The Institute for Political Journalism has awarded Emily Miller of The Washington Times with the Clark Mollenhoff Award for Investigative Reporting.  Miller was chosen for the award on the basis of her “Emily Gets Her Gun” series, which documented her efforts to obtain a legal firearm in Washington, D.C.  Click here for an interview with Miller.  Additional coverage of the award, as well as further information on Miller’s work, can be found at The Washington TimesFishbowlDC and Distriction.

The Clark Mollenhoff Award for Excellence in Investigative Reporting is named for the late Pulitzer-Prize winning reporter who conducted groundbreaking investigations into the influence of organized crime in American society. His work led to successful crackdowns on labor racketeering and Teamster Union corruption. Clark Mollenhoff was a professor of journalism at Washington and Lee University and was the director of the Institute on Political Journalism at the time of his death.

The Mollenhoff Award is given annually to the best newspaper or magazine story that conforms both to the definition of investigative reporting as originally defined by Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) and to the professional standards articulated by Clark Mollenhoff in his critiques of journalism craft. Recipients may be a newspaper reporter, team of reporters or an individual newspaper showing initiative similar to Mollenhoff’s.

Miller and The Washington Times will be honored at an awards ceremony at The National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, July 18.
