VIDEO: Amy Goodman & Glenn Greenwald Izzy Award Speeches

RSS

Amy Goodman and Glenn Greenwald received the first annual Izzy Award for Special Achievement in Independent Media this spring.

The Izzy Award is named after legendary maverick journalist I. F. Stone, who launched I. F. Stone Weekly in 1953 and exposed government deception, McCarthyism, and racial bigotry.

Presented annually, the Izzy Award goes to an independent outlet, journalist, or producer for contributions to our culture, politics, or journalism created outside traditional corporate structures. More information about the Izzy Award available here.
