Journalism award for Uganda film

[video:google:-7506651516025190367] The RFK Memorial Journalism Award goes to HDNet for their World Report programme, "A Silent War, A Violent Peace," about Uganda's civil war. The award will be presented at the Newseum tonight, according to TVNewser,
"Kira Kay and Jason Maloney risked their lives to do the Uganda story, and to be recognized with an RFK is quite gratifying," says Dennis O'Brien, EP of News and Documentaries for HDNet. "We're not focused on minute-by-minute ratings; we're focused on building an organization that the viewer knows he or she can turn to for serious journalism, truly independent news and analysis." link
