As I sat down to write for this space, a news alert flashed on the television screen. It read like this: US President Trump in his tweet calls Maggie Haberman a third rate reporter. Had a fortnight earlier Trump named Haberman, I like many people living in other parts of the globe, would have wondered who she was. But with Pulitzer Award winner list-2018 being declared just a week earlier and fresh in mind, there was no difficulty in placing her. Haberman was one of the awardees. Though Pulitzer awards carry a ‘by American, for American and of American’ tag, yet, they attract attention world over. Receiving a Pulitzer is the ultimate achievement for an American print media professional.
