ProPublica was the only digital-only outlet this year to win (share) a Pulitzer: It helped investigate police abuse of eviction rules, in partnership with the New York Daily News. (Eviction was a winning topic this year: Mathew Desmond’s Evicted got best general nonfiction.) Coincidentally, Sarah Ryley, the Daily News reporter, started at the independent gun violence site The Trace on Monday as an investigative reporter. This was ProPublica’s fourth Pulitzer, and its investigation into algorithms was a finalist for Explanatory Reporting.
4 Pulitzer Prizes in 9 years. Not bad for an independent nonprofit that Spicer recently dismissed as a “left-wing blog.” https://t.co/B83YbmQDJU

The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, with McClatchy and the Miami Herald, won the Explanatory Reporting award for its Panama Papers. We wrote here about how more than 400 reporters collaborated on the Panama Papers through a high-tech process. The group, at first, did not include The New York Times or The Washington Post, perhaps due to initial discomfort with the ICIJ’s “radical sharing” concept.

BuzzFeed News was a finalist for the first time, for Chris Hamby’s Global Super Court reporting.

So 3 Pulitzers for “does major FAKE NEWS!”, 1 for “so false and angry,” 1 for “left-wing blog,” and 1 finalist for “failing pile of garbage”
