Newsletter: inewsource wins big at San Diego Press Club awards

Award-winning investigative journalism doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It is made possible with support from members and readers like you.

We sincerely appreciate your help in making this kind of journalism possible in San Diego.

During the past year we produced high-quality investigations and stories that held government accountable and explored issues you care about. That work was recognized this week when our reporters received 11 awards from the San Diego Press Club. That includes two Best of Show and five first place awards.

The Emmy-nominated “An Impossible Choice” received Best of Show for daily newspaper & web, as well as first place honors in newspaper investigative reporting and radio series.

Our look at asset forfeiture, the process by which law enforcement can seize cash, cars and everything in between without charging a suspected criminal with a crime, was also honored. It won Best of Show for radio, and first place for radio enterprise & investigative reporting.

We couldn’t do this impactful, award-winning journalism without your membership support. inewsource members make deeply researched public interest journalism available to all of our community. Thank you.
