Team Obama’s deputy campaign manager directed her 34,197 Twitter followers Friday to a “Must read” article published by a Chinese propaganda outlet.
Stephanie Cutter, one of the Obama campaign’s top officials, tweeted a link to the Xinhua news outlet, a Chinese propaganda front that reports directly to Communist Party.

The so-called “must read” article, the veracity of which is dubious, alleges that Republican Mitt Romney profits from Chinese companies.
Some Twitter users did not appreciate Cutter’s shout-out to a Communist-run media outlet, responding to her tweet: “They're almost as communist as you.”
