Bill Bishop

Analyst | China

The backroom information broker for Western media.

Bill Bishop has been called “the China hands' China hand.” Few would dispute that title, even in a crowded field. The Beijing-based Bishop has earned a devoted following among China watchers, with an active Twitter feed and newsletter, Sinocism, that together offer journalists a steady stream of information, which often finds its way into their stories. Bishop speaks flawless Chinese, but his real talent is his ability to guide conversations about China, armed with only his laptop.
