LA Times Wins Pulitzer Prize for Exposing Big Salaries

The Los Angeles Times won two Pulitzer Prizes on Monday for public service for stories uncovering shocking financial corruption in the City of Bell, and the other for Photographer Barbara Davidson.
Davidson won in the feature category, according to the Los Angeles Times. She recorded photos of the aftermath of violent crime for victims and their families.
Since 1941, the Los Angeles Times has won 41 Pulitzer Prizes.
Davidson had to persuade her editors that the images were relevant because they were taken when crime was in decline, according to the New York Times.
The other award was given to John Gottleib, Rueben Vives, and other reporters for their reporting on Bell officials secretly giving themselves large benefits.
