If you want to watch the Beijing Olympics with a little less guilt, one way to do so might be to keep tabs on what will be the most hotly contested competition during the Games--journalists versus the Chinese government.
The Committee to Protect Journalists is planning on going all out to expose any and all issues that journos face in China. On its blog.
It will be worthwhile read during the next 26 days.
Note: If anyone comes across a good independent blog giving consistent coverage to the Games please drop me a line (firstname.lastname@example.org).
