The Washington Post won four Pulitzer Prizes today, one more than the archrival New York Times—and four more than the National Enquirer, which entered its coverage of the John Edwards sex scandal. In a breakthrough for online journalism, Sheri Fink of ProPublica won for an investigation of euthanasia at a Katrina-crippled hospital published in the New York Times Magazine.
Among the Post's winners were Kathleen Parker, for a selection of columns that included an excoriation of a woman who tweeted about her miscarriage, and Gene Weingarten, who has now won twice in 3 years for feature writing, the Times notes. Michael Moss, the Times reporter who investigated the health hazards lurking in processed beef, won in the explanatory category. To see the complete list of journalism and arts winners, click here.
