A Washington, D.C., area radio station has been promoting Chinese Communist Party propaganda to listeners for years after it was paid $4.4 million to do so, according to a report.
The Potomac Media Group received millions from China's International Communication Planning Bureau over the past two years and aired Chinese content on Potomac Media's WCRW, its AM station, according to a series of filings.
The station aired a series of talk shows portraying China positively, Potomac Media Group admitted in filings with the Department of Justice.

The group worked directly with a sect of the Communist Party's Propaganda Department, which could reportedly review any broadcasts and verify programming.
Potomac Media Group was also required to report its audience reach, feedback, and "evaluation from international organizations" to the Chinese Planning Bureau, according to the filings.
China has a history of influencing the media, and it paid Potomac Media Group the $4.4 million from July 2019 to August 2021.
