Reporting on gun violence figured prominently with the South Florida Sun-Sentinel winning an award for its coverage of last year’s massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for its breaking news coverage of the mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue. Reporters from the The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal were recognized for their reporting on President Trump.
