The National Press Club today announced the recipients of this year’s journalism contest. Two reports by Fusion were recognized with honorable mentions:
- Kashmir Hill, now a reporter for the Special Projects Desk, got the honorable mention in the Consumer Journalism-Periodicals category for her in-depth report: ‘How an internet mapping glitch turned a random Kansas farm into a digital hell.’
- FUSION TV’s investigative unit received an honorable mention for the Joan M. Friedenberg Online Journalism Award for its report “The Naked Truth: Death by Fentanyl.” The investigative report took a strong look at how the opioid crisis is hitting America. “Death by Fentanyl” was also honored earlier this year with an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award.
The first-place and honorable mention winners of the contest will be recognized at the annual awards dinner on Friday evening, July 28, National Press Club in Washington.
