China has been using a variety of methods to infuse foreign news reports with a pro-China bias, as journalists Louisa Lim and Julia Bergin explain in this piece for The Guardian.

Nonetheless, Lim and Bergin’s five-month investigation provides an invaluable glimpse into the new world of information warfare.
