This Nov. 14, 2012, photo shows the room in an abandoned barn where Eduard Mochalov keeps old copies of The Bribe and posters from protests against corruption in Chuvashia, in Yarabaikasy near Cheboksary, the capital city of Chuvashia, Russia. Posters show portraits of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and says "Read the newspaper Bribe." Eduard Mochalov has found a new lease on life as a crusading journalist investigating corruption in his native region, fueled by tips from disgruntled businessmen and government workers. Undeterred by a system where the law is selectively used to protect the powerful and crack down on critics, Mochalov has quickly earned cult status _ not to mention the ire of countless local officials _ throughout the small province of Chuvashia.
