Harvard Kennedy School Institute of Politics Executive Director Setti Warren speaks with this year’s nominees for the Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting, issued each year by The Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy. Every year the finalists convene prior to the announcement of a winner for a discussion of their reporting.
The annual Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting honors investigative reporting that best promotes more effective and ethical conduct of government, the making of public policy, or the practice of politics.
The finalists include Propublica’s Neil Bedi and team for “Targeted,” IndyStar’s Tony Cook and team for “Careless,” The Washington Post health reporter Dan Diamond for “They Did Not Realize We Were Human Beings,” The News & Observer of Raleigh’s Joseph Neff and team for “Think Debtors Prisons Are a Thing of the Past? Not in Mississippi,” Reuters team with data journalist Janet Roberts for “American Injustice,” and The Marshall Project’s Abbie VanSickle for “Mauled: When Police Dogs are Weapons.”
