USAT | Prosecutor misconduct series is honored

USA Today has won a Hillman Prize for its "Justice in the Balance" investigative series, "revealing the scope of federal prosecutor misconduct,'' the Sidney Hillman Foundation announced today.

The series authors were Brad Heath and Kevin McCoy. The prizes and sponsoring foundation recognize Sidney Hillman, a labor leader who founded and led the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America, a predecessor union to Workers United, SEIU, and a founder of the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO). 

The prizes, instituted in 1950, are given in the categories of books, newspaper reporting, magazine reporting, broadcast, photography, and blogs. The awards will be presented May 19 in New York City.

  1. No doubt, Hillman would have applauded USAT's series.

    Also without doubt, Hillman would be a major critic of Gannett, a newspaper and broadcasting industry leader in busting unions.
