In a historic first, online journalism sites have been awarded Pulitzer prizes.
Two online journalism sites have won the prestigious Pulitzer Prize award in separate categories, marking it the first time an online journalism service has been awarded by the Pulitzer Prize Board. ProPublica, which teamed up with The New York Times Magazine, won the Pulitzer for investigative reporting about controversial deaths at a New Orleans medical center following Hurricane Katrina. Another online journalism site, Sfgate won the Pulitzer in the editorial cartooning category.
