Matt Apuzzo Career
While in college, he contributed to the Waterville Morning Sentinel. He subsequently moved to the Associated Press after working for The Standard-Times in New Bedford, Massachusetts. He exposed corruption and malfeasance inside the New York City Police Department, as well as its collusion with the CIA to conduct surveillance in Muslim neighborhoods. With Adam Goldman, Eileen Sullivan, and Chris Hawley, he received the Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting in 2012. Enemies Within, a book co-authored by Apuzzo and Adam Goldman, was published in 2013. In 2013, it was revealed that the Justice Department secretly subpoenaed his phone records as part of a leak investigation into who provided the Associated Press information about a bomb plot foiled by the CIA. It was later revealed that the Justice Department had conducted leak investigations into his stories twice before. He has been highly critical of government secrecy and the media’s willingness to accept it. He has been a reporter for The New York Times since 2013, and he also teaches journalism at Georgetown University. Apuzzo broke many articles for the New York Times concerning the Justice Department’s civil rights initiatives and national security charges. He broke the story in January 2015 that the FBI and Justice Department were proposing that former C.I.A. director David Petraeus be prosecuted with a crime for leaking classified national security material. In April 2015, Apuzzo and his colleague Michael S. Schmidt released video evidence of a white police officer shooting an unarmed black man fleeing from him in North Charleston, South Carolina. A report by Apuzzo and Michael S. Schmidt on the Hillary Clinton email scandal, published in July 2015, prompted criticism from Mrs. Clinton’s campaign and allies, including Margaret Sullivan, the Times public editor. In April 2017, Washington Post media commentator Erik Wemple exonerated Apuzzo and Schmidt of misconduct in connection with the article, stating that the Times had, if anything, exaggerated the gravity of the government’s investigation against Mrs. Clinton. Apuzzo and two other Times reporters authored a series of stories in 2016 about how American torture policies in the years after Sept. 11, 2001, attacks had led to long-lasting mental health issues for those detainees tortured by Americans. The stories were one of the first accounts of the mental health toll created by American torture policies. He shared in the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for national reporting for the newspaper’s coverage of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. In June 2018, the Times announced Apuzzo had been appointed Investigative Correspondent in Brussels and would be moving from the Washington bureau to join the International Desk from August 2018.
