Former Beatles Manager Paid Millions to Boost Chinese Regime in U.S.

WFB: The Beatles manager who orchestrated the ill-advised wedding between John Lennon and Yoko Ono is now the Chinese government’s pointman to build ties between Beijing and American journalists and officials.

Peter Brown, who managed the world-famous band until its disbandment in 1970, now uses his public relations skills to advance the interests of the Chinese regime. Brown, through his firm BLJ Worldwide, has arranged dozens of American reporters to visit China on all-expenses-paid trips and placed pro-Chinese op-eds in top U.S. outlets.

The Chinese embassy in the United States and the China-U.S. Exchange Foundation (CUSEF)—a registered foreign agent with close ties to the Chinese Communist Party—have paid nearly $4 million to Brown’s firm since 2016. As part of the contract with the embassy, Brown’s team provided media training to Chinese diplomats, monitored news reports about China, and assisted “crisis communications” on key issues such as the trade war and the annual Communist Party Congress. read more

  1. Isn’t a reporter taking an all expenses paid trip so they will write a puff pice a conflict of interest?

    And, if they had any brains, you would think they would know better than to take anything from a communist government. The reporters aren’t going to write glowing reports because they were impressed; they are going to write them because they are being blackmailed.

  2. This man did two things that are unforgivable:
    1. He provided a propaganda channel for the ChiCom government to corrupt the west.
    2. He inflicted Yoko One on humanity.

  4. “….until its disbandment in 1970,……”
    That was 50 years ago! How old IS this fossil?
    And the initials of his PR firm seems appropriate, BLJ (BLow Job) Worldwide.
