How to Cover the Olympics: A Reporter’s Cliché Book.

Best newspapers on China

In A Reporter’s Guide To Covering The Olympics. Time China Blog gives us a tongue in cheek guide on how to hit every cliché when reporting on China. Sadly, much of it does read almost line for line of what passes for coverage in so many Western publications.

Fortunately, the entire Western daily press does not follow this guide and if you want good coverage of China I suggest you read the following newspapers:

1. Wall Street Journal
2. Washington Post
3. Financial Times
4. New York Times (though its headlines seem oftentimes tend to follow Elegant’s guide).
5. The Times
6. The Guardian

Any others?

What about Canada and/or Australia?
