Duterte-police drug link wins Pulitzer for Reuters | Bangkok Post: news

Kendrick Lamar is officially a Pulitzer Prize victor.

The stories' impact soon spread beyond Weinstein to allegations against other prominent men, and the #MeToo hashtag quickly became a rallying cry for people to speak out about their own experiences of sexual harassment and assault.

The awards were given out Monday at an announcement at New York's Columbia University.

The Times also shared the national reporting Pulitzer with rival the Washington Post, in recognition of each newspaper's dedicated coverage of Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election.

Reuters won a Pulitzer Prize for worldwide reporting that revealed links between Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and police assassination squads, and also won a prize for feature photography of the Rohingya migrant crisis, the prize administrator said on Monday.

In awarding the prestigious prize, the Pulitzer committee cited the album as "a virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life".

Lamar has been praised and lauded for his deep lyrical content, remarkable live performances, and his profound mix of hip-hop, spoken word, jazz, soul, funk, poetry and African sounds.
