Fall is upon us and Tea Time is back! Join Jackson Center President Kristan K. McMahon and Radio Free Asia President Bay Fang to discuss the importance of a free press, free speech, and the impact of Radio Free Asia.

She spent most of her career in print journalism, as the Beijing Bureau Chief and covering the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq for US News and World Report, and later as the Diplomatic Correspondent for the Chicago Tribune.
