Pulitzer for PolitiFact
 / 

My usual take on the Pulitzer Prizes are that they’re cool and deserved, but in no way useful as a guide for where news ought to go. I’m going to have to modulate that a bit; this year’s winner for National Reporting is the St. Pete Times site PolitiFact.

So, to be clear: The 2009 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting went not to a story, but to a reported database presented as a user-friendly website. I actually think one of the tectonic plates that make up journalism’s history and culture just shifted a little. Rumblerumblerumble. Very cool.

But you still need to be an organization that prints a daily edition on newsprint to qualify for the prize, even if the prize-winning object didntn’t get sent out in newsprint format? The prizes may need to be reorganized very soon.
