The media play an important role in our democracy—the “watchdog” role, keeping the government in check. But who watches the watchers? Turns out the media do that, too.
In 2006, Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications established the Mirror Awards to honor the reporters, editors and teams of writers who “hold a mirror to their own industry” for the public’s benefit. They are the most important awards for recognizing excellence in media industry reporting.
