Ladies and Gentlemen,
Comrades and Friends,
How do we know what we know about China? The images most Americans hold of China were shaped by news coverage. Our multipart documentary series Assignment: China focuses on the journalists who have described the remarkable changes in China since the 1940s. Two of the most influential moments in this history were the Nixon visit in 1972 and the Tiananmen demonstrations of 1989. The correspondents interviewed for the series have helped news consumers understand how China's opening up and subsequent economic rise have reshaped the world.
