NY Times wins Scripps Howard Award in business category
The New York Times has won the Scripps Howard Award in the business and financial category.
The award is for “The President’s Taxes,” reporting on former President Trump’s tax returns that published well ahead of the 2020 presidential election, giving the public some insights into his financial dealings before going to the polls.
The judges stated, “Americans were able to learn, ahead of the election, how a very wealthy, seemingly successful icon of American business could receive a tax bill for $750.”
During a virtual awards show livestream on Facebook and YouTube, the Scripps Howard Foundation presented $160,000 in prize money to the winning organizations and journalists, including the winner of the coveted Impact Award.
