After the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service was awarded to The Washington Post, reporters and editors gather in the newsroom in Washington Monday, April 14, 2014, as contributing writer Barton Gellman describes the effort that went into a series of stories on the government’s massive surveillance program based on information leaked by National Security Agency employee Edward Snowden. The disclosures showed that the NSA has collected information about millions of Americans’ phone calls and emails based on its classified interpretations of laws passed after the 2001 terrorist attacks. The Pulitzer Prizes, journalism’s highest honor, are given out each year by Columbia University on the recommendation of a board of journalists and others. This is Gellman’s third Pulitzer honor.
