2014 Media For Liberty Award Honors Pacific Standard’s "The Deluge" By Vince Beiser

Liberty Media Corporation (Nasdaq: LMCA, LMCB) today announced that the winning entry of its fifth annual Media for Liberty Award is "The Deluge," a story by Vince Beiser that appeared in the March/April 2013 issue of Pacific Standard magazine.

“The Deluge” artfully surveys the enormous technological innovations being made worldwide that are unlocking an abundance of new oil and natural gas supplies—enough to power the world for years to come. Those innovations are reshaping the geopolitical map, undermining traditional oil powers from Saudi Arabia to Russia and propelling new countries into leading roles. Vince Beiser takes readers inside these developments, from Brazil’s offshore platforms to North Dakota’s fracking fields, to examine the political, economic and environmental implications of this new energy order.

"The Media for Liberty Award seeks to recognize journalists who examine the complicated relationship between economic and political liberty,” said John Malone, Chairman of Liberty Media. “On behalf of the jury panel, we congratulate Vince for confronting the widely assumed notion of oil’s depleting supply and introducing us to a future of infinite industrial and economic possibilities with vast changes in the geo-political landscape.”

"The Deluge" by Vince Beiser for Pacific Standard magazine will be celebrated at a ceremony hosted by Liberty Media on Tuesday, May 20 th, at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.

The Media for Liberty Award is a $50,000 journalism prize that recognizes media contributions that examine the link between economic and political liberty. Print, broadcast and online submissions were judged on criteria including thematic relevance, educational value and relevance to the public discourse.
