Jane Mayer Wins 2008 John Chancellor Award

Filed under: Headline Shooter   Tagged:

The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer was presented with the John Chancellor Award for Excellence in Journalism last week. Mayer was honored for her reporting on the use of torture by the Bush administration. (Andrew C. Revkin of The New York Times is the other recipient, for his coverage of climate change.)

Mayer and Revkin spoke at Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism, and we’ve got audio. After some minor A/V difficulties, it’s a very interesting discussion about reporting from two people who know a great deal about it.

Also, Floyd Abrams gets mentioned. Floyd Abrams rocks.
