(from Truthdig, 6/25)
Chris Hedges, who wrote the foreword for Acts of War: Iraq and Afghanistan in Seven Plays, edited by Karen Malpede, Michael Messina, and Bob Shuman, has been named L.A. Press Club’s Journalist of the Year.
On a night when Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein were honored for their hallmark Watergate investigation, the Los Angeles Press Club named Truthdig columnist Chris Hedges as the 2011 journalist of the year in the online category. Truthdig received honorable mentions in Best Website Exclusive to the Internet and in Group Weblog.
In awarding him the organization’s top prize for online writers, the judges offered high praise for Hedges, calling him “Champion of the 99%—mortal enemy of the 1%. This former war correspondent turns out weekly columns packed with insightful and biting opinion.”
