NYT and New Yorker win joint Pulitzer for Weinstein exposé

WEB DESK

The New York Times and The New Yorker have jointly won the Pulitzer Prize, in the Public Service category for Weinstein exposé. They uncovered the long-running Harvey Weinstein saga of sexual harassment and abuse in Hollywood last October. The most prestigious honour in American journalism was awarded for reports that brought down the disgraced media mogul and sparked movements such as #MeToo and Time’s Up.

The Washington Post won the investigative reporting prize for revealing decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct against Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama. The Republican former judge denied the accusations, but they factored heavily in the special election that the Democratic candidate Doug Jones went on to win.

The New York Times also shared a second prize with The Washington Post for coverage of Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 US presidential election. In the music category, Rapper Kendrick Lamar created history by being the first non-classical or jazz artist to win Pulitzer Prize for his album ‘D.A.M.N.’. The 30-year-old artist is known to have had a deep impact on a racially fraught America and has emerged as the bona fide King of Rap.

Andrew Sean Greer took home the Pulitzer in Fiction for his comic queer novel “Less”. In Letters and Drama category, Caroline Fraser’s Prairie Fires won the prestigious award for Biography and Martyna Majok’s acclaimed off-Broadway play ‘Cost of Living’ won the Pulitzer for Drama.

Prizes are awarded yearly in twenty-one categories. In 20 of the categories, each winner receives a certificate and a 15,000 US Dollar cash award.
