Club Members Win Polk Award

February 17, 2010 | By Sylvia Smith

A Bloomberg News team, including NPC members Alison Fitzgerald and Craig Torres, won the George Polk Award national reporting award.

Their articles challenged the Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve Board to open their books on trillions of dollars in bailout aid that went to financial institutions. A federal court ordered disclosures under the Freedom of Information Act, but an appeal is pending.
