LATEST TRIBUTE NEWS

Bill Whitaker of “60 Minutes” and Anne Applebaum of The Atlantic to Receive Top Journalism Awards

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) will award top honors this year to Bill Whitaker, a longtime correspondent for CBS News and “60 Minutes,” and Anne Applebaum, staff writer for The Atlantic and a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian.

ICFJ Honorees Demonstrate the Power of Reporting the Truth in Challenging Times

In powerful remarks, the evening’s honorees – Fareed Zakaria of CNN, Roman Anin of Russia, and Lina Attalah of Egypt – underscored the importance of truth-telling in an era rife with disease, disinformation and discord, as world leaders with authoritarian leanings seek to divide communities and nations.

Roman Anin Accepts ICFJ Knight Trailblazer Award

I received my first ICFJ Knight Award back in 2013. Seven years ago. Sometimes when I look back at these times I have the feeling that it happened in a different century, on a different planet and with a different person. So many things have changed.
