On April 3, 2016, FUSION, along with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and more than 100 other news organizations, released the Panama Papers, a series of investigations into offshore finance. Today, Columbia University announced that the year-long Panama Papers investigation has been awarded the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting.
FUSION produced a series of digital reports as well as a one hour documentary “The Naked Truth: Dirty Little Secrets.” FUSION was the only U.S. media partner to produce a documentary in English. Check out the reporting here.
The Pulitzer Prize Board lauded year-long investigation for “using a collaboration of more than 300 reporters on six continents to expose the hidden infrastructure and global scale of offshore tax havens.”
“This honor is a testament to the enterprise and teamwork of our staff and our partners here in the United States and around the world,” Gerard Ryle, ICIJ’s director, said. “We’re honored that the Pulitzer Board recognized the groundbreaking revelations and worldwide impact that the Panama Papers collaboration produced.”
