The Inside Story of China's CCTV Journalist

China's former CCTV producer Wang Qinglei details his experience of working in the state TV in the past ten years. He says: 

The real reason for the defeat of China’s traditional media, including CCTV, is not that they have no way to resist the assault of new media, but rather that, in the difficult environment of public opinion, they lack the courage to speak the truth, to be responsible to the nation and the people, thus earning the respect and trust of the public.
