Covering China: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Six New York Times Correspondents Discuss Reporting on China from the 1940s to Today

On February 5, 2013, ChinaFile celebrated its official launch by bringing together a panel of former and current New York Times correspondents, whose collective China experience spans the course of half a century, to discuss their coverage of China. ChinaFile’s publisher and Arthur Ross Director of Asia Society’s Center on U.S.-China Relations, Orville Schell, moderated.

The group included Seymour Topping, Fox Butterfield, Nicholas Kristof, Elisabeth Rosenthal, Joseph Kahn, and Edward Wong.

ChinaFile plans to periodically convene similar groups in the months to come. Next up: The Wall Street Journal.
