IRE members win 2014 Goldsmith Prize

Seven IRE members from two news organizations won the 2014 Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting.

Chris Hamby, Ronnie Greene, Jim Morris and Chris Zubak-Skees of the Center for Public Integrity and Matthew Mosk, Brian Ross and Rhonda Schwartz of ABC News were recognized for their work on “Breathless and Burdened: Dying from Black Lung, Buried by Law and Medicine.”

The yearlong investigation examines how doctors and lawyers, working at the behest of the coal industry, have helped defeat the benefits claims of miners sick and dying of black lung, even as disease rates are on the rise and an increasing number of miners are turning to a system that was supposed to help alleviate their suffering.

Several IRE members also were named finalists for the award.
