Hu Shuli, editor in chief of China’s Caijing magazine, received the 2007 Louis M. Lyons Award for Conscience and Integrity in Journalism. The Class of 2007 chose her in recognition of her efforts to build one of the few credible news outlets in China. The fellows honored Hu for her “insistence on old-fashioned journalistic standards of factuality” despite the risk of censorship and closure of her magazine.
Hu, who began Caijing (Business and Finance Review) in April 1998, has more than 25 years of editorial experience with media organizations. She was honored at a dinner at Lippmann House in May. Li Xin, Washington bureau chief for Caijing, accepted the award on her behalf. Moisés Naím, editor in chief of Foreign Policy magazine, presented the evening’s remarks.
