In class this week we've been focusing on the role of the journalist and media during the time of war. What about during our current time of protests?
In todays New York Times, there is an article about China's limitations on foreign journalists, where the government goes so far as to threaten the journalists to confiscate their visas if they do not comply with the limitations.
