[Commentary] The Mirror Awards -- sponsored by Syracuse University's S.I Newhouse School of Public Communications -- honored reporters, editors and teams of writers "who hold a mirror to their own industry for the public's benefit." So who's the fairest of them all? To O'Connor, not the Big Media boys like David Carr of The New York Times, whose weekly column won for 'Best Commentary,' or Philip Weiss and Clive Thompson of New York magazine, who won for 'Best Profile' and 'Best Single Article,' respectively -- as worthy as their entries may have been. Instead, O'Connor's favorite was culled from Nieman Reports, the small publication of The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University. The category was 'Best Coverage of Breaking Industry News,' and the author is Dean Miller, executive editor of the definitely small and obscure Post Register in Idaho Falls, Idaho.
