101 East - China’s TV Confessions

Please Log in or Register to watch this video.

Peter Humphrey had been held by Chinese authorities for almost two months when he says he was sedated and brought before television cameras to "confess" in August 2013. Human rights activists say Humphrey, a British corporate investigator who was jailed for almost two years in China, is just one of dozens of alleged lawbreakers who have been subjected to this kind of treatment since 2013. As China seeks to extend the global reach of its state-owned TV network, 101 East investigates the growing calls for the international community to hold its journalism to international standards.
