The Scripps Howard Foundation has selected three ProPublica projects as finalists in its 2014 competition honoring the best journalism across 15 categories:
Losing Ground, a yearlong investigation into Louisiana's rapidly disappearing coastline led by ProPublica's Al Shaw and Brian Jacobs, with Bob Marshall from The Lens, was a finalist in environmental reporting.
Unforgiven, an in-depth look into the relentless tactics companies use to pursue consumer debt in America, was a finalist in the business/economics reporting category. The lead reporter, ProPublica's Paul Kiel, won in this category in 2012 for his series on the nation's foreclosure crisis.
And The Secret Recordings of Carmen Segarra, ProPublica reporter Jake Bernstein's joint project with This American Life offering a rare look inside the New York Fed, was a finalist in radio in-depth coverage.
