Li Honggu

September 2004 — Li, a veteran Chinese journalist, is news editor at Lifeweek, a leading weekly newsmagazine. Lifeweek infuriated censors in 2003 by running a feature story about military physician Jiang Yanyong, who became a national hero by exposing the government’s attempt to cover-up the outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. A former political reporter, Li worked 14 years at Wuhan’s Yangtze Daily before joining Lifeweek in 1999.
