Japan has TIES TO CHINA
We live in an era of fake news that’s financed in part by foreign interests. But fake news isn’t enough for them — now they’re trying to rewrite history. History (formerly known as The History Channel) recently aired a special that attempted to blame Japan for the death of Amelia Earhart. At first, majority of viewers seemed to buy the story — the only notable media critic that said it all seemed way too fishy was Mike Cernovich. None-the-less, the entire narrative quickly unraveled. Days after the special first aired, evidence emerged which proved that the image had actually been published two years before Earhart’s death, meaning that History‘s revisionist documentary was 100% false.
So the question is, why did History attempt to rewrite history? Was it for ratings? Possibly. But maybe it was for a more sinister reason. Perhaps, it was to please a foreign power to get access to their domestic market. It turns out that History is 50% owned by Disney. And guess who Disney channel is trying to curry favor with so that they can get access to a new domestic market worth billions, annually? You probably guessed it: China.
Back in 2016, the New York Times published an article titled, “How China Won the Keys to Disney’s Magic Kingdom“, that said:
Disney had pushed China too hard, putting the company’s plans for a new theme park here in limbo. Now, Robert A. Iger wanted to kick the yearslong negotiations into high gear.
Mr. Iger, Disney’s chief executive, took a corporate jet to Shanghai in February 2008 to meet with the city’s new Communist Party boss, Yu Zhengsheng. Over dinner at a state guesthouse, Mr. Iger offered a more conciliatory approach, setting the tone for the next phase of talks.
After that, Disney substantially dialed back its demands. In addition to handing over a large piece of the profit, the control-obsessed company would give the government a role in running the park. Disney was also prepared to drop its longstanding insistence on a television channel.
For Disney, such moves were once unthinkable. Giving up on the Disney Channel meant abandoning the company’s proven brand-building strategy. “We’re kidding ourselves if we think we’re going to get everything we want,” Mr. Iger recalled saying at the time.
Rewriting history was once thought of as unthinkable, too. Could it be that perhaps Disney was willing to give up some of it’s integrity for a shot to get access to the massive Chinese market? Maybe Disney knows demonizing the enemies of China — such as Japan — could curry favor with China? Further down in the NYT article, it states:
But Disney is sharing the keys to the Magic Kingdom with the Communist Party. While that partnership has made it easier to get things done in China, it has also given the government influence over everything from the price of admission to the types of rides at the park.
From the outset, Disney has catered to Chinese officials, who had to approve the park’s roster of rides and who were especially keen to have a large-scale park that would appeal to more than children. The Shanghai resort, which will ultimately be four times as big as Disneyland, has a supersize castle, a longer parade than any of the other five Disney resorts around the world, and a vast central garden aimed at older visitors.
