nce News. "His coverage shows how science can shape public discourse on an important topic." Added freelancer Kathy Sawyer, formerly with The Washington Post: "In digging behind the official estimates, Harris exposed the shortcomings of the BP and government approach to estimating the oil flow."

The judges also gave a "Certificate of Merit" to Gabriel Spitzer of WBEZ in Chicago for a 10 September 2009 report[link: www.wbez.org/story/scitech/science/researchers-probe-how-music-rewires-brain-15] on how music can rewire the brain. They praised his use of radio's story-telling capabilities. John Carey, a freelancer and a former senior correspondent for BusinessWeek, noted Spitzer's "great use of the medium of radio, with sounds that really did paint a picture."

William Saletan
Slate
"The Memory Doctor"
4 June 2010

In his reporting on Loftus, Saletan explored the mutability of memory and the role and power of faked images. His richly textured presentation, with embedded video and relevant footnotes, included an exercise in which Slate, an online magazine, did its own experiment on memory manipulation. By doctoring photo images from recent political history, Saletan showed how even highly informed and educated readers can come to remember bogus political stories as true. Juliet Eilperin of The Washington Post said Saletan's reporting raised important ethical questions about research on implanting false memories. She added that Saletan's "smart use of a thought experiment with readers, illustrative video and comprehensive links demonstrated an authoritative use of online media." Laura Helmuth, senior science editor at Smithsonian magazine, said the entry showed "a masterful understanding of research and its implications." Helmuth noted that Saletan went beyond past profiles of Loftus "to reveal her complicated character." S
