Nieman journalists quit program for China Olympics

From Reuters:

The prestigious Nieman Foundation for Journalism said on Thursday it was withdrawing as a partner in a program to help Chinese officials deal with the needs of a free press covering the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Former Nieman fellows objected to the foundation engaging with officials from China, considering the country’s past restrictions on the press, Nieman curator Bob Giles said.
