Journalist Andrew Cohen Wins Genesis Award for Coverage of Wild Horse Issue

Award-winning journalist Andrew Cohen, CBS News Legal Analyst and commentator for The Atlantic, has won a Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) Genesis Award for his insightful and continued coverage of the plight of America’s wild horses and the politics surrounding their survival on public lands in the West.

The Genesis Awards, founded by the late actress and animal advocate Gretchen Wyler, honor efforts in the news and entertainment media to raise public awareness of animal issues.

Cohen was announced as the winner of the Genesis Online Award “for incisive reporting on the politics of wild horse management and round-ups” at a star-studded event in Beverly Hills on Saturday night (March 24, 2012). Links to his series of articles, published in The Atlantic online, are below.

AWHPC congratulates Mr. Cohen for this well-deserved award!
