While the White House Correspondents’ Dinner is still a few weeks away, the White House House Correspondents’ Association has released the list of recipients of some of the top journalistic prizes in the industry. Among the big winners is The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman for her insider reports on the Trump Administration that the WHCA says “often conveyed the feeling of being a fly on the wall of the White House.”
Other winners include CNN, whose team consisting of Evan Perez, Jim Sciutto, Jake Tapper, and Carl Bernstein whose reporting on the Russia-Trump story in January netted them The Merriman Smith Award.
Reuters reporters Jason Szep, Peter Eisler, Tim Reid, Lisa Girion, and Grant Smith were awarded the Edgar A. Poe Award for their reports on tasers in police brutality cases.
WHCA President Margaret Talev said in a statement that the Correspondents’ Association “congratulates these award winners, and we’re proud to honor them at our annual dinner as we celebrate the First Amendment and the crucial role of journalism in informing and protecting the public.”
The White House Correspondents’ Dinner takes place on April 28th. You can read the full list of honorees here.
