is there something like RT but for China? just to gain a general awareness of what Chinese people see on the news.

There is CGTN, but they are a fair bit worse than RT.

Xinhua (CNC) is the equivalent, don't see them pushing too hard for foreign viewers/readers though like RT does, their TV channels are available in the US but are all in Chinese and only Chinese people and people with business interests in China us it as far as I know.

China Daily and Global Times are the English PRC papers, GT is openly run by the party and CD is the controlled opposition. South China Morning Post is HK's big paper, not PRC controlled but the owners are friendly and there's a good amount of self-censorship.

Epoch Times is what Chinese people in foreign countries read. It's editors are all Falun Gong, very anti-PRC, and it has a pro-Trump slant oddly. Sorry to any mainland Chinese who read this board, its gonna be banned now that I mentioned it.

Global Times
this worse than expected

globaltimes.cn/content/1130350.shtml
French citizens live a relatively comfortable life thanks to generous welfare programs under which they are used to taking rather than giving. However, France must reform. Reform will inevitably affect vested interest groups and has a price. There is no free lunch in the world. If citizens only care about their own interests and oppose any reform that undermines their interests, will the country still have hope?

CGTN is pretty dry stuff. China isn't interested in destabilizing the U.S. like Russia but keeping foreign investment coming in, so coverage is mostly focused on foreign investors.

Qiusi Journal, a journal of the Communist Party's Central Committee, can be interesting: english.qstheory.cn

The Chinese Media Project is independent but even-handed and has a lot of coverage of political discourse within the Communist Party (one of the directors of the project started out writing for the People's Liberation Army Daily): chinamediaproject.org
Epoch Times is hard right-wing, because the Falun Gong is a fascist cult, and supporting Trump isn't odd for them. They also support AfD in Germany in their German-language version. One of their columnists is Trevor Loudon who is a member of the ZAP cult and runs a website that doxxes socialists in the U.S.

and supporting Trump isn't odd for them

I thought it was odd because it's the paper Chinese Americans read and there isn't much Trump support there. I did see a plane with a banner saying "ASIANS FOR TRUMP" the day before election day though.

RT isn't really what Russians see on the news. It's what the Russian government would like non-Russians to see on the news.

Do you mean that China Daily is intended to provide the sort of dog and pony fake dissent like you would see on Fox News for example or…?

For Russian news (as an English speaker) I like Steve Rosenberg of the BBC who does these old-school summaries of what the Russian newspapers are saying. Like going over them with a highlighter on video:

You're gonna get BBC bias on his feed but he plays what the Russian papers are saying pretty straight.

There are plenty of rich Chinese-American boomers who support Trump. Also a lot of Taiwanese-Americans are hardcore reactionaries for obvious reasons.

They don't watch the news in China. It's a totalitarian hellhole where everyone is wired to their social credit broadcast.

CGTN - formerly CCTV - is the place to go.
In terms of production and aestethics, the Chinks are way ahead the Russkies. Keep in mind they also spend a lot more money, though.
In terms of actual content, RT is not that great and quite often you can find alt-right, conservatard types airing their views. But sometimes it also gives space to voices more on the left. When I lived in England, where RT is free-to-air, I used to watch Going Underground hosted by Afshin Rattansi and Sputnik with the absolute madman George Galloway. Max Kaiser, even if he has a heavy lolbert slant, can be good entertainment. I also got to know Varou when he was a frequent host on Boom Bust like in 2013. Last but not least, Abby Martin had a show there. Jeez, she was (and she is) quite hot…
That said, the Chinks are basically peddling their own government propaganda and they always talk obsessively about money. Money, money, money, money… I mean, they have not just brought back capitalism, they have now entered hypercapitalism.
Anyway, you can watch three CGTN channels in England too. I had a Talk Talk box and you need to have a broadband connection. One is the English language news (and money) channel, the other two are about documentaries, talk shows, musical shows and they are in Chinkese, but one is subtitled both in English and Chinkese, if you are interested in learning the language.
Other networks pushing the points of view of other countries are:
Press TV (Iran) - it frequently has Roo as a guest commenting on international politics;
TeleSur (Vuvuzela and some other latino friends);
TRT (Ottoman Empire);
Al Jazeera (Qatar);
France 24 (quite self evident).
You can catch their streams on their websites or directly on Yootyoobe.

The English language news is all money money money because that's the only reason Westerners care about China and money is the only thing China wants from the West.

Their Chinese language news is hyper-nationalistic and ideological. They spent an entire year crying about some useless islands not long ago.

Not really, I wouldn't call it controlled opposition like Fox News/MSNBC depending on who's in power. Its more like GT puts up the party line and CD runs articles that allow some liberal nuance while supporting the government. China doesn't do controlled opposition.

This only applies to the English language CD. I'm Chinese its rabidly nationalist. Like how Al Jazeera English is nothing like its Arabic version, and Israel says one thing in English but doesn't sugar coat it in Hebrew.

I got the opposite impression. Well, the Chinese programs are really dry. The Russian programs are aimed squarely at the angry loner dude in Britain and America stewing in his apartment, with attractive hosts showing off their legs as they sit on raised platforms. Can't remember the name of the show but, like, Newsthrob With Natasha Humpatovich. George Galloway had the most hilarious intro as well, with the old Sputnik orbiting the world, then Galloway popping in and going "You're orbiting the world with ME: George Galloway ha ha yes!"

Xinhua

People's Daily

less than 1% of chinese people (mainland) can speak english.
chinese people who can speak english are a different class from those who cannot.

They are just afraid that something like that will occurr in China as well. The CPCh plays a dangerous game. On one hand they define themselves as staunch Marxist-Leninists and expose people to Marx in schools, media and universities, on the other they are going with their capitalist-liberal line where no deviations are allowed.

Clearly they are trying to have their cake and eat it as well, that's why they are piss-afraid people will actually get conscious about the whole thing.

The professor of an Asian History class I considered taking required students to read the Global Times to keep up with the CCP's narrative. The Global Times is itself a branch of the People's Daily, the main party organ (considered an authoritative mouthpiece of Party policy). GT, as the name suggests, has an international focus and has a belligerently nationalist tone.
