The Washington Post
Founded in 1877, The Washington Post is an American daily newspaper published in Washington, D.C., and the most widely circulated newspaper within the Washington metropolitan area. The newspaper has won 69 Pulitzer Prizes. This includes six separate Pulitzers awarded in 2008, second only to The New York Times's seven awards in 2002 for the highest number ever awarded to a single newspaper in one year. In the early 1970s, in the best-known episode in the newspaper's history, reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein led the American press's investigation into what became known as the Watergate scandal. Their reporting in The Washington Post greatly contributed to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. Washington Post Live is the newsroom’s live journalism platform.
