Patrick Madden of NPR member station WAMU 88.5 is the winner of the annual Daniel Schorr Journalism Prize, named for the respected NPR senior news analyst and veteran Washington journalist who died in 2010.
Madden was cited for “Assault on Justice,” a collaboration with WAMU, the Investigative Reporting Workshop and Reveal News. The radio documentary and written story showed how often the charge of “assaulting a police officer” was used in the District of Columbia, questioning its potential for overuse particularly with minority men.

The Investigative Reporting Workshop has had an amazing year! Just look at our hard-hitting reports on investigativereportingworkshop.org and you’ll see why. We accomplished so much because of your generosity.
The new year promises to be equally extraordinary. But we can’t do it without you. Investigative journalism is expensive and takes time — but it’s vital for a strong democracy and an empowered citizenry.
That’s why we hope you’ll continue to support our work with a donation this holiday season. All of the funding support for our investigations comes from foundation partners and individual supporters like you.
