ProPublica Wins First Digital Only Pulitzer

While all the Pulitzer winners deserve recognition, FishbowlNY wanted to highlight ProPublica.org, which won the first Pulitzer awarded for a series that didn’t originate in print. Read that sentence again, because this is huge news.

As we just mentioned in the last post, ProPublica writers Jake Bernstein and Jesse Eisinger won the Pulitzer for National Reporting  for their look at how some Wall Street banks and hedge funds made the financial crisis worse. The fact that their pieces never appeared in print means that digital only publications are breaking new ground and getting respected like never before.

From all digital pubs to ProPublica, Bernstein and Eisinger – thanks for kicking the door down.
