Daily Telegraph China blog

Richard Spencer, the Beijing correspondent of Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper has a blog: Richard Spencer. Unfortunately, the URL is viciously anti-mnemonic so bookmark it if you like it.

The blog was found via the Danwei referral log. In his post, China's internauts find the kitten killer, Spencer acknowledges and links to Danwei. That's a nice gesture: it's becoming quite common to find, in mainstream media reports, translated phrases and information that could only have come from Danwei (and other China blogs); the source is rarely acknowledged.
