Emily Got Her Gun, and an AWARD!!
Everyone please join me in congratulating Emily Miller for winning the Clark Mollenhoff Award for Investigative Reporting from the Institute on Political Journalism.
This is a well-deserved honor for the hard work and creativity Emily has shown in her hard-hitting “Emily Gets Her Gun” series. The work is a great illustration of our department creed that good opinion writing is based on solid reporting.
It also represents acknowledgement of the first-class journalism all of you do for the TWT opinion pages every day. As evidence of this, Emily’s work beat out competition from The Wall Street Journal and the Seattle Times, two institutions that have received this award before. This is the first time The Washington Times has won this award.
