Baltimore Sun columnist earns Bart Richards Award for Media Criticism

Penn State News:  Media critic David Zurawik of The Baltimore Sun took aim at a variety of topics in 2017, and he did so with deep knowledge and a passion — driven by a desire to advocate for news consumers, informing the citizens who rely on the valuable information his work provides.

For his efforts, Zurawik has earned the Bart Richards Award for Media Criticism, presented annually by the Donald P. Bellisario College of Communications at Penn State. The award honors work that evaluates news media coverage of significant subjects or issues. It is intended to recognize constructively critical articles, books and electronic media reports; academic and other research; and reports by media ombudsmen and journalism watchdog groups.
