Jamal Khashoggi is the Washington Post columnist murdered for his criticism of the Saudi crown prince.
Maria Ressa is the editor of a Philippine news website renowned for its critical coverage of its president’s controversially violent policies.
Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo are two Reuters journalists who were arrested in Myanmar while investigating a massacre of Rohingya Muslims.
"His murder has prompted a global reassessment of the Saudi crown prince and a really long overdue look at the devastating war in Yemen.".
"The public narrative of Mueller's investigation this year has often described its central character more as myth than man.".
Others who made the 2018 shortlist include the student activists who led a march on Washington — and hundreds of satellite marches across the world. »
