- By Isaac Stone FishIsaac Stone Fish is FP's Asia editor. A Mandarin speaker, he lived in China for seven years before moving to Washington, D.C. His articles have also appeared in the New York Times, the Economist, the Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times, and he has appeared as a commentator on MSNBC, the BBC, NPR, Al Jazeera, and PRI, among others.
It happens to the best of us. Part of the World section in the English language website of Xinhua, China’s premier state news agency, is stuck in 2006: Hank Paulson has just been named treasury secretary, President Bush insists on his war policy, and Iran is ready to restart nuclear talks. No articles on Blackberries sweeping the world or Lost recaps, unfortunately.
