Katharine Q. Seelye: Chinese Officials to Get Press-Relations Training

From the New York Times, via Traveller’s Tales blog:

Several people attending a reunion of Nieman Foundation journalism fellows at Harvard over the weekend said they were surprised to learn that the prestigious program had agreed to conduct a training session for Chinese officials on how to deal with the media during the 2008 Olympics, to be held in Beijing.

About 40 Chinese officials are to visit Harvard at the end of June for a weeklong training session. Bob Giles, curator of the Nieman Foundation, said he was helping plan a program on topics including the First Amendment, how a free press operates and what the Chinese can expect that journalists will want to know.
