NEW YORK — 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 gal­va­nized the #MeToo move­ment and set off a world­wide reck­on­ing over sex­ual mis­con­duct in the work­place.

The Times and The Wash­ing­ton Post took the award in the na­tional re­port­ing cat­e­gory for their cov­er­age of Rus­sian med­dling in the 2016 U.S. pres­i­den­tial elec­tion and con­tacts be­tween Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s cam­paign and Rus­sian of­fi­cials.

The Press Demo­crat of Santa Rosa, Cal­i­for­nia, re­ceived the break­ing news re­port­ing award for cov­er­age of the wild­fires that swept through Cal­i­for­nia wine coun­try last fall, killing 44 peo­ple and de­stroy­ing thou­sands of homes.
