LA Times Pulitzer DIY Nominees: Swed, Knight

Medalpu.jpg

Two finalists from the LA Times for the Pulitzer Prize in the critical writing category–art critic Christopher Knight and classical music critic Mark Swednominated themselves. The LAT submitted music critic Ann Powers, architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne, and media writer Tim Rutten but they weren’t selected as finalists.

So, what does this say about the LA Times? That the editors don’t know good writing when they read it? That nominating writers is cheaper than giving them a raise? Or that writers who can afford their own submission fee are paid too much?
