Excellent news from the Associated Press today:
Seymour Hersh of The New Yorker won his fifth George Polk Award for his accounts of prisoner abuse in Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison, making him the most-honored individual in the history of the awards.
A much-deserved honor for a one-of-a-kind investigative journalist.

Hearing that Hersh won it this year makes me even more proud that we here at Southern Exposure won the Polk Award for Magazine Reporting last year. We gained the honor for "Banking on Misery," Virginia-based reporter Michael Hudson's investigation into Citigroup and other financial institutions that prey on the economically vulnerable and keep millions locked in debt.

With Hersh, we're in good company.
