In a polarized world where media divides, and religion and politics are taboo topics, Jessica Stone urges cultural competency and helping us to cross the divide.
JESSICA STONE’s work has appeared in: THE SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST, YAHOO FINANCE, STANSBERRY RESEARCH, PUBLIC RADIO INTERNATIONAL, USA TODAY, THE WASHINGTON TIMES, AND ACROSS THE US AT THE NATION’S CBS AND FOX STATIONS.
She picked up many of her cross-cultural observations while reporting for China Global Television in Brazil, China, Canada, and Vietnam, including the second summit between Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump in Hanoi. In 2016 and 2012, Jessica was the lead political reporter for the network during the U.S. presidential race. She also co-anchored coverage of the historic 2016 presidential race. Jessica also broke a series of reports on the death of Private Danny Chen, a Chinese-American soldier who was so badly hazed, he committed suicide. In 2013, she released her first documentary: Oil Sands at a Crossroads about Chinese investment in Canada’s oil sands production.
Jessica’s political coverage includes the 2016 and 2012 presidential races, the midterms in 2018, 2014, and 2010 – including an interview with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and live coverage from the unexpected three-way US Senate Race for Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski.
Jessica also covered the GTMO trial of Ibrahim Al-Qosi, an associate of Osama Bin Laden, and the aftermath of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake in Haiti. In 2009, she embedded with the U.S. Army’s 10 Mountain Division to cover the national presidential elections in Afghanistan. She is fluent in French and a member of Investigative Reporters & Editors.
