New York Times’ Michael Anti on Blogging in China – Video

November 29th, 2007

QuickTime Video

Michael Anti, New York Times Beijing bureau researcher and fellow at Harvard University’s Nieman Foundation, was the guest speaker this week at the Berkman Center’s Luncheon Series.

Anti discussed how the recent surge in blogging has changed the state-run media landscape of China and altered the centralized control the ruling party holds over free expression in the world’s most populace nation.

Michael Anti (Zhao Jing), a Nieman Follow at Harvard, is a journalism researcher with the Beijing Bureau of New York Times. He runs several political columns on Chinese top newspapers and magazines. He was a war reporter for a Chinese newspaper in Baghdad in March 2003. His well-known Chinese political blog was shutdown by Microsoft in December 2005. In the wake of this case, he turned to run a collaborative online weekly magazine on International politics. He is an international jury member of Deutsche Welle’s Best of Blogs competition in 2005, 2006 and 2007.

    Thanks for sharing, though.
