Washington Post, Guardian Win Pulitzers for NSA Spying Coverage

By Crayton Harrison 2014-04-14T19:12:42Z

The Washington Post and The Guardian won Pulitzer Prizes for public service for their coverage of the surveillance tactics of the U.S. National Security Agency.

The Post, acquired last year by Inc. Chairman Jeff Bezos, also won for explanatory reporting. The New York Times garnered two awards, both for photography.

The 98th annual Pulitzer Prizes for excellence in reporting and the arts were announced today by Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism in New York.

The Boston Globe’s staff got the award for breaking-news reporting for its coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings.

A committee of editors, publishers, writers and educators voted on the winners in 21 categories of journalism, letters, drama and music. Winners in all categories except public service receive a $10,000 cash award. The public-service prize, awarded to a news organization, is a gold medal.

No prize was awarded for feature writing this year.

GOD FORBID THE LIGHTS GO OUT and a zillion brains have to be retrained to function in manual reality.

Does anyone else get the idea that the tweets on the WL account are starting to sound a little like someone is bathing in a bird bath, eating bird food & possibly smoking bird * in his own sphere??
