Digest: International or local, what kind of news do you like the most?


Ivan Zhai is the Social Media Editor at the South China Morning Post. Prior to his current position, Ivan spent 10 years working for the Guangzhou-based 21st Century World Herald and in the Post's Guangzhou bureau, covering Chinese politics, macroeconomics and online communities. In 2008, Ivan won an Alfred Friendly Press Fellowship. He shares his findings and thoughts on digital media, cognitive neuroscience and China on Twitter and Chinese microblogs as @ivanzhai.

The late Tip O'Neill, former Speaker of the House in the U.S. Congress, had said that "all politics is local". So is the news, at least the majority of it.

Why? The report by the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism and Internet & American Life Project (see the link below) will prove it for you.
