Seven Days wins five national journalism awards - Seven Days

Coverage of crisis in assisted-living homes and the opioid epidemic has netted Vermont’s weekly newspaper several national awards.

"A first place in the Health Care category for “Hooked: Stories and Solutions from Vermont’s Opioid Crisis,” written by Kate O’Neill. The judges called it “passionate, intrepid reporting. The personal story of loss blends with the big opioid crisis picture in exactly the right ways.” The series has also received awards from the New England Newspaper and Press Association, and from Recovery Vermont. It was made possible in part by underwriting support from the Vermont Community Foundation, UVM Health Network and Pomerleau Real Estate."

    For what ? It surely is not for allowing equal time, and space for opposing opinions.
