Awards: 2010 Pulitzers
Congratulations to the 2010 Pulitzer Prize winners and finalists, who have just been announced. Special congrats to Sara Jean Green, a good friend and former Montrealer now at The Seattle Times, who picked up the award for Breaking News Reporting along with other Times staffers. Read their coverage of the shooting deaths of four local police officers and the 40-hour manhunt for the suspect here.
The Investigative Reporting category had two winners: Sheri Fink of ProPublica, who in this item in collaboration with The New York Times Magazine investigated how doctors and nurses dealt with dying patients in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, and Barbara Laker and Wendy Ruderman of the Philadelphia Daily News, who in this series exposed a rogue police narcotics squad, resulting in an FBI probe and the review of hundreds of criminal cases.
