Pro Publica didn’t break the Magnetar story-Yves Smith did, in ‘Econned’. You know this, so why don’t you acknowledge it?

A few observations and, dare I say, additions:

1. The Pulitzers are, in addition to being about awarding Big Important Works, about as political as awards get.
2. Let’s not celebrate the Pulitzers for not distinguishing between old/new media, as this is the same august body that wouldn’t even let a newswire/online outlet enter an award until very recently. It was 1957 at Columbia until very recently.
3. At least one of the awarded entries this year was replete with the kind of hoary chestnut anecdotal lede/approach that suggests it was written for the Board, not the reader.
