Four ProPublica Reporters Win Best in Business Awards

The Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW) has announced the winners of its 17th annual Best in Business Awards, which honor excellence in business and financial journalism across all news platforms.

Four of ProPublica's reporters were recognized for their work. Paul Kiel and Olga Pierce won in the investigative category for digital news outlets for their series examining the foreclosure crisis. Senior reporter Jesse Eisinger won the opinion/column category for digital news outlets for his bi-weekly column, The Trade, which is co-published with the New York Times. ProPublica's Jeff Gerth was also recognized for his collaborative effort with the Financial Times on its Tax War series, which won two SABEW awards in the international division for creative use across multiple platforms and also in the investigative category.

A full list of winners can be found here. Congratulations to everyone involved.

Thanks, Paul - for your incredible dedication to accurate, candid reporting on the f.c. crisis. You, personally, changed the tone and tenor of the national scandal. Before you kicked the story into high gear, journos just parroted bank p.r. blather about ‘free homes for deadbeats’ to rabble-rouse opposition to even basic assistance.
You are a marvel and a treasure. Keep up the good work. Pls. stay on the story. We are still out here, underwater, underfunded and unemployed.
Don’t turn your back on us.
Congrats are well-deserved here!!
