Hostile media organizations: Threat to Vietnam’s political stability (Part I)

15/04/2016


Recently, hostile forces against Vietnam have stirred up the scheme ‘peaceful evolution’ against the Party and State of Vietnam. "Peaceful evolution" is an important part of hostile forces’ global counter-revolutionary strategy aimed at combating socialist nations and movements for national independence in a concerted and complicated manner.
Peaceful evolution finds its way into all aspects of political, ideological, economic, cultural and social affairs by all means. The "peaceful evolution" strategy mainly consists of "non military" measures but it can be reinforced with rebellion, subversion, armed intervention and even invasion if opportunities permit.
In the whole scheme of peaceful evolution, the media, particularly including the press, of the enemy play an important part in opposing Vietnam. According to statistics, nearly 300 overseas magazines and newspapers were distributed in Vietnam in the first half of this year, 1.5 times more than a year ago. In addition, those who lack goodwill towards Vietnam expanded their ways of dissemination by establishing websites to distribute distortions about Vietnam.
Over the past years, hostile forces have established nearly 40 TV and radio stations to broadcast special Vietnamese-language programs and have published almost 50 newspapers, magazines and news bulletins in Vietnamese overseas.
In these hostile forces, we can see BBC, VOA, RFA, RFI, VOICE, SBTN as the most dangerous organizations against Vietnam’s national security. 
BBC is the British Broadcasting Corporation, a British public service broadcaster. It is headquartered at Broadcasting House in London. The Voice of America (VOA) is the official external broadcast institution of the United States federal government. The BBC and VOA provide programming for broadcast on radio, TV, and the Internet worldwide in English and some foreign languages, of course, in Vietnamese, with staffs holding an extreme anti-Vietnamese State and Party sentiment.
Meanwhile, Radio France Internationale generally referred to by its acronym RFI, is a French public radio service that broadcasts in Paris and all over the world. Radio Free Asia (RFA) is a private, nonprofit international broadcaster created by the U.S. government that broadcasts and publishes online news, information, and commentary to listeners in East Asia while "advancing the goals of U.S. foreign policy. RFA is funded by the Broadcasting Board of Governors(BBG), an independent agency of the United States government responsible for all non-military, international broadcasting sponsored by the U.S government.
About VOICE, SBTN and other websites, blogs of reactionary overseas Vietnamese are means of Viet Tan and other anti-government groups to sabotage Vietnam’s political stability. These outside forces are using "sophisticated, wicked plots and modern machinery and technological equipment to carry out sabotage activities against Vietnam.
Discussing hostile forces’ tricks in cyberspace, Associate Professor Truong Ngoc Nam, Rector of the Journalism and Communications Academy, provided several examples, such as; hostile forces hire experts to produce fake video clips, audio files and photos and then upload them to social network websites; use modern technology to edit and renew data for their negative purposes; and pay for quotes and images of famous figures to intentionally add to articles, in order to cheat online readers into believing what they read.
What is more, hostile overseas forces know how to exploit the internet and other mass media to broadcast false information and spread poisonous documents to the country.
They have repeatedly accused Vietnam of human rights violations, particularly violations of press freedom. To justify their allegations, they said that some people in Vietnam have been banned from using the Internet. From such groundless evidence, they hastily jumped to the conclusion that there is no press freedom in Vietnam. They even demanded that the Vietnamese State abolish regulations on use of the Internet and allow law breakers all available means of communications, including the Internet to distribute anti-government documents.
        Those above slanders and absurd demands are unacceptable because they interfere in Vietnam’s internal affairs. These actions not only violate the laws of an independent and sovereign country, but also international law. It is certain that these slanderous allegations convince nobody, because no one can deny the strong development of the Vietnamese press during the last 20 years of renovation. Vietnam now has 600 publications, and 90 percent of the nation has radio and television coverage. People have access to all the diverse communication systems of a modern society./. (to be continued)

We have to identify and clarify schemes and tricks used by hostile forces in their campaign against the Party and State, as well as propose ideas for approaches to more effectively combat hostile forces’ information operations.

Recently, hostile forces have increased their activities against the Party and State, especially RFA, RFI and hostile overseas Vietnamese press.

In terms of forces, they recruit many scholars and experts in ideology and psychology to oppose the nation in politics, thought, theory and culture.

Hostile forces’ tricks and attempts to distort information and use false and fake information in propaganda against Vietnam break Vietnamese law and moral values.

They seek to bring many poisonous and bad cultural products to Vietnamese people.

Vietnam's government should mobilize the whole political system and society for the combat against hostile forces’ plots and tricks in the information and cultural front.

Gentle Moon 16/4/16 08:13

They aim to spoil Vietnamese society by prevailing and leading people to wrong, bad and evil things.

Only Solidar 16/4/16 08:15

According to me, strong and clean Party organizations at all levels with capable and high-quality Party members could serve as an “unbreakable wall” denying the infiltration of any bad and poisonous information and cultural products.

I highly appreciate the role of the offical press and media in defeating the “peace evolution” strategy.

LawrenceSamuels 16/4/16 08:18

Facts show that hostile forces have been using increasingly malicious plots and tricks in the information and cultural front.

Pack Cassiopian 16/4/16 08:19

Serving as a sharp tool in the ideological struggle, the Vietnamese press has constantly criticised hostile viewpoints to rectify the deviated tendencies in Party members and other sections of the population.

Yeah, if we, media workers, are well prepared and highly combative, we will certainly smash the enemy’s scheme of peaceful evolution.
