BuzzFeed News Has Won Its First Pulitzer Prize

Source: Buzzfeed News

BuzzFeed News won a Pulitzer Prize on Friday for a series of innovative articles that used satellite images, 3D architectural models, and daring in-person interviews to expose China’s vast infrastructure for detaining hundreds of thousands of Muslims in its Xinjiang region. The Pulitzer Prize is the highest honor in journalism, and this is the digital outlet’s first win since it was founded in 2012.

And the FinCEN Files series from BuzzFeed News and the International Consortium of Journalists, the largest-ever investigative reporting project, which exposed corruption in the global banking industry, was honored as a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. A former US Treasury Official was sentenced to prison just last week for leaking the thousands of secret government documents that served as its genesis.

The Xinjiang series won in the International Reporting category and was recognized as a finalist in the Explanatory Reporting category, and the FinCEN Files was recognized as a finalist in the International Reporting category. BuzzFeed News has been a Pulitzer finalist twice before.

Pulitzer Prizes were also awarded to the Minneapolis Star Tribune for their coverage of George Floyd’s killing by police and its aftermath. Darnella Frazier, the teen who recorded the viral video of Floyd’s death, received a special citation from the Pulitzer Prizes. The Boston Globe won for investigative reporting that uncovered systemic failures by state governments to share information about dangerous truck drivers. Ed Yong of the Atlantic won the Explanatory Reporting prize for his pieces on the COVID-19 pandemic. He shared the prize with a team of Reuters reporters for their examination of how “qualified immunity” shields police who use excessive force from prosecution.

1. The beauty of this is that Fox News has never won any prestigious awards for journalism.

2. Isn't Fox noise billed as 'entertainment'.....

instead of news and journalism? I thought I read that somewhere, but I could be mistaken. I'm starting to commit many more mistakes with each passing year.

Even as 'entertainment ' they suck.

6. Only ones marketed as news is Chris Wallace on Sunday morning and

there's one in the weekday afternoon, and it leans far right. All their evening SHIT is billed entertainment.
Stupid reQublicans actually believe they're getting factual news. Lots of idiots in their party.

7. Fox does little to advertise that....

and even less to discourage their "entertainment" as NOT being actual news. They're as dishonest a bunch that's ever touched America's shores. The Murdochs should keep their "entertainment" confined to Australia's outback.

5. My exact first thought!

Of course you have to be a news organization and not the mouthpiece for a corrupt, vile, hate machine deflecting the blows from actual news organizations. That may be a bit disqualify.... Hey! I don’t make the rules!

3. Good, finally, it's overdue.

Buzzfeed, Mother Jones, The Rolling Stone, and ferkrissakes even Teen Vogue have broken great stories over the years while the big 3 networks and the NYT just sort of sat there slackjawed, afraid to piss Dumdum off.

8. I know, freaking Teen Vogue!

No matter how many times it happens, my jaw drops when I'm reading an article excerpt and thinking "Right on! Why is no one else saying this!!" and then I realize it's from Teen Vogue...



Labor rights, racism, leftist analysis, climate, I am just always amazed that it is from not only a Conde Nast publication, but TEEN VOGUE!

9. Corporate media monopolies are failing this country

and only publications around the edges are doing real reporting.

10. MSM

News from Guardian, Rolling Stone, Wired, and even Amanpour is better than any US MSM; I like Rachel Maddow but only if its taped; MSM is two minute soundbites followed by two minutes of inane commercials; drives me nuts.
