Awards[edit] In 1995 The National Press Foundation named Coffey as its Editor of the Year in recognition of coverage by the Los Angeles Times of the 1992 Los Angeles riots, the 1994 Northridge earthquake and the 1994 O.J. Simpson Trial.[2] He received the Ida B. Wells Award in 1995 "for exemplary achievement in the hiring and advancement of minorities in the news media."[2]

Memberships[edit] Coffey is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the International Press Institute. He was on the board of the Pacific Council on International Policy.[2]

Controversies[edit] During Coffey's term as editor of the L.A. Times, the paper published a lengthy three part series examining the claims made in Gary Webb's 1996 "Dark Alliance" newspaper series. Webb had claimed that members of the Contra rebels in Nicaragua played a major role in creating the U.S. crack cocaine trade, using their smuggling profits to support their guerrilla war against Nicaragua's Sandinista government. The Times series found the "Dark Alliance" claims overstated, but was itself criticized[by whom?] for using anonymous sources, taking government claims too credulously, and failing to pursue Webb's story further.[3][4]
