PR Award Recipient, 1988
The Nicaraguan newspaper (“The Press”), based in Managua, was honored for its open opposition to the ruling Sandinista party. Due to that opposition, no one from the newspaper’s staff made the trip to accept the award, for fear of reprisal. National Commander John P. Comer made a speech in the staff’s absence.
