Winners of the 2018 Pulitzer Prizes were announced at Columbia University in New York City on Monday. The Pulitzers are highly revered and mark the best in journalism in 14 categories.
Neil Brown, Poynter’s president, is a member of the Pulitzer Prize board. While he said he can’t discuss last week’s deliberations, he offered:
