NBC News conducted a 15-month investigation and interviewed more than 250 people to reveal a disturbing pattern of “paper reviews” by major insurance companies to reduce their payments to accident victims. Citing State Farm Insurance as an example, correspondent John Larson interviews a writer with no medical training who had written second opinions that were purportedly made by a doctor. The duPont Jury praised this full-length “Dateline” report for using compelling cases to examine insurance industry practices.

The Silver Baton was accepted by correspondent John Larson.
