WEINSTEIN STORIES WIN PULITZER FOR PUBLIC SERVICE
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 misconduct in the workplace.
The Times and the Washington Post took the national reporting award for their coverage of the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential 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.”
