Pakistani journalist wins 2014 Peter Mackler award
Asma Shirazi, Pakistan’s first female war correspondent and host of popular TV talk shows, was named 2014 Winner of Peter Mackler Award for Courageous and Ethical Journalism on Friday. Shirazi reported on conflicts that include the 2006 Israel-Lebanon war, Taliban violence on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border in 2009 and General Pervez Musharraf’s 2007 state of emergency. “We are thrilled to recognize the courage and dedication to journalistic ethics that Ms. Shirazi has displayed every day of her career,” said Camille Mackler, Project Director for the Peter Mackler Award. At great personal risk and defying death threats, Shirazi ensures “that unbiased, free information is available throughout Pakistan,” Mackler said.
