Hinrich Foundation Award for Distinguished Reporting on Trade

Paul Wiseman, Joe McDonald, Anne D’Innocenzio of The Associated Press have won the National Press Foundation’s inaugural Hinrich Foundation Award for Distinguished Reporting on Trade.

NPF judges said: “The AP series offers a big-picture historical look at America’s trade history and the factors driving the trade disputes. The reporters cut through the political rhetoric and dug beneath the headlines to effectively explain the realities of trade on a granular level. The writing is colorful, lively and admirably clear.”

These are the three AP stories:
“In trade wars of 200 years ago, the pirates were Americans”
“Countertops and rubberbands: US pursues obscure trade cases”
“Facing Trump tariffs, some companies, move, change or wait”
