Naomi Klein, David Sirota Win Izzy Award for Achievement in Independent Media

HeadlineMar 24, 2015

The author Naomi Klein and investigative journalist David Sirota have jointly won the seventh annual Izzy Award, presented by the Park Center for Independent Media, and named for legendary dissident journalist, I.F. Stone. The judges praised Klein’s “groundbreaking book,” titled This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate, and Sirota’s exposés on corruption in the pension system. Jeff Cohen, director of the Park Center for Independent Media, said in a statement, “Naomi Klein and David Sirota are the journalistic heirs of I.F. Stone, taking on the most powerful forces in society — from Wall Street to Big Oil & Gas — and giving voice to the victims of predatory capitalism.”
