BIB How They Did It: Locked On the Psych Ward, BuzzFeed News
BuzzFeed News reporter Rosalind Adams’ year-long investigation into how Universal Health Systems, the nation’s largest chain of psychiatric hospitals, locks patients up for money won a Best in Business for Investigative reporting (large category). Come chat with Adams about how she did it - more than 300 interviews, a stash of internal documents and sophisticated data analysis helped create this fascinating tale, which drew the attention of senators and knocked $2.4 billion off the company’s market value in a week.

BIB How They Did It: The Rent Racket, ProPublica and The Real Deal
This collaboration between ProPublica and The Real Deal produced a powerful series that documented how New York landlords and developers were enjoying massive tax breaks in return for agreeing to limit rent hikes, only to break their promises, which city and state officials didn’t enforce. ProPublica also published a wealth of data to inform New York tenants of their legal rights, including a news application that lets them input their address to learn if their apartment may be rent-stabilized. Hear from lead reporter Cezary Podkul about the challenges of pursuing this project.
