ICFJ Tribute to Journalists 2020

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

Last night, at the ICFJ Tribute to Journalists 2020, we celebrated valiant journalists whose work makes an indelible mark on their communities.

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.
