Washington Post Wins 6 Pulitzer Prizes - New York Times
Congrats to the Post and the NY times. The Post has done a magnificent job – especially with the Walter Reed stories. They are a fantastic example of investigative journalism and leveraging the name of a powerful newspaper for the 'public good.' Reports on the political power of Dick Cheney and the importance and use of military contractors also took the prestigious prize.
I'm very happy to see that the prize is still being given to the deserving. Granted I know none of the 'behind-the-scenes' story here (overt reference to The Wire), but these are, in my opinion, the top stories of the year. The Pulitzers are no Oscars – the really do matter.
