—CBS News, for an Anthony Mason story on life and debt in this country done on “The CBS Evening News With Katie Couric” and for a Bob Simon story about “The King of Such” for “60 Minutes.”
—“NOW on PBS,” one for a story by Paul Beban on the rise of India and one for a story by Maria Hinojosa on “Taxing the Poor.”
—Bloomberg, both for reports anchored by Mike Schneider, one on hidden 401(K) fees and the other on the human toll of ethanol.
In addition, one Emmy each went to CNBC, for a “Business Nation” report by David Faber titled “Field of Dreams”; and to Minyanville.com for its “World in Review” feature.
Reuters Editor-in-Chief David Schlesinger, whose international news agency is a primary business source, also took home the Lifetime Achievement Award.
