Pulitzers to Recognize Original Online Reporting
Source: TV Newser

Just in time for the demise of print (or maybe in recognition of it) the blogosphere has finally been made official! At least in the eyes of the Pulitzer Prize board, and really, (unless you are Sam Zell) does it get more official than that? Ha. According to the press release the Prizes "have been expanded to include many text-based newspapers and news organizations that publish only on the Internet."...

There's also this:

"The Board also has decided to allow entries made up entirely of online content to be submitted in all 14 Pulitzer journalism categories...While broadening the competition, the Board stressed that all entered material whether online or in print should come from United States newspapers or news organizations that publish at least weekly, that are 'primarily dedicated to original news reporting and coverage of ongoing stories,' and that 'adhere to the highest journalistic principles.'"...

6. She just lost her mother....:(... But she is
as fine a writer and commentator that people from
the Washington Post and New York times used to get
awards for.

I don't give that accolade out easily.

7. I just saw that sad news, after I posted the above, and added my condolences to the thread.
Thanks for noting the news here. And you're spot on about Nance's great talent as a writer/commentator.

8. Yippeee!! I'm editing an online news pub now, and will be sure to enter.
This is great news. Last year I wrote a couple of the best investigative pieces of my career, racked up all sorts of other journalism prizes, but wasn't eligible to enter the Pulitzer just because the stories were online.
