LA Gets Snubbed by the Pulitzers

pulitzer.pngWe usually crack jokes about how we know someone who once went to school briefly with someone who used to work for someone who won a Pulitzer in whatever year. This year, it’s not funny. This year LAT’s Ralph Vartabedian and Ken Bensinger were finalists for breaking the Toyota story so early that Toyota released the hounds on their reputations as Camrys were still killing people.

It resulted in one of the largest recalls in automotive history and saved an untold number of lives.

Yeah, the Enquirer didn’t win a prize for figuring out John Edwards couldn’t control himself – but the major metro newspaper reporters who figured out Priuses couldn’t either?! Nothing?! Really?!

List of the winners is here.
