Enrique Zileri | Magazine editor, 83
Mr. Zileri was widely noted as a persistent advocate for press freedoms in Latin America when many regional governments sought to suppress the media. In a statement, Mario Vargas Llosa, the Peruvian writer and Nobel laureate, called him an "indefatigable defender of freedom and democracy" whose publication "could never be bribed or intimidated."
Caretas, which means Masks, was cofounded by Mr. Zileri's mother in 1950 and became one of the country's most influential news outlets. Its reach was compared to that of Time or Newsweek in the United States.
Among U.S. journalists, Mr. Zileri was a go-to source for explanations of his country's politics.
