Congratulations to CJR’s Joel Meares for winning the Best Profile, Digital Media award at today’s Mirror Awards Ceremony. (The Mirror Awards, given by Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications, honor the year’s best media reporting.) Meares earned his weighty, glass trophy for his profile of “the frizzy-haired muckraker of New York’s statehouse,” Liz Benjamin. Meares’s profile of Chuck Todd was also a contender in the category.
Other CJR nominees included Justin Peters (Best Single Article, Digital Media,“Trust Falls”) and Craig Silverman (Best Commentary, Digital Media, “How Wikileaks Outsourced the Burden of Verification,” “Canadian Media in Crisis,” “Eruption, Interrupted”).
