Times’ Emily Miller wins Mollenhoff Award(DC)
The Washington Times ^ | 23 May, 2012 | NA

Washington Times Senior Editor for Opinion Emily Miller was awarded the Clark Mollenhoff Award for Investigative Reporting from the Institute on Political Journalism.

The Mollenhoff award was given to Ms. Miller for her “Emily Gets Her Gun” series, which ultimately resulted in review of onerous gun regulations by Washington, D.C., officials.

Ms. Miller’s work beat out competition from The Wall Street Journal and the Seattle Times, both previous winners of the award. This is the first time The Washington Times has won this award.

“Emily Miller’s work exemplifies the guiding principle of our editorial pages, which is that good opinion writing is based on solid reporting” said Editorial Page Editor Brett M. Decker. “Her ‘Emily Gets Her Gun’ series shows what individuals can do to fight back against bad government regulations. It’s investigative journalism up front and personal because the writer is involved in the drama as it unfolds.”

Each year the Mollenhoff award is given to a story that contains all the elements of investigative reporting, as well as the initiative shown by Clark Mollenhoff himself. Mollenhoff, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, was a pioneer in investigative journalism. His work led to the successful intervention of authorities in a case of corruption and fraud in the Teamsters Union.

The MSM never would expose abuse of Second Amendment rights or abuse of gun owners, except as a way to intimidate people to keep them from exercizing their rights.

Kudos to Emily Miller, a well deserved award.

This was a great series by Emily. If anyone has not read it, I would encourage you to check the archives and read it now.

I love conservative women. Gorgeous, tough fiber, yet always feminine.

Rarely do I applaud the issuance of todays so-called "Journalism" awards. Most are nothing more than closed door self-affirmations of carrying the current party line. Ms. Miller has risen above that low standard.
However, this award is truly a reflection of good investigative skills combined with excellent writing abilities.
Ms. Miller has found a hot topic and she, as has the general public, has reaped the benefits.
I look for her to grow in fame and gain the rewards of her work.

Well done Ms. Miller...Well done!
