George (Guangren) Bao’s journey to the West is different from that of the Chinese pioneers who came to San Francisco in the 1880s for the gold rush. As one of the 3.8 million Chinese Americans, George came to the United States in the 1980s when China’s door to the United States was open and a generation of educated youth came to the United States to learn from the West. His story tells how the first generation of new immigrants from China came to live and work in the United States at a time when China was in its historical transitioning period. George walked out of a small village in China to the suburbs in Los Angeles. The 6,685-mile journey is accompanied by hardships, struggles, good fortune, blessings, and opportunities. As a news reporter, his journey to the West comes step-by-step with the marks of the history China has gone through. To learn the history of New China is vague and somewhat boring, but to count his footsteps will be more specific, more interesting. George recalled his visit to Beijing at age sixteen to see Chairman Mao, along with millions of “Red Guards,” at the start of the Cultural Revolution in China. He tells how he was selected to be a “worker-peasant-soldier student” to study English at Anhui University and how he became a graduate student at the Institute of Journalism at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. His first assignment as Washington correspondent in 1984 enabled him to see the tremendous gap between China and the United States. George’s second journey to the West in 1991 finally makes the United States as his second home country. He tells the differences in reporting for the Chinese state news agency and in reporting for the independent Chinese newspaper in the United States. As a Chinese American, his life is closely related with the ups and downs of both China, where he was born, and the United States, where he has been naturalized. That’s why he sincerely hopes that the United States will get along well with China and that the development of China is beneficial to the Chinese Americans like him, and he is willing to work toward that goal.

Investigative journalism emerged in China in the 1980s following Deng Xiaoping’s media reforms. Over the past few decades, Chinese investigative journalists have produced an increasing number of reports in print or on air and covered a surprisingly wide range of topics which had been thought impossible by the standards of the Communist era. In the 2010s, however, investigative journalism has been replaced by activist journalism. This book examines how, with the aid of new media technologies and in response to new calls for social responsibility, these new-era journalists vigorously seek to expand the scope of their journalism and their capacity as journalists. They tend to perceive themselves as more than professional journalists, and their activities are not limited to the physical boundaries of newsrooms. They are not only detached observers of society but also engaged organizers of social movements—they are social activists as well as responsible journalists who challenge state power and the party line and point to the limitations of the more traditional conceptions of journalism in China. This book analyzes how journalism in China has been gradually transformed from a tool of the state to a means of broadening calls for democratic reform.

The first in-depth, authoritative discussion of the role of the press in China and the way the Chinese government uses the media to shape public opinion China's 1.3 billion population may make the country the world's largest, but the vast majority of Chinese share remarkably similar views on these and a wide array of other issues, thanks to the unified message they get from tightly controlled state-run media. Official views are formed at the top in organizations like the Xinhua News Agency and China Central Television and allowed to trickle down to regional and local media, giving the appearance of many voices with a single message that is reinforced at every level. As a result, the Chinese are remarkably like-minded on a wide range of issues both domestic and foreign.
