The New York Times and The New Yorker magazine have won the Pulitzer Prize for public service for their series of sexual harassment stories that prompted the #MeToo movement, and the Times and The Washington Post won the Pulitzer for national reporting for their work uncovering possible ties between President Trump’s campaign team and Russia.
The Post also won a Pulitzer for its investigative reporting for its revelations about the sexual misconduct of Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, supported by President Trump. (Former Arkansas Gazette reporter Tom Hamburger contributed to the stories.)
Waiting for a tweet from @realdonaldtrump about what hogwash the Pulitzer Prize is. Sad!
The Times’ sexual harassment reporting, which started with coverage of Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly and was followed by revelations about Hollywood film mogul Harvey Weinstein, triggered an avalanche of news about harassment of women in the workplace.
The Times won a third Pulitzer for a series of editorial cartoons on Syrian refugees.
