This week on Sinica, we go to the Olympics in recognition of what is unarguably the biggest story coming out of London: the spectacular performance of Chinese swimming sensation Ye Shiwen and the subsequent allegations of doping and anti-competitive behavior by the international and particularly American media which has - unsurprisingly - prompted a defensive backlash throughout the Chinese Internet.
Beyond the various Olympic scandals, we also turn our attention to other China stories that have slipped more unnoticed in the press. Hosting our discussion this week is Jeremy Goldkorn
. We are delighted to have him joined in our studios this week by Will Moss, popular blogger and founder of Imagethief
. Also in our studio for his first time on the show is Andrew Jacobs
, whose name discerning readers will recognize as a leading China correspondent for the New York Times.
