Hosted by

Bloomberg and the New York Times have been the main targets of a crackdown on western journalists in China, but they're not alone. We hear how Chinese officials are threatened by some news stories, what they're doing about it and what it will mean for what know about a hugely important world power. Also, officials' support of NSA Surveillance falters amid new revelations, and the strip-search of a female consular official in New York City has caused street protests in New Delhi and a diplomatic blow-up between the US and India. It's also divided the US Departments of State and Justice.
