James Risen, the 2014 Elijah Parish Lovejoy Award recipient, recently released a book on government spending and strategies in the war on terror. Risen says the book, Pay Any Price: Greed, Power, and Endless War, is his response to the U.S. government. “The one thing that the government doesn’t want to see is more aggressive investigative reporting,” he told the Huffington Post. Risen incorporated this theme into his Lovejoy Award acceptance speech at Colby Oct. 5, saying President Obama “hates the press.”
