ProPublica wins business and finance Scripps Howard Award
ProPublica’s “The Secret IRS Files” was named the winner in the business and financial category of the 69th annual Scripps Howard Awards.
The series ignited a worldwide debate about wealth and inequality.
The judges wrote, “If you were not outraged by the U.S. tax system before reading this series, you will be when you are done. This kind of courageous and compelling reporting has sparked more than dinner conversations. It has sparked a national conversation about potential changes in the law.”
The other finalists were “Frontline” (PBS) and The New York Times for “Boeing’s Fatal Flaw” and The California Newsroom, KRCB and KQED for “Bankrupt.”
