ProPublica wins Pulitzer Prize

This is a huge victory for new media, meaning online -only publications. I am  proud to say I have linked to them for quite some time, and Sirens Chronicles has proudly displayed their logo, with a link to their site, on the front page for over a year now. They do heavy-duty investigative reporting…like the corporate media used to do. From the HuffPo link:

ProPublica, a 2-year-old organization, is bankrolled by charitable foundations, staffed by distinguished veteran journalists, and devoted to doing the kind of big investigative journalism projects many newspapers have found too expensive.

The Pulitzers opened its doors wider in recent years to online-only material. The changes reflect the seismic shifts going on in the industry in the past decade, with readers getting their news online at all hours, in a never-ending news cycle.

Pulitzer administrator Sig Gissler said there about 100 online entries from 50 sites this year, up from 65 entries last year.

If you are not familiar with ProPublica..I would like to suggest you check them out.
