LA Times wins Polk award

The Los Angeles Times won the 2010 George Polk award for local reporting for its coverage of the city of Bell salary scandal.

Rolling Stone's Michael Hastings won for an expose of Gen. Stanley McChrystal - a story that led to McChrystal's being fired. The Associated Press was honored for its investigation into the BP oil spill, and the nonprofit news site ProPublica received two awards, one for a collaboration with Frontline and the Times-Picayune about police abuses after Katrina and the other for a series on brain injuries done with NPR.

The full list of winners is here.
