This superb investigative series spotted a dangerous trend in the link between Firestone ATX tire tread separations and fatal accidents in Ford Explorers. Building a database of accident reports nationwide, these reports triggered the recall of more than 6.5 million Firestone tires. In addition, the series spawned numerous government investigations in the United States and abroad. The reports are beautifully shot, creatively produced and sharply edited -- consummate consumer reporting.

The Silver Baton was accepted by investigative reporter Anna Werner.
