Times-Picayune weblog Pulitzer update: When I made the statement that the Times-Picayune Breaking news weblog deserves a Pulitzer, I really meant it, but didn’t think it was possible. Jeff Jarvis has used his mighty blog and now, his Media Guardian column to second my nomination. And now, Mark Glaser at OJR, has checked in with the Pulitzer folks to see if it’s possible. And apparently, it is, if the Pulitzer Board wants to make one-time exceptions to the rule. Mark observes, “If ever there was a case for an exception to the rules, this would be it.”
Mark’s story also provides some great background on the work of the NOLA.com efforts, which continue to be extraordinary.
