John Bussey, Washington Bureau Chief, The Wall Street Journal
John Bussey is the Washington bureau chief of The Wall Street Journal. He is responsible for the team of reporters covering the nation's capital, foreign and domestic policy, regulation, and national politics. Bussey has worked for the Journal since 1983 in positions that included deputy managing editor, foreign editor, economics editor, Tokyo bureau chief and editor in chief of The Far Eastern Economic Review and The Wall Street Journal Asia.
In 2002, The Wall Street Journal was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York, which was across the street from the Journal headquarters. Bussey wrote a front-page, first-person account of the attack that was part of the prizewinning package. During his tenure overseeing foreign coverage, the Journal won three Pulitzer Prizes for international reporting, the first in 1999 for coverage of Russia's financial crisis, the second in 2001 for coverage of China's dissident Falun Gong movement, and the third in 2007 for coverage of the social and environmental consequences of China's rapid economic growth.
