China cuts CNN's feed as David McKenzie tells Anderson Cooper about being roughed-up while covering Beijing trial

A Chinese activist who leads a campaign to expose government corruption went on trial today in Beijing. CNN’s David McKenzie was there to cover the high-profile case. Chinese officials intent on keeping the media away roughed him up, and it was captured on video. David spoke with Anderson last night  but that interview wasn’t seen in China; censors cut CNN's feed when the segment aired on AC360°.

CNN Worldwide Announces New Freedom Project Programming for Second Year

Collaboration with NGOs Helps Free Trafficked Persons

As CNN Worldwide marks the first year of the CNN Freedom Project, the network today announced a sweeping slate of new digital and television journalism for the project for the second half of 2012.  Launched in mid-2011, the CNN Freedom Project shines light on the efforts of individuals and organizations working to fight the injustices of forced labor, sex trafficking, unauthorized organ harvesting, and other forms of human trafficking in the United States and around the world.

“The CNN Freedom Project marked a decision by our news organization to take a stand on an issue,” said Tony Maddox, executive vice president and managing director of CNN International.  “As journalists, we have resisted taking positions, but with our global resources, how could CNN not be involved in raising awareness to these horrible injustices?  And, through our collaborations with heroic NGOs working in these areas, we have pushed for change and are seeing tangible results: more than 1,000 people found freedom following a CNN Freedom Project story.”
