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.


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.

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger. While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
