Cruz says every broadcast should be closed with ‘this message was paid for by the Communist Party of China’

Several prominent political figures, including Ted Cruz have slammed NBC News for consistently repeating Communist Chinese government talking points in their output.
The Texas Senator linked to an NBC News article which read “U.S. reports 1,264 coronavirus deaths in over 24 hours. Meanwhile in China, where the pandemic broke out, not a single new coronavirus death was reported.”
Cruz tweeted, “Under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, 22 USC 611 et seq, I’m pretty sure NBC is now legally obligated to close every broadcast with—and append to every tweet—’this message paid for by the Communist Party of China.’”
Joining the Senator in bashing the network was GOP Congressman Doug Collins, who linked to the same piece and wrote “Strange that the media is so skeptical about hydroxychloroquine, yet so willing to believe propaganda from the Chinese Communist Party.”
“They hate @realdonaldtrump more than they love America.” Collins added.
The Representative from Georgia fired off a second tweet noting that China’s numbers are clearly fake, yet NBC is repeating them in order to “undercut” President Trump.
Joining Cruz and Collins was former South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Haley.
The former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations tweeted “Come on @NBCNews. This is embarrassing. You discredit yourself when you tout China’s propaganda. #KnowYourSource”
Meanwhile, it has emerged that a Chinese Communist mouthpiece who was able to ask President Trump questions at the White House earlier this week is a member of the White House Correspondents Association.
“As a result, she became a member of the White House Foreign Press Group because she not only is a member of the WHCA, but also has a ‘hard pass’ to be in the White House Briefing Room that was granted to her by the current administration,” said White House Foreign Press Group’s secretary Richard Latendresse.
“This reporter is therefore part of our regular rotation of members who have access to our seat during press briefings in the White House,” he told The Daily Caller.
Senator Cruz pointed to the exchange between the reporter and Trump, labelling it “disgraceful and reckless” that Phoenix TV is allowed into the press briefings.
