SPJ honors Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The Society of Professional Journalists announced this week that Gina Barton, John Diedrich and Ben Poston earned the 2013 Eugene S. Pulliam First Amendment Award for their investigation into the Milwaukee Police Department.

Their Milwaukee Journal Sentinel series “Police Problems: A Fight for Accountability” will be honored Aug. 26 at the SPJ-RTDNA-NAHJ Excellence in Journalism conference.

The award comes with a $10,000 prize. It is presented by the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation, SPJ’s educational foundation, in support of a person or organization that fights for the First Amendment.

Barton and Diedrich remain with the Journal Sentinel, while Poston now works for the Los Angeles Times.
