Mid-year Restore Integrity Award Winners Announced
The 2013 mid-year Restore Integrity Award winners are all "prolific truth tellers" according to Dr. Andrew D. Jackson who co-administers the awards program. George Stokes, Sr., Lead Co-Administrator, says: "So much information and so many articles and books are circulated or advertised on the internet, but the words of our award recipients seem to jump off the screen.” The award recipients are Adam Liptak, Glenn Greenwald, Dr. Cornell West, and Retired Judge Elizabeth A. Weaver.
Since June 2009, POPULAR’s RIA has been awarded bi-annually in the categories of private sector, public sector, and / or grassroots advocacy.
All of POPULAR’s award recipients have taken or otherwise pursued one or more specific acts or measures to eliminate significant inequity, waste, fraud, abuse, or other public and/or private sector corruption in America. POPULAR defines corruption as any illegal or unethical conduct contributing to the systemic malfunction of government, commerce, and/or democracy in America as contemplated by the U.S. Constitution.
George Stokes, Sr., Lead Co-Administrator of POPULAR’s RIA explained: “This year’s mid-year award winners are all writers, except that Dr. Cornell West is also a very popular public speaker. So much information and so many articles and books are circulated or advertised on the internet, but the words of our award recipients seem to jump off the screen.”
Dr. Andrew D. Jackson is also a POPULAR RIA Co-Administrator. He says, “I consider our 2013 mid-year award winners to be prolific truth tellers. Many people are high-profile writers or speakers, and while most of them are probably truthful, I am so often struck by how partisan the news, and “experts”, and pundits seem. Most times I feel bombarded by propaganda, but not when I read or hear what our current award winners have to say.”
