Pulitzer winners announced -- did I miss the thread?

    Please tell me the board hasn't declined to the point where no one's talking about the Pulitzers? Or are they no longer relevant? I saw where the Star-Ledger won for feature writing.

    No surprise on the LAT winning the public service award. No-brainer.

    The concept of a journalism award being named after Joseph Pulitzer is an entertaining one and has been for some time.

    Same with Rhodes Scholars.

    You fund 'em, you name 'em, I suppose.

    Interesting there was no Breaking News award this year, which included the Gulf spill.

    Felix Salmon of Reuters points out that the Pulitzer won by the nonprofit ProPublica was the first ever awarded to a story or stories that did not appear in print, only digitally. That's a real landmark.

    I was a bit surprised not to see any mention of the Washington Post project by Dana Priest about national security. I seem to remember that being expected to cause a lot of uproar, though, come to think of it, I was never made aware of major fallout.

    The Star-Ledger reporter used to work at SI.

    The story ran in a 20-page broadsheet special section with no ads -- a massive financial commitment by 2010 journalism standards -- but was serialized over four days online. You would need four or five hours to read the story and the sometimes highly technical graphics material that accompanies it. The video runs about 24 minutes and is likewise impressive work.

    And Haiti, of which the Miami Herald/El Nuevo Herald did fantastic work and was a finalist.

    Thanks for posting that link.
    Also, while not a winner, a reporter from a weekly in Louisiana was a finalist for the local reporting Pulitzer. Very cool.
