Untitled[edit]

The quality of this page is pretty bad and needs to be fixed. He was kicked out becuase he published full photos of women having abortions including their faces in a Taiwanese journal. This is against anthropological ethics. I think he or his fans wrote this article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.169.197.2 (talk) 17:44, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

I agree. There is a lot of stuff published in the journal Science in 1983-5 which documents the reasons that Stanford refused him a doctorate: the photos was one thing, as was breaking the laws of China. This whole debate needs to be added in here I think —Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.217.6.6 (talk) 08:15, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

As I understand it, Stephen Mosher was kicked out of the Stanford Ph.D. program not because he was unqualified but because the Chinese government threatened not to allow any more Stanford students to go to China unless he was kicked out. His book exposed some unpleasant realities in the peasant commune where he had lived for several years, and the Chinese government was unhappy to have these revealed to the outside world. It was a cause celebre for a while. I note the previous commenters are anonymous and almost certainly from the PRC.Evangeline (talk) 23:36, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
Citation please? I was there at the time, covering the story froma journalistic perspective. His violation of all policies taught and published in his department would have gotten anyone kicked out.QueenofRods (talk) 02:38, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Commissioner of the US Commission on Broadcasting to China[edit]

I changed hia "credentials" at the beginning of the story from "Commissioner of the US Commission on Broadcasting" to "Commissioner of the US Commission on Broadcasting to China", because I can find no evidence of a general "Commissioner of the US Commission on Broadcasting". Even the "Commissioner of the US Commission on Broadcasting to China" I can only appear to find reference to in anti-choice stories specifically referring to Mosher, so I suspect it's a conservative group, but I can find almost no information about it. 68.190.126.112 (talk) 15:24, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
