Slugger Awards (Media) Pitch: Investigative Journalism

A while ago, one of our politicians accused a journalist of being lazy. That may be true of some but certainly not all. A good investigative journalist will look warily behind the press releases of an organization or government and dig out what the whole or the true story is. He/she is our sharpest tool for peeling away the veneer to get to the truth and enabling that truth to be spoken to power. Her/his diligence should be recognized.

Note:

Slugger is  now looking for pitches from people to turn the best from our long list of ideas into an actual award category. So we’re asking you to email Mick ([email protected]) with a suggested title for your category and a 100 word outline of what it means in practice.
