Scoop Awarded 2002 Democratic Media Reform Award

Esteemed Colleague,

SCOOP has been selected by our team of progressive writers and distinguished readers as eminently deserving of recognition as an outstanding representative of democratic, independent media and is hereby awarded the 2002 Sunflower Symbol of Democratic Media Reform.

SCOOP, along with other recipients of the award worldwide, is encouraged to display this award both online and in print in an effort to add impetus to the growing global movement dedicated to fairness, balance, and integrity in reporting. We also invite you to duplicate our roster of Independent Media Resources ( in your own publication, which will enhance public awareness by providing access to good alternative media from many locations on the Internet.

This award implies no obligation of any kind other than your already dedicated commitment to serving the public interest. A truly free press is the indispensable water that keeps the Tree of Democracy growing and alive.

We congratulate you on your important work.
