  • The Center for Public Integrity, The Texas Tribune, The Associated Press and Newsy: Blowout

    “Blowout: Inside America’s Energy Gamble” is the result of four newsrooms joining forces for the better part of a year to produce a multi-part investigation — seven stories, one full-length documentary — examining the vast scope, shadowy impetus and sweeping health and climate impacts of America’s largest oil and gas boom. Following key rule changes during the Obama administration that opened the floodgates for oil and gas exports, producers are looking to meet a growing global demand for fossil fuels — and, critics note, to inflate the need. We gave readers a cradle-to-grave look at this phenomenon, starting where the fossil fuels are pulled from the ground and ending in countries where they’re being consumed. Our series exposed the role of the U.S. government as a marketing agent for the fossil-fuel industry at a perilous time in the world’s history, with worsening climate change threatening lives, property and entire communities.
  • Case Cleared: How Rape Goes Unpunished In America, Newsy, Reveal from the Center For Investigative Reporting & PRX, ProPublica

    “Case Cleared” uncovered how police agencies across America are masking the truth about how often they get justice for rape victims. Dozens of major jurisdictions are inflating clearance rates for rape by making cases look solved when they are simply closed with no arrest. In some cases, suspects find new victims after being left on the street by police. Reporters also discovered a major flaw in the FBI’s new national uniform crime reporting system. The findings surprised elected leaders and senior DOJ and FBI officials, while prompting immediate and significant action at both the local and national levels.
