Panama reporting wins Pulitzer

A Pulitzer Prize for explanatory reporting went on April 10 to a consortium of journalism entities that produced the Panama Papers expose.

The reporting on offshore companies showed interrelationships among financial hideaways linked to mega-banks, drugs, corporate bribery, the Syrian air war and 140-plus politicians in more than 50 nations. Shadowy corporate filings in states like Nevada that allow corporate concealment played a role in the reporting (“Nevada aids and abets,” RN&R, May 12, 2016).

The reporting was done by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, the McClatchy Co., the Miami Herald, Süddeutsche Zeitung and other reporting entities.
