Meet the Journalist: Richard Bernstein in Taiwan

This video was shot on July 23, 2015, outside the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan. Richard Bernstein has been traveling to Taiwan since 1972, when he was a Chinese-language student there. He always viewed the place "as a kind of David struggling to survive against a bullying mainland Goliath." His recent trip to Taiwan made him feel that, despite the odds, Taiwan is holding out pretty well.
