His investigative reports on the labor movement, the environment, race relations and urban policy have garnered numerous accolades, including the 1998 George Polk Award for commentary and a 2004 Leadership Award from the National Hispanic Heritage Foundation. On Democracy Now his exclusive interviews, along with host Amy Goodman, of international leaders such as Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, Bolivia’s Evo Morales and Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, have repeatedly broken major news.
