Amid Gaza Guterres Partied with China State Media Lowest Turnout as UNCA Blocks Press

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

UN GATE, Feb 9 – In the midst of the war in Gaza, with the UN failing as on Ukraine, the tragic corruptions was mirrored in farce at the UN Correspondents Association garish ball on December 15.

They charged their members, including Iran and China state media, $150 - and much more to others.

The event has previously charged Chinese businessmen like convicted Ng Lap Seng money for photos with the UN Secretary General. Who paid this time?

Jump cut to February 2024, when UNCA published the ballot for its Executive Committee "election." In fine UN fashion there are no more candidates then spots: a clean slate, everyone will be elected. This includes, now, two representatives of China state media.

  In fine CCP fashion, UNCA after publication of the above blocked on X / Twitter, photo here - in the name of the officers, reps of AP, NPR, France 24 and Le Monde.

On February 9, the desultory results: an all time low "turnout" of 45, and some "winners" receive less than half of those votes, despite there being no competition.

The UN continues to ban all journalists from Taiwan, and to ban Inner City Press with Melissa Fleming and now Ian Phillips formerly of AP refusing to answer pro bono law firms' letters seeking the application of free press principles to the UN. We'll have more on this.
