ProPublica Redistricting Series Wins Honorable Mention

The Toner Prize for Excellence in Political Reporting has awarded ProPublica's Olga Pierce, Jeff Larson and Lois Beckett an honorable mention for their investigative series on redistricting. The reporters took a close look at how powerful interests were manipulating the process, particularly in California, where the Democratic party set out to surreptitiously influence the lines that were drawn. This is the second consecutive year ProPublica has been honored by the Toner judges for fact-based reporting.

"With a combination of computer mapping and shoe-leather reporting, the ProPublica team of reporters draw a clear and alarming picture of how powerful forces shape voting districts in states across the country," the judges write.
