If you look at the portraits of Chinese leaders written up by mainstream Western media in the past, the impression you get is that they would be authoritarian, poker-faced, illegitimate and power-thirsty. When the leader of the Communist Party of China Xi Jinping was given a second mandate, the doubts in the Western media grew louder surrounding his so-called concentration of power. In fact, ever since the anti-graft campaign he initiated a couple of years ago, he has been accused of using it to sideline opponents to gain a stronger grip on the country. Now, such doubts again capture Western front pages. 

2017-10-25 19:52 GMT+8

What the western media is very good at is to play with words.
