Zhai Minglei is an award-winning journalist and former reporter for Southern Weekend, a mainland newsweekly regarded internationally for its tough reporting of corruption and social issues. After leaving Southern Weekend, Zhai launched Minjian, a non-profit magazine for China’s NGO community. The magazine was shut down by authorities in 2007. Zhai now publishes his own online “newspaper,” 1bao.org. In 2001, Zhai’s expose of corruption within Project Hope, one of China’s best-known non-profit programs, was selected as one of the year’s top news reports by Southern Weekend.
