Event Details

Our panel of winners of The George Polk Awards covered criminality at the highest levels in China resulting in U.S. news outlets being hacked in retaliation. David Barboza’s NY Times series exposed the vast wealth accumulated by high officials, including the Prime Minister’s family fortune. Bloomberg reporter Fan Wenxin wrote about the scandal surrounding the murder of a British businessman by a high-placed Chinese leader. CBS News’ Holly Williams won for coverage, of activist Chen Guangcheng, who fled China after years of house arrest for bringing to light government-forced abortions under China’s one child policy.
