Another entry from the “Kicking the L.A. Times While They’re Down Department”:
Bad news for the L.A. Times: the Pulitzer Prize committee is now allowing submissions for online-only content:
The Pulitzer Prizes in journalism, which honor the work of American newspapers appearing in print, have been expanded to include many text-based newspapers and news organizations that publish only on the Internet, the Pulitzer Prize Board announced today.
The Board also has decided to allow entries made up entirely of online content to be submitted in all 14 Pulitzer journalism categories.
Woo-hoo! Patterico is in!
The news gets worse for The Times. Pay special attention to the bolded language:
While broadening the competition, the Board stressed that all entered material — whether online or in print — should come from “United States newspapers or news organizations that publish at least weekly, that are primarily dedicated to original news reporting and coverage of ongoing stories, and that adhere to the highest journalistic principles.”
Ouch. The L.A. Times is out!
