US reaction to Chinese balloon ‘hysterical’, says Chinese media


The way the Joe Biden administration handled the Chinese balloon case highlighted how ‘immature, irresponsible and hysterical’ the US was in dealing with the matter, Chinese publication DailyChina said on Friday.

According to the author, US officials, media and political pundits claimed that the device was a “spy balloon” without any evidence and despite China’s explanation that it was a meteorological research balloon. The author maintained that it did not make sense for China to spy on the US using a balloon the size of three school buses when “modern surveillance satellites can do a much better job”.
