The past few months have seen drastic restrictions on American journalists in China and Chinese journalists in the United States. On July 16, 2020, The National Committee’s Young China Professionals (YCP) held an event to go behind the byline and hear candid reflections from two journalists who have been at the front lines of reporting in the United States and China. Olivia Zhang is the chief U.S. correspondent for Caixin Media and Amy Qin is a China correspondent for The New York Times. They reflected on how they have navigated a tightening media landscape, shed light on the costs of politicizing journalism, and predicted potential impacts on international reporting.
