The 2012 Pulitzers, and What They Say About News

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Ninety-five years ago, the very first Pulitzer Prizes for Journalism were awarded to a few good newspapers. A lot has changed since 1917. Today, the prizes are given to a full range journalistic tools, including interactive graphics, blogs, videos and newspapers that are only published online — like the Huffington Post, which won a Pulitzer yesterday.
