Izzyaward

Mother Jones reporter Shane Bauer will share this year’s Izzy Award with Seth Freed Wessler of The Nation Institute, after the two worked independently to reveal major abuses at for-profit U.S. prisons. The annual Izzy Award is presented by the Park Center for Independent Media and named for legendary dissident journalist I.F. Stone. Other winners include Nation writer Ari Berman, who exposed Republican efforts to suppress the vote. Collecting a “special documentary honor” prize is ”America Divided,” a series covering inequality in education, housing, healthcare, criminal justice and the political system. To see interviews with all of this year’s Izzy Award winners, go to democracynow.org.
