American journalism is in crisis, under assault and literally disappearing in a growing number of news deserts across the country. The Justice Department has even eliminated a section on the “need for [a] free press” from its U.S. Attorneys’ Manual.

"The ‘People’s Pulitzers’ Salute Those Who Give Voice to the Powerless" is from the May 01, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by Katrina vanden Heuvel and narrated by Sam Scholl.
