Web Exclusive: extended interview with former Bloomberg editor Ben Richardson

In this extended "Reliable Sources" interview, Ben Richardson talks to Brian Stelter about the broader journalistic challenges of covering China.

Richardson, a longtime editor at Bloomberg News, recently resigned over what he called the "mishandling" of an investigative story about hidden financial ties between the families of Chinese officials and a wealthy businessman. A spokesman for Bloomberg declined to comment on the story or on Richardson's resignation.

    A few years ago, didn't CNN have a similar problem with its Cuban bureau? Didn't the bureau withhold some information because it was afraid of being kicked out of the country? Yet didn't that withheld information relate directly to controversies about the way Cuba's policies and practices were assessed?
