|Summary||Pete Hammer, a teacher in San Francisco who has been visiting China regularly since 2000, encourages teachers to seek out Chinese sources when teaching students about China. He illustrates the filters that he thinks U.S. media imposes on information from China by describing the experience of a Chinese friend who spent six months in military detention for filming a video of an underground Christian church meeting and the reaction to that experience by two U.S. journalists who Pete knew in Beijing.|
