TU’s D.C. correspondent wins national award

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Dan Freedman of Hearst Newspapers, whose coverage of the nation’s capital appears regularly in the Times Union, has been honored with the 2018 David Lynch Memorial Regional Reporting Award.

Freedman, who writes for the Times Union as well as the Connecticut Post and its sibling papers, and Sam Brodey, a former MinnPost reporter now working for the Daily Beast, won the prize for stories on sexual harassment in the congressional delegations they cover.

Freedman delved into the controversy over U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty’s handling of harassment and abuse complaints lodged against the Connecticut Democrat’s former chief of staff.

The judges said Freedman and Brodey “exemplified the ideal traits of regional congressional reporting,” serving as an accountability watchdog of their delegations and finding deep local implications in one of the defining stories of our time.

The Lynch Award honors daily print journalism that explains how actions in Congress touch the local community.

The late David Lynch covered Congress for the Buffalo News and for bureaus that served dailies from New England to Alaska.
