China Live offers a unique insider’s view of two of the most important forces shaping our era—the rise of global satellite news and the rise of China. Exploring not only how events shape television, but how TV can shape the news as it unfolds, CNN Hong Kong bureau chief Mike Chinoy recounts his experiences in key political conflicts around the world, from Northern Ireland, Lebanon, and Afghanistan to Indochina, the Philippines, and North Korea. Chinoy focuses especially on China, where he was instrumental in CNN’s unprecedented live broadcasts of the student uprising and army crackdown in Tiananmen Square in 1989—a turning point in modern journalism that played a critical role in shaping international perceptions of China. China Live remains a compelling account of the life of an award-winning foreign correspondent and a revealing glimpse inside the world of television news.
