Engage & Enlighten
This chapter provides resources on Niche News Outlets, Blogs suggested Books as well as Podcasts. In an era of “fake news”, inaccurate (and sometimes plain false) information circulating on social media, it’s important to question everything you read. This especially applies to Western news outlets on China. Where is the information coming from, and what is the publisher’s agenda? Do the facts come from credible sources? Why is the article in question being published, and for what audience?
To engage with China and to be enlightened, reading from different news sources brings to light varied agendas, opinions and perspectives which is not only interesting in itself, but offers a more holistic picture of what is actually going on.
