Chinese Media Watch begins today

We begin our Olympic coverage today with the first installment of CPJ’s Chinese Media Watch. CPJ consultant Kristin Jones will analyze news coverage in China each weekday until the Games conclude. Jones will assess the level to which the Chinese media are able to freely report the news, and the amount of government censorship being imposed on the domestic press. China’s government pledged complete media freedom when it sought to host the Games. We’ll analyze whether that promise is being met.
