Schlesinger: ‘Media, Murdoch, and social responsibility’

CPJ board member David Schlesinger, who is the chairman of Thomson Reuters in China, delivered a speech today at a conference sponsored by Caixin magazine. He touched on several current issues, and found lessons in the News of the World case that are relevant to journalists everywhere. And I particularly like his description of China’s media which, for all CPJ’s criticism, remains dynamic and growing.

UPDATED: We’ve updated to say the conference was sponsored by Caixin, rather than by Sun Yatsen University, as first noted.
