Ten Journalists in Ten Days: Amanda Terkel
The third journalist in my Ten Journalists in Ten Days series is senior political reporter for the Huffington Post, Amanda Terkel. Terkel was recipient of The Hillman Prize in 2008. The Hillman Prize is a journalism award given out annually by the Sidney Hillman Foundation. It is given to journalists "who pursue investigative reporting and deep storytelling in the public interest." Like John Nichols and Andy Kroll, Terkel was also instrumental in exposing the union busting tactics of Wisconsin governor Scott Walker and his Republican controlled administration. Here Ms. Terkel talks with Rachel Maddow about the Republican effort to attack labor unions on the federal level.
