“This was an extraordinary year for magazines,” said Mr. Holt. “The 2011 finalists include Michael Hastings’ ‘The Runaway General,’ which led to the resignation of Stanley McChrystal, and Jane Mayer’s ‘Covert Operations,’ on the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch—stories that made news while covering the news. With pieces on the health-care crisis, the failure of the criminal justice system, the impact of autism and conflicts around the globe, all of this year’s nominees underscore the power of magazine journalism.”Complete list with links at the above link.
