The NYU has released a list of “the 100 outstanding journalists in the United States in the last 100 years.”
In March 2012 the faculty at the Arthur L Carter Journalism Institute at New York University, together with an Honorary Committee of alumni, selected “the 100 outstanding journalists in the United States in the last 100 years”.
The list was selected from more than 300 nominees and was announced at a reception “in honour of the 100th anniversary of journalism education at NYU”, held yesterday.
The list, which can serve as a ‘who’s who’ of US journalism, is at this link.
New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute has compiled its list of the top 10 works of journalism of the decade 2000-9. The list, which unsurprisingly has a US bias, was whittled down from 80 nominees.
Our purpose was to call attention to and honour work of exceptional importance and quality – journalism that brilliantly met the challenges of this difficult decade.
Top of this inspiring poll is the New York Times’ ‘A Nation Challenged’, a special section published in 2001 looking into the local, national and international impact of the 11 September attacks.
