Al Jazeera English Wins Columbia Journalism School’s Highest Honor

Everyone get ready to freak out! Al Jazeera English has been selected to win Columbia Journalism School’s highest honor, the Columbia Journalism Award. The annual award recognizes an individual or organization that produces extremely high quality journalism “for the public good.”

According to a press release obtained by Poynter, Al Anstey, the Managing Editor for Al Jazeera English, will accept the award during Columbia’s commencement ceremony.

Al Jazeera – only the second organization to ever win the award – won for its unparalleled coverage of the uprisings in the Middle East, but we’re sure someone will be mad about this. But who cares, right? Al Jazeera definitely deserves this honor, and they shouldn’t let a few idiots ruin it for them.
