Washington Post and Guardian Win Pulitzer For Snowden Reports
The Pulitzer Prize in Journalism for Public Service was awarded to the Washington Post and Guardian jointly for their Snowden reports.Snowden’s lawyer, Jesselyn Radack, notes it’s “bittersweet” that the Pulitzer went to the “safe choice” of the two publications, rather than the individuals that were responsible for the stories. Meanwhile, a statement from Edward Snowden was posted by the Freedom of Press Foundation: 


I am grateful to the committee for their recognition of the efforts of those involved in the last year’s reporting, and join others around the world in congratulating Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras, Barton Gellman, Ewen MacAskill, and all of the others at the Guardian and Washington Post on winning the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.Today’s decision is a vindication for everyone who believes that the public has a role in government. We owe it to the efforts of the brave reporters and their colleagues who kept working in the face of extraordinary intimidation, including the forced destruction of journalistic materials, the inappropriate use of terrorism laws, and so many other means of pressure to get them to stop what the world now recognizes was work of vital public importance.This decision reminds us that what no individual conscience can change, a free press can. My efforts would have been meaningless without the dedication, passion, and skill of these newspapers, and they have my gratitude and respect for their extraordinary service to our society. Their work has given us a better future and a more accountable democracy.
