Toronto Star investigative team wins Journalism Integrity Award

TORONTO, Feb. 22 /CNW/ - The Toronto Star investigative team's "stubborn emphasis on substance" -- particularly for its quality and quantity of investigative journalism - has helped them secure J-Source's second annual Journalism Integrity Award for its contributions to quality journalism.

The Toronto Star's investigative team was nominated for putting "its money ... where its reporters are: digging compelling, provocative, and yes, socially important (remember that concept?) stories out of data, out of abuses and injustices, out of the rubble of post-earthquake Haiti, and out of surprising places like sports."

The Journalism Integrity Award was established in 2009 to honour journalists or organizations that demonstrate a positive impact on the quality of journalism in Canada. The inaugural winners were the employees of the CHEK-TV newsroom in Victoria, BC, who bought the station and operated it as a local, independent news station dedicated to improving the quality and quantity of local news. The jury selects the winner from nominations submitted by J-Source readers and contributors.
