The Fair Media Council, a Bethpage-based nonprofit media watchdog group, honored the Long Island Press with the title of Best Newspaper at the 2020 Folio Awards.
“For our judging process, we bring together about 50 distinguished community leaders with varied backgrounds and interests to judge news and social media campaigns using a scorecard method,” said Fair Media Council Executive Director Jaci Clement. “Developed with the help of Bob Greene, the late Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter from Newsday, reporting news stories are scored for relevance, quality, originality and completeness, which really illustrates the storytelling and editing ability of a newsroom grappling with the public’s diminishing attention span.”
