The New York Press Club announced Thursday that Jeff Horwitz and the staff of the Wall Street Journal are the 2022 recipients of the club’s highest award, The Gold Keyboard.

The Journal reporters were recognized for their series of investigative stories titled “The Facebook Files“ on the social media site’s “flaws that cause harm, often in ways only the company fully understands.”
