New Sinica podcast

In a China accustomed to glacial political change, Bo Xilai's dramatic fall from power this week has stunned observers nationwide. Joining us to help make sense of things is Guardian correspondent Tania Branigan, who helps review what exactly happened to the former Chongqing Party Secretary and once Politburo contender. Sinica then turns to a discussion of history, architecture and murder with fellow guest and soon-to-be-famous author Paul French, whose non-fiction murder mystery Midnight in Peking is set for a much broader international release next month.

Maureen Dowd's latest column in the New York Times is titled "Liz Cheney: Desist!" She argues that Republicans are irresponsibly "urging the dogs of war once more".

But I find the soft-pedaled jingoism in Thomas Friedman's latest column in the same newspaper to be more sinister - his reasonable-sounding laying down of a case for a preemptive strike. Friedman writes:

"If it comes to war, let it be because the ayatollahs were ready to sacrifice their whole economy to get a nuke and, therefore, America — the only country that can truly take down Iran’s nuclear program — had to act to protect the global system, not just Israel."

That sounds very much like the type of quiet argument Friedman was making in the run-up to the Iraq war, which was the last time he provided liberal Americans with some very sensible-sounding arguments as to why they should support a war on and in a country that turned out not to pose any kind of real threat to the U.S.

Anyone else receive this email from Google about the end of Google Wave with a rather hilarious typo in the 'sender' name?

"The other day, a friend told me something rather profound: “to see how civilized a country is, you just have to examine three things: First, look at how its people treat children; Second, look at how they treat women; Third, look at how they spend their free time.” - Hu Shi

Today is the 50th anniversary of the death of Hu Shi. See http://www.danwei.org/scholarship_and_education/hu_shi_thanks_the_imperialists.php for whole essay, translated by Julian Smisek

Story
Introduction
Jeremy Goldkorn founded the popular China media website Danwei.org, and acts as editor and publisher. The site has tracked the changes in China's media and Internet on a daily basis since 2003 and also produces video interviews with people in culture and the media in China. 

According to The London Review of Books, "Danwei gives a range of sources, news and opinions on China that no mainstream news organisation can match", while Public Affairs magazine called Goldkorn "one of China’s most prolific and powerful social media commentators."

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, he has lived in Beijing since 1995. He has lived in a workers dormitory, ridden a bicycle across Xinjiang and Tibet, and spent the last decade working in the Chinese media, advertising and Internet industries.  

Goldkorn produced the documentary film African Boots of Beijing. His writing has appeared in many Chinese and foreign publications including The GuardianThe New York Times, Life (生活), and Cosmopolitan's China edition (时尚杂志). He is a regular speaker at English and Chinese language conferences and events.
