The Times and The New Yorker Share Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.

Source: nyt

The New York Times and The New Yorker magazine won the Pulitzer Prize for public service on Monday for their reporting on sexual harassment that ushered in a reckoning about the treatment of women by powerful men in the uppermost ranks of Hollywood, politics, media and technology.

Beginning with revelations in The Times about the Fox News anchor Bill OíReilly, followed by reports about the film mogul Harvey Weinstein published by The Times and The New Yorker, the coverage set off a cascade of testimonials from women about abuse in the workplace, whether at a Beverly Hills hotel or a Ford Motor plant in the Midwest. By yearís end, what came to be known as the #MeToo movement had reshaped the modern conversation around gender and fairness.

At a time when President Trump regularly assails the news media, the Pulitzer board awarded its national reporting prize to The Times and The Washington Post, for coverage that unearthed possible ties between Russia and Mr. Trumpís inner circle. The dramatic storyline continues to dominate Washington politics.

The Post also won the award for investigative reporting for its exposť of Roy S. Moore, the Republican Senate candidate in Alabama, whose bid for higher office was upturned after the Post uncovered that he had groped and harassed multiple women, one as young as 14.

Congrats to the winners, the "Failing" New York Times, and the wonderful New Yorker magazine (to which I subscribe).
