One Newspaper's Commitment to American Values

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune has been recognized for its "committment to a foreign policy true to American values": The American Academy of Diplomacy has given the Arthur Ross Media Award to Jim Boyd, the paper's Deputy Editor of the Editorial Pages.

The Strib, as it's referred to in the biz, has taken a consistently anti-war stand on its editorial pages. It printed the entire Downing Street Memo. And, most notably, the paper's leadership withstood an attack campaign by the right after the Strib unequivocally condemned torture.
