Pulitzer Prizes and Toxins – the Links Between The Two Topics
Are we in a new age of investigative journalism, and so are reputation risks even higher for companies involved with stories that are not favorable ? The question arises because Pulitzer prizes were announced yesterday, and two relate to actual or alleged toxins. One Pulitzer went to the Center for Public Interest for its reporting on the fiasco that is black lung litigation. Another went to Dan Fagin for his book, Toms River: A Story of Science and Salvation. It’s a non-fiction telling of the story of a river, pollution by Ciba-Geigy, and years of action and inaction.
