The American Society of Magazine Editors announced today that an article written by ProPublica reporter Sheri Fink is a finalist for a National Magazine Award in the reporting category, which honors "the enterprise, skill and analysis that a magazine exhibits in covering an event or problem of contemporary interest and significance."
Fink's remarkable two-year investigation, "The Deadly Choices at Memorial," explored what really happened to some of the patients who died at New Orleans's Memorial Medical Center in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The 13,000-word story was published in The New York Times Magazine last August.
Other magazines in the reporting category include The Boston Globe Magazine, The New Yorker, and Vanity Fair. Click here for a full list of NMA nominees.
