“In 2003 I was named Newspaper Editor Of The Year for the Daily Mirror’s campaign against the Iraq War, and in 2013 I was GQ’s TV Personality Of The Year for my campaign at CNN against America’s insane gun culture.

“I lost both the jobs I won the awards for within a few months of the ceremonies, which rather took the gloss off things.”
