Ottawa Citizen - - WORLD -

The New York Times and The New Yorker won the Pulitzer Prize for pub­lic ser­vice Mon­day for break­ing the Har­vey We­in­stein scan­dal with re­port­ing that set off a reck­on­ing over sex­ual race and con­tacts be­tween U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s cam­paign and Rus­sian of­fi­cials. The Wash­ing­ton Post also won the in­ves­tiga­tive re­port­ing prize for re­veal­ing al­le­ga­tions against U.S. Sen­ate can­di­date Roy Moore.

Pulitzer ad­min­is­tra­tor Dana Canedy said the win­ners “up­hold the high­est pur­pose of a free and in­de­pen­dent press, even in the most try­ing of times.”
