The Pulitzers Get It Right (for a change)
I have never had a particularly high opinion of the Pulitzer Prize awards, primarily because I usually go straight to the awards for the arts, rather than dwelling on those for the news. This year my feelings about the arts awards have not changed. Nevertheless, it was good to see that the top of the list went to both The Guardian US and The Washington Post for their reporting on the National Security Agency based significantly on data provided by Edward Snowden. It is nice to know that there are still a few our there who remember what journalism is supposed to be doing, not only among those doing the work but also among those handing out the honors.
