Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold, whom President Donald Trump called a “nasty guy” for doggedly investigating his dubious charity foundation claims, won the Pulitzer Prize on Monday for national reporting.
Fahrenthold not only pored over documents and called hundreds of organizations while reporting on the president’s charitable foundation during the 2016 campaign, but brought readers real-time social media updates and turned to them for additional tips.
In October, Fahrenthold also broke the news that Trump boasted about groping women in an unearthed “Access Hollywood” outtake.
We are seeing a real resurgence of quality journalism in response to Donald Trump, and I predict this is just the first of many prizes that journalists will be winning due to their investigations into Trump, his presidency, and his business dealings.
I bet this news is really burning his ass.
Kind of like when Katie Couric won that Walter Cronkite award for her interviews with Sarah Palin.
