New York Times and New Yorker win a Pulitzer for their reporting that kicked off the #MeToo movement
Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey of The Times are sharing Pulitzer Prize for public service with Ronan Farrow of The New Yorker for exposing Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct scandal. The Pulitzer board stated its award is "for explosive, impactful journalism that exposed powerful and wealthy sexual predators, including allegations against one of Hollywood’s most influential producers, bringing them to account for long-suppressed allegations of coercion, brutality and victim silencing, thus spurring a worldwide reckoning about sexual abuse of women."

Two female reporters broke the Harvey Weinstein story, yet they never got to visit Stephen Colbert like Ronan Farrow
Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey of The New York Times first reported the bombshell sexual misconduct allegations against Weinstein on Oct. 5. Farrow followed up with his own story in The New Yorker five days later. Yet it is Farrow who has been receiving the bulk of the attention as “the man who took down Weinstein,” including a visit to The Late Show. “Farrow’s work has, of course, been excellent. But so has Kantor and Twohey’s,” says Emily Stewart. “Where are their profiles, or their TV appearances?“ She adds: “That a woman’s role in a major event, place, or time would be diminished is not a new phenomenon.”
