Pulitzer Prize 2023: who was awarded – there is a surprise – media

23 prizes, an announcement via live broadcast and the whole thing in an almost comical way unspectacular: At the presentation of the highest award in US journalism, a lot is going as expected. But there is at least one surprise.

In a series of articles, a team of reporters revealed how police in the neighboring town of Brookside deliberately ambushed residents in order to increase revenue from fines. As a result, the local police chief had to resign, and four new laws to protect citizens were passed. This would not have happened without this kind of persistent local journalism.
