Times’ Emily Miller wins Mollenhoff Award
Washington Times Senior Editor for Opinion Emily Miller was awarded the Clark Mollenhoff Award for Investigative Reporting from the Institute on Political Journalism.
The Mollenhoff award was given to Ms. Miller for her “Emily Gets Her Gun” series, which ultimately resulted in review of onerous gun regulations by Washington, D.C., officials.
Ms. Miller’s work beat out competition from The Wall Street Journal and the Seattle Times, both previous winners of the award. This is the first time The Washington Times has won this award.
“Emily Miller’s work exemplifies the guiding principle of our editorial pages, which is that good opinion writing is based on solid reporting” said Editorial Page Editor Brett M. Decker. “Her ‘Emily Gets Her Gun’ series shows what individuals can do to fight back against bad government regulations. It’s investigative journalism up front and personal because the writer is involved in the drama as it unfolds.”
Each year the Mollenhoff award is given to a story that contains all the elements of investigative reporting, as well as the initiative shown by Clark Mollenhoff himself. Mollenhoff, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, was a pioneer in investigative journalism. His work led to the successful intervention of authorities in a case of corruption and fraud in the Teamsters Union.
“This is authentic and innovative journalism. Emily Miller crafted an edgy, first-hand look at a complex issue, told in a way that was personal without compromising her credibility. That’s not easy, and it’s a good example of the kind of thinking we value and encourage at The Washington Times,” said Thomas McDevitt, President of The Washington Times.
