During the outbreak of pneumonia, we can discover a series of exaggerated and even untrue foreign media reports on China. Thus, it can be seen that western countries still have prejudice and misunderstanding towards China, which makes us wonder why this is the case. This paper analyzes why the west is biased against China based on the foreign media reports of this epidemic and the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China mainly from these four aspects of analysis: Ideological and political differences, Friction in economic development, Chinese and western cultural differences, China threat theory. Even some foreign media reports, which we are not quite satisfied with, to some extent can also promote us to find out the gaps and make up for the problems. We hope this article can provide some inspiration for the coordination of Sino-western relations.
