The Wall Street Journal: Sexual-misconduct coverage earns Pulitzers for New York Times, New Yorker

The New York Times was awarded three Pulitzer Prizes, including the award for public-service journalism, while the Reuters news agency won two.

The Times shared the public-service award with the New Yorker for stories that uncovered allegations of sexual harassment by movie producer Harvey Weinstein and others, coverage that helped reset the national conversation about sexual harassment and assault of women.

The Reuters news agency was awarded two Pulitzers: one for international reporting on a brutal campaign cracking down on drugs in the Philippines, and a second for feature photography looking at abuses against the Rohingya minority people in Myanmar.

The Times shared a national reporting prize with the Washington Post for coverage of Russia’s role in influencing the 2016 U.S. election and its connections with the campaign of President Donald Trump. The Times also won an award for editorial cartooning. The Post also won for investigative journalism for detailing decades-old allegations of sexual predation against underage girls by Roy Moore, a Republican candidate for the Senate in Alabama.
