The differences between CCTV and British media

This picture is drawn and edited by myself.
CCTV is China Central Television. My course is media management; usually I would like pay more attention on journalism. I have found there are some differences between China Central Television and British media, like BBC.
For example:
After food poisoning incident:
British media probably will say, Government should self-reflect, intensify supervision, they can not shirk its responsibility.
CCTV will say, citizens should improve the ability of identifying the counterfeit goods, and do not buy expired food
After seized a corrupt official, and recovered the money:
British media probably will say, it shows there are still loopholes in the supervise system.
CCTV will say, supervisory authority detect problems, and recover the huge losses.
After coal mine collapse or explosion:
British media probably will say the official of government security has resigned.
CCTV will say accidents caused high attention of the leader of security authority; we must investigate legal responsibilities of the relevant people.
After the farmers do not enough money to go to hospital:
British media probably will say the approval rate of relevant officials has been reduced, outcry among the public.
CCTV will say the relevant officials go to the countryside to see the farmers; they are the people’s good public servants.
There are both good things and bad things all in British media’s report.
There are only good things in CCTV.
There are not too much news about education and health care in British media’s report, but the education and health system are considerate.
There is too much news about education and health care in CCTV, but there are still too much people do not have enough money to go to school or hospital.
Appearances of British media office are simple, but the news is practical.
An appearance of CCTV office is huge, but we all can guess the result of the news.
