2019 Izzy Awards Honor Earth Island Journal, Laura Flanders, Aaron Maté & Dave Lindorff

HeadlineApr 03, 2019

And the 2019 Izzy Award “for outstanding achievement in independent media” will be shared between four recipients: Earth Island Journal and journalists Laura Flanders, Aaron Maté and Dave Lindorff.

Earth Island Journal’s issue on “Women and the Environment” highlighted the often-ignored connections between environmental rights and women’s rights.

Journalist and TV host Laura Flanders is being honored for her work exploring alternative political, social and economic models, and her recent reporting on the rise of the Labour movement in the U.K.

Independent journalist Aaron Maté—formerly a Democracy Now! producer—consistently challenged the media’s coverage of the Russia-Trump campaign collusion story, known as “Russiagate,” in his reporting for The Nation.

Dave Lindorff’s investigation into the Pentagon’s accounting practices revealed it has been fabricating numbers in its annual financial reports to Congress, obscuring the Pentagon’s actual spending and making the agency unaccountable for its budget. Lindorff is the founder of the alternative news site ThisCantBeHappening.net.

The Izzy Award is presented by the Park Center for Independent Media at Ithaca College and is named for legendary dissident journalist I.F. Stone.
