Citizen Journalists in China

From the documentary "High Tech, Low Life" by Steve Maing

Steve Maing discusses his documentary about citizen reporters in China, “High Tech, Low Life.” It follows the journey of two of China’s first citizen reporters as they travel the country covering underreported news and social issue stories. Armed with laptops, cell phones and digital cameras, they become independent one-man news stations while learning to navigate China’s new social media landscape and censorship regulations. “High Tech, Low Life” is playing at the IFC Center through January 15.

Leonard is sick and should be home or in a dry air, warm environ to clear out those lungs so he can heal! Selfishly from a listeners pint of view It's disconcerting and painfully awkward to hear suppressed coughs and wobbly vocal flucuations ruining this interview and poor Steve's 15mins of radio glory...

Feel bad for Leonard but better he heal for a few more days and have a well groomed back up at the ready to do fill in's for any inevitable sick days. We'll survive... I nominate Alec Baldwin.
