Post columnist Eugene Robinson wins Pulitzer Prize

Washington Business Journal

Eugene Robinson of The Washington Post won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary Monday, but the newspaper's lone award represented a much smaller haul than the six it earned a year ago.

Robinson received journalism's top prize for his columns about the presidential campaign of Barack Obama, the first African-American to win the nation's top job. Robinson, a former foreign correspondent and assistant managing editor for the paper, also is black.

After winning the award, Robinson told colleagues gathered in the Post newsroom that he was particularly pleased to have won for his coverage of "the biggest political event of my lifetime, and one that has personal meaning for me," according to a story on the Post's Web site.

This year's other winners included The New York Times, which won five Pulitzers, including one for breaking news coverage for the prosititution scandal surrounding former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer. The Las Vegas Sun won the public service award, and the Los Angeles Times won for explanatory reporting.

For a distinguished example of investigative reporting by an individual or team, presented as a single article or series, in print or online or both, Ten thousand dollars ($10,000).

Awarded to David Barstow of The New York Times for his tenacious reporting that revealed how some retired generals, working as radio and television analysts, had been co-opted by the Pentagon to make its case for the war in Iraq, and how many of them also had undisclosed ties to companies that benefited from policies they defended.

6. Good for him!
He always has something interesting and insightful to say, and he's a friendly, good-natured guy, not full of himself at all.
