Behind a made-for-TV Hong Kong protest narrative,

• https://thegrayzone.com By Dan Cohen

Hong Kong's increasingly xenophobic protests are devolving into chaos with help from US government regime-change outfits and a right-wing local media tycoon with close ties to hardliners in Washington.

President Donald Trump tweeted on August 13 that he "can't imagine why" the United States has been blamed for the chaotic protests that have gripped Hong Kong. 

Trump's befuddlement might be understandable considering the carefully managed narrative of the US government and its unofficial media apparatus, which have portrayed the protests as an organic "pro-democracy" expression of grassroots youth. However, a look beneath the surface of this oversimplified, made-for-television script reveals that the ferociously anti-Chinese network behind the demonstrations has been cultivated with the help of millions of dollars from the US government, as well as a Washington-linked local media tycoon.
