You would think that high profile awards – the kind that can afford posh locations like The Savoy, London – would do some basic research and Google their potential nominees before publishing them. Particularly if they’re sponsored by Google. (For bonus points, you could read their Wikipedia page too!)
Well, you’d think wrong. Either that or they just don’t care.
So, without further comment, the European Diversity Awards shortlist for “Journalist of the Year”. The emphasis is mine.
Cast Media Group – Journalist of the Year
Recognising the outstanding contribution of journalists in the field of equality, diversity and inclusion, the award is open to journalists in the broadcast, print and online media from across Europe.

For those politically inclined in the LGBT equality sphere, you may also spot a couple of other perhaps slightly controversial names in the full shortlists.
