New York Times Wins Pulitzer For Reporting On Putin's Power Plays

The Pulitzers, given out by Columbia University, are the most prestigious prizes in American journalism for newspaper and digital news coverage.

In the least-surprising news of the week, David Fahrenthold of the Washington Post won the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting, for his exhaustive reporting on Donald Trump and the Trump Foundation's shady dealings.

Fahrenthold investigated not only Trump's claims of charitable giving but also disclosed that the Republican presidential candidate had boasted in crude terms about groping women in a 2005 videotape.

From Japan, Kyodo News and The Asahi Shimbun took part in the ICIJ work from the beginning, while Japanese public broadcaster NHK joined it later.

Not every work honored involved the 45th president, however-ProPublica and the New York Daily News shared the Pulitzer Prize for public service for a series chronicling the NYPD's widespread abuse of eviction law.

Freelance photographer Daniel Berehulak won the Pulitzer for breaking news photography for images published in "The New York Times" showing about the Philippines's war on drugs.

Pulitzer Prize Administrator Mike Pride announced this year's crop of winners and the list is full of Black excellence.

ProPublica is just nine years old but has won four Pulitzers, partly through its innovative collaborations with other news organizations.

But I hope he stays for the good of Monaco, but we know how the market works and what football is like". We will see what happens this summer - we expect it to be a long one.

In the Post's newsroom, Fahrenthold thanked his colleagues and also his Twitter followers, since tips from readers helped him uncover more information about Trump's donations.

War reporter C.J. Chivers won the Pulitzer for feature writing for a piece we ranked as one of our favorite longform stories of a year ago: "The Fighter", the story of Sam Siatta, a Marine Corps veteran arrested and charged with home invasion.

The prize for International Reporting was awarded to staffers at The New York Times.

The New York Times won three Pulitzers in all - the most of any newspaper in 2016 - taking the prizes for feature writing and breaking news photography as well worldwide reporting.

Michele McNally, assistant editor and director of photography of The New York Times; David Furst, global picture editor; photojournalist Daniel Berehulak, celebrate the announcement of the 2017 Pulitzer Prizes in The Times newsroom, in New York, April 10, 2017.

A board of editors, publishers, writers and educators voted on 21 categories of journalism, letters, drama, poetry and music.

Peggy Noonan of The Wall Street Journal won a Pulitzer Prize for her commentary on the 2016 election. The Sentinel has been a Pulitzer finalist seven other times, the most recent in 2013 in the local reporting category for its investigation into hazing rituals of the marching band at Florida A&M University. The powerful piece showed "through an artful accumulation of fact and detail, that a Marine's postwar descent into violence reflected neither the actions of a simple criminal nor a stereotypical case of PTSD".

Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk.
