If you don't know Xinhua... soon will.

I can't wait to see how the Western media react to the monster that is awakening in China -- the Xinhua news agency is going global.

The criticisms -- justified, of course -- will go something like this: "Xinhua isn't really a news agency; it's a propaganda tool for the government. The people who work there aren't journalists; they're merely interested in spouting the official government line and making sure they overwhelm media flow with their fake news."

I see. Think about that line of argumentation for a minute or two. Then get back to me.
