The Miami Herald’s Pulitzer
April 16, 2007, 10:59 pm
Filed under: hyperlocal, investigative, newspapers, online

First, it’s online: House of Lies (WARNING: It is NOISY!).

Second, the Herald has posted a nice brief about the winning story, “which revealed developers took millions of dollars in taxpayer money to build affordable housing for the poor, but failed to deliver, leaving thousands without their promised homes.”

Third, Debbie Cenziper, the reporter, was editor of The Independent Florida Alligator in 1991. She was also a finalist for the Pulitzer last year in the Explanatory Reporting category, for reporting about breakdowns in hurricane forecasting.

Go Gators! (We are pretty good at winning competitions.)

“Other Herald staff members involved in the project included Larry Lebowitz, Susannah A. Nesmith, Tim Henderson, Monika Z. Leal, Chuck Fadely and Shawn Greene [Web design]. The series was edited by Investigations Editor Michael Sallah” (source).

Update (April 19): Cenziper is leaving the Herald to work at The Washington Post.
