Jane Mayer's Influential Anti-Koch Piece, "Covert Operations," a National Magazine Award Finalist



Former Reason intern Mike Riggs points us to today's journalism-award jaw-dropper: The New Yorker's very influential and controversial hit piece on Charles and David Koch (the latter of whom sits on The Reason Foundation's Board of Trustees), has been named one of five finalists for the most-prestigious-of-'em-all National Magazine Award in the "Reporting" category. Full list of nominations here. Reason was shut out in the print categories, though we did earlier snag a nomination for multimedia package.

Read some real-time Reason discussion of Mayer's effort from Nick Gillespie, Jesse Walker, and me (twice). I also wrote a later column about "The Great Libertarian Conspiracy."
