ESWN: Citizen Reporters On The Huankantou Incident

From EastSouthWestNorth blog:

The event took place on early April 10, and these posts occurred between April 12 and April 13. Thereafter, all Internet posts on the subject were deleted by the Internet Nanny. So this was a brief window of opportunity in which free exchange of information was permitted to occur. These posts are also interesting because they illustrate the interaction between government and citizenry in Undercover Internet Commentators on the Chinese Internet. Among the commentators were a couple of people who were present at the scene from the government side. You can read this fascinating exchange among the people, including both their perspectives as well as the tone and style of interaction. But just as we were getting both sides of the story, the rhetorical devices got in the way and communication was broken off. If the conversation had continued, there might have been a collaborative effort to ferret out whether two elderly ladies were really killed and other details.
