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.

The Press Demo­crat of Santa Rosa, Cal­i­for­nia, re­ceived the break­ing news re­port­ing award for cov­er­age of the wild­fires that swept through Cal­i­for­nia last fall.

The Wash­ing­ton Post also won the in­ves­tiga­tive re­port­ing prize for re­veal­ing decades-old al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual mis­con­duct against Sen­ate can­di­date Roy Moore of Alabama.

Rap star Ken­drick La­mar was awarded the Pulitzer for mu­sic, be­com­ing the first non­clas­si­cal or non­jazz artist to win the prize.
