Documentary Exposes U.S. Hypocrisy on Human Rights
   2016-03-14 06:50:24    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Xu Leiying

A Chinese documentary has highlighted the United States' double standards on human rights-related issues.

The airing of the documentary comes just days after the US, along with 11 other countries, openly criticized China under the pretext of human rights at the UN Human Rights Council.

The 45-minute TV program aired by the state-run China Central Television reported evidence that the U.S. was trampling on the human rights of its own people in all walks of life.

In one example, the documentary showed how the US Federal Bureau of Investigation - the FBI - forced Internet companies to provide client information without a court approval, while the country routinely probed into other countries' private affairs.

The CCTV documentary was based on extensive media reports both inside and outside the U.S., and included interviews with many human rights experts from several countries.

One expert from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences said the United States was prone to being condescending, in the belief that it had the best system, and best human rights record. As a result, the expert said, America tended to find fault with other countries.
