It’s not quite the shakeup we saw in 2012, when the Huffington Post and Politico became the first digital news operations to take home the journalism’s highest honor, but 2013 saw another newcomer to the Pulitzer Prize circles.
InsideClimate News — a non-profit, Brooklyn-based site devoted to environmental reporting — won the Pulitzer for National Reporting, beating out the Boston Globe and the Washington Post. Reporters Lisa Song, Elizabeth McGowan and David Hasemyer won for “their rigorous reports on flawed regulation of the nation’s oil pipelines, focusing on potential ecological dangers posed by diluted bitumen (or “dilbit”), a controversial form of oil.”
The New York Times took home four Pulitzers — for investigative reporting, international reporting, exemplary reporting and feature writing.
