In recent weeks, Western press coverage has substantially changed in tone from earlier, one-sided demonized versions.  One article today which, while still criticizing Beijing on human rights + Tibet issues, concludes there is another side of the Olympics story yet to be heard.

    It is good that different viewpoints are now proliferating in the mainstream Western media. These different viewpoints were always in the Western media, however — just not the _mainstream_ media. In any case, if the Chinese who are so outraged by the biases of the Western media focused one-tenth of that outrage upon the Chinese media, China would be a lot better off in the long run.

    A small group of foreigners complaining about Tibet is hardly China’s real problem.

    Nice balanced article that showed self-awareness while not pulling punches. I also liked the initial commenter’s remarks.

    Not sure what you guys are talking about. I haven’t found any balance or movement toward balance yet. Perhaps you are just getting used to things the way they are…
