The Online News Association has named its finalists for its awards this year, and I want to point out one particularly entry from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that I liked.
Earlier this year, the AJC reporters Ann Hardie, Alan Judd and Carrie Teegardin analyzed how Georgia lending laws affect consumers, creditors and regulators. These articles are the first installment in an ongoing series. (Disclosure: I worked with Alan at the Sarasota Herald-Tribune and with Carrie at the AJC.)
I thought they were well done, and they show how the business beat and the government beat often intersect. Too often, business coverage doesn’t look at these type of stories.
If you want to read some of the articles, go here.
