Close Friend of the Mag Takes Home Pulitzer

AP reporters win for series on NYPD spying on Muslims

Print Email

They already won a Polk, but today, the Associated Press reporters Matt Apuzzo, Adam Goldman, Eileen Sullivan, and Chris Hawley won the Pulitzer Prize (the frickin’ Pulitzer Prize!) for Investigative Reporting for their look at the New York Police Department’s extensive spying on nearby Muslim communities, including, extraordinarily, in collaboration with the CIA.

The news hits close to home because at times Jews, including a Persian Jewish community on Long Island, were ensnared in the NYPD’s at times dubious practices.

It also hits close to home because of Goldman. He is a friend of Tablet Magazine. Specifically: He is the husband of senior writer Allison Hoffman. So, mazel tov to the AP, and especially to Adam!

Update: We are also excited to announce that Tablet contributor Eli Sanders won the Pulitzer for feature writing for his report in The Stranger, a Seattle weekly, on the trial of the man who tortured a lesbian couple in Seattle and murdered one of the women. Eli most recently wrote for Tablet about the growing Jewish community in Portland, Ore.
