Schwab wins Izzy Award, finalist for Deadline Club Award

Tim Schwab (MS '06, journalism) recently won the Izzy Award from the Park Center for Independent Media at Ithaca College for outstanding achievement in independent media. In a three-part investigation published in The Nation, he explored the opaque operations of the Gates Foundation. Schwab's work "uncovered The Gates Foundation’s striking conflicts of interest, complicated web of influence, and troubling monopoly power in the field of global health." (Read his article "While the Poor Get Sick, Bill Gates Just Gets Richer.")

Schwab is a finalist for the Deadline Club Award in the category "Magazine Investigative Reporting" for his article “Bill Gates’s Charity Paradox,” also published in The Nation. The New York City chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists will announce the winners of the Deadline Club Awards on May 17.
