Rolling Stone's Controversial Reporting Earns Recognition

By |

For the third time in the last four years, Rolling Stone has been nominated in the annual American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) awards in the reporting category, this time in recognition of Contributing Editor Janet Reitman's investigation of the Church of Scientology, a 13,000-word story that made noise in the February 23rd, 2006, issue.

The piece is a can't-miss gem: Learn about the church's quasi-secret police force, the strange circumstances of L. Ron Hubbard's death and what happens to people who try to leave the flock.

We also received a general excellence nomination, in part recognizing our "Worst President Ever" cover story.

We're proud of our work and invite you to tell us what you think.
