New York Times publishes piece by head of CCP-linked think tank on heels of Gordon Chang’s stark warning

The piece, headlined “It’s Time to Offer Russia an Offramp. China Can Help With That,” initially described author Wang Huiyao as “the founder and president of the Center for China and Globalization, a nongovernmental think tank based in Beijing.” After the Times was called out on social media, Wang’s description was altered to state that he also “advises the Chinese government in that capacity,” but no correction or explanation was provided to readers. 

It also did not mention his affiliation with China’s United Front Work Department, which operates under the jurisdiction of the Chinese Communist Party.

The New York Times was criticized on Monday for publishing an essay by the head of a Communist China-linked think tank without initially disclosing his affiliation
