The Park Center for Independent Media honors a publication and two journalists with year's Izzy Award "for outstanding achievement in independent media." All undertook trailblazing and intrepid reporting during 2020: Truthout, Liliana Segura, and Tim Schwab.
• The nonprofit news outlet Truthout extensively covered the injustices enmeshed in the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, highlighting its political, economic, environmental, and racial issues.
• Liliana Segura's reporting at The Intercept revealed longstanding truths about the unfairness of capital punishment — from its disproportionate impact on people of color to the arbitrariness of how people end up on death row.
• And Tim Schwab writing in The Nation uncovered The Gates Foundation’s striking conflicts of interest, complicated web of influence, and troubling monopoly power in the field of global health.
