On June 25, 2006, blog ESWN reported on an incidence of Kiddie Porn in Hong Kong, saying that “while this story has occupied Hong Kong headlines for days, the English-language media is doggedly determined that its readers do not need to know.”
By July 1, 2006, ESWN reports that SCMP (the South China Morning Post: the most popular English-language paper in Hong Kong) had indeed covered the story.
Is this the true, unleashed power of a blog? Nay, I say. Rather, it’s the power of someone who inhabits two worlds, east and west.
