Most Honest Confession Award

Dumanoski at an Utne Reader symposium May 17-20. Quoted by Micah
Morrison in the July American Spectator.

-- Boston Globe legal reporter Ethan Bronner in Los
Angeles Times reporter David Shaw’s series on abortion coverage, July 1.
"After seeing our footage, she told us that Frontline doesn’t co-produce anti-communist programs."
