A story from on the winners of the Livingston Awards:

Local Reporting

Alex Stuckey, 31,  of the Houston Chronicle for “In Crisis,” an investigation of Texas’ mental health facilities, revealing an underfunded system shrouded in secrecy, where patient care takes a backseat to blame-avoidance. Her work prompted new state procedures and legislation to begin to address these problems.

National Reporting

Jose Del Real, 31, of The Washington Post for “Truth, Trust and Conspiracy Theories in America,” a series examining viral disinformation, how it spreads and the impact it has on the personal relationships of those involved.
