A US newspaper Capital Gadget received the Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the firing incident in the newsroom. At the same time, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal have also received Pulitzer for the details related to American President Donald Trump. According to BBC, in Maryland when the Capitol gadget found to win the most prestigious awards, it did not celebrate there. At the same time, the staff quietly remembered five of their colleagues, whose gunmen had killed in a firefighting shootout in his office in June 2018.

Capitol Gadget in Anapolis won a special Pulitzer Prize for his coverage and courage in one of the most deadly attacks on journalists in American history. Pulitzer Board gave the citation with a grant of $ 100,000 to the newspaper. Two other local newspapers also received Pulitzer for the coverage of mass firing incidents.

Let's say that in the last summer's attack, newspaper staff members John McCannara, Wendy Winters, Rebecca Smith, Gerald Fichmann and Rob Hyacsen were killed in the firing. But the employees still managed to publish the newsletter on the next day. The Pittsburgh Post-Gadget received the Breaking News Award for reporting on an attack on a Jewish religious place in Pennsylvania last October.

At the same time, Sun Sentinel of South Florida won the Pulitzer for reporting the firing in Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in February 2018, in which 17 people were killed. It received the Public Service Award to highlight the failures of the school and law enforcement officers before and after the fatal shooting.

The New York Times won an award for another editorial writing for explanatory reporting about Trump's avoidance of finance and tax. The Wall Street Journal won the National Shooting Award for highlighting the payments made by the President secretly for the silence of two alleged former mistresses during the 2016 presidential campaign campaign. The Washington Post also won two Pulitzer Prizes for photo journalism in Yemen and for Critics.
