In 1843, Scottish manufacturer James founded the magazine the Economist, published every Saturday. It stands on independent position, famous for its specialization, sharp point and high quality.

Since the 4th issue of 2012, there is a separate column for China. China has become the second country which owns a separate column in Economist, besides of US. As Economist says, this is the first time to set up a column for one country after 1942, when the US column was founded, which reflects that China really regard to be international force much.
Chinese new government took over in 2013, since then, economic reform, anti-corruption campaign, institute decentralization, military shake-up and other policies have been highly-focused by foreign media. Based on the communication theory, the media constructs the virtual reality which largely determines what people think of the actual reality. Being the major media in British, Economists has the huge own advantage of spreading information. So the aim of analyzing news report about Chinese government on Economists unfolds in the following four aspects. First, we can have an idea about how foreigners feel about China. Besides, compared with the “hard” publicity before, the new government behaves differently, for example, the nickname of Mr. Xi, the cartoon of first lady and new year address. Whether this new type of publicity makes effect can be found in the news report. Third, news report on Economists reflects both accomplishments and deficiency of Chinese new government, the latter one often ignored by domestic media. Therefore, we can be more conscious of mistakes. By analyzing that, we can know where is the block. At last, domestic media can draw on the experience of Economists，improving its competitiveness.
