Carrie Gracie: BBC China editor praised for resigning £135000 post over 'illegal pay culture'

Dear BBC Audience, My name is Carrie Gracie and I have been a BBC journalist for three decades. With great regret, I have left my post as China Editor to speak out publicly on a crisis of trust at the BBC. The BBC belongs to you, the licence fee payer. I believe you have a right to know that it is breaking equality law and resisting pressure for a fair and transparent pay structure. In thirty years at the BBC, I have never sought to make myself the story and never publicly criticised the organisation I love. I am not asking for more money. I believe I am very well paid already - especially as someone working for a publicly funded organisation. I simply want the BBC to abide by the law and value men and women equally. On pay, the BBC is not living up to its stated values of trust, honesty and accountability. Salary disclosures the BBC was forced to make six months ago revealed not only unacceptably high pay for top presenters and managers but also an indefensible pay gap between men and..

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” Underperforms In China

(Photo by Vianney Le Caer/Invision/AP) Star Wars: The Last Jedi received a chilly welcome during the film's opening weekend in China. The Disney-Lucasfilm production has been successful worldwide — The Last Jedi had the sixth biggest worldwide film opening since 2002, earning approximately $450 million. Outside of the U.S., The Last Jedi has done best in Western Europe. In the U.K. the film earned $102.9 million, followed by Germany with $73.5 million and France with $57.6 million. But the ticket sales from this weekend's opening in China were relatively low at $28.7 million. The Last Jedi had a significantly worse opening weekend in China than other recent films in the Star Wars franchise. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opened to $33 million on its first day in China in 2016, with a weekend total of $53 million. China's reluctance towards the franchise has history behind it — the original Star Wars wasn..

A Chinese Empire Reborn

Opinion|News Analysis The Communist Party’s emerging empire is more the result of force than a gravitational pull of Chinese ideas. A military parade in Beijing in 2015.CreditJonah M. Kessel/The New York Times Jan. 5, 2018I am the son of two empires, the United States and China. I was born in and raised around Washington in the Nixon-to-Reagan era, but my parents grew up in villages in southern China. My father was a member of the People’s Liberation Army in the 1950s, the first decade of Communist rule, before he soured on the revolution and left for Hong Kong. So it was with excitement that I landed in Beijing in April 2008 to start an assignment with The New York Times that stretched to almost a decade. I had just spent nearly four years reporting on the bloody failure of the American imperial project in Iraq, and now I was in the metropole that was building a new world order. China had entered a honeymoon phase with other nations. For years, anticipation had built for the 2008 Summ..

Dutch Sinologist Interprets China's Social Media for West

Is Chinese social media better at handling fake news than Facebook is? Is it a true measure of what really matters to ordinary Chinese, or is it just flush with gossip on celebrity hookups and divorces? These are questions that Dutch Sinologist Manya Koetse is asked every day. As the founder of the “What’s on Weibo” website, she is glued to Chinese social media, and says she starts scanning what’s trending the moment she wakes up. “In China, it’s a bit tricky to spot what’s trending because many of the important topics are discussed in private WeChat groups and they cannot be searched and aren’t open to the public,” she said, referring to the popular Chinese chat app that initially mimicked WhatsApp and Facebook but has become more versatile in recent years. “I have a few contributors who recommend certain topics that are being discussed in their WeChat groups or their friend’s moments. I’ll also check the top 20 trending topics on Weibo, and the most frequently used search terms.” Wei..
