A Chinese dissident has been arrested

This is the kind of image that the Chinese government should not be pursuing, in advance of this summer’s Olympic Games.

Note that his wife has still not been told where he is…some five days after he was picked up.

Ironically, his arrest came on the same day Benazir Bhutto was assassinated. And there might be an important media lesson here — the ability to tell a story through video and imagery (and consider how much of it has been available from Pakistan) can determine if a story makes it on to television.
