Fareed Zakaria and Two International Digital News Pioneers to Receive Prestigious Journalism Awards
By: ICFJ | 06/30/20
The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) will award top honors this year to CNN host Fareed Zakaria and two intrepid founders of investigative news sites in Egypt and Russia, countries with harsh controls on the press. Zakaria, whose thoughtful insights and expert analysis have helped Americans make sense of complex global issues for nearly three decades, will receive the ICFJ Founders Award for Excellence in Journalism. The host of CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” and a columnist for The Washington Post, he has brought his clear-eyed perspectives to the biggest, most important stories of the day — from the Brexit debate to Russian interference in U.S. elections to the coronavirus pandemic that is rocking the world. “Fareed is one of the smartest analysts on foreign policy,” ICFJ President Joyce Barnathan said. “He has a deep understanding of global trends and an unmatched ability to explain how they impact us.”
