Mother Jones reporter wins Polk Award for Romney story

Source: AP

NEW YORK (AP) The reporter for Mother Jones magazine who broke the story of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's remarks that 47 percent of Americans "believe they are victims" is among the winners of the 64th annual George Polk Awards in Journalism.

David Corn, Mother Jones' Washington bureau chief, received the political reporting prize for his work, which shook up the campaign when he reported on the remarks in September.

The awards were announced Monday by Long Island University. Winners also include journalists from Bloomberg News, The New York Times, CBS News, McClatchy Newspapers, GlobalPost, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, The New Yorker, The Washington Post, the Maine Sunday Telegram, "Frontline," and the nonprofit California Watch.

Among the top prizes in U.S. journalism, the Polk Awards were created in 1949 in honor of CBS reporter George W. Polk, who was killed while covering the Greek civil war. This year's awards will be given out April 11.

8. Pure Reportage

It was simply a report of what this public figure said.
It really turned the campaign when you look back on it now.
Here's what the guy said to his people when he thought nobody was listening.
There was no way to deny it afterward.
Great!

10. David Corn got lucky, the Carter kid did all the leg work

Corn was shameless in his self promotion, and stopped even mentioning Carter after the first few television appearances after the story broke. The absence of Carter in his commentary was glaring.

11. actually I'd say the person who got the video did the leg work and the hard part

That person took a huge risk, and we all owe whoever a huge debt.

12. How Romney got away with murder

He has killed some corporations which are people. He conspired to kill them. He should face a grand jury.
