Oprah’s Book Club selection, The Road by Cormac McCarthy, won the Fiction prize. The Wall Street Journal won for its investigation of corporate backdating of stock options. Interestingly, the “Breaking News Reporting” was awarded to the Staff of The Oregonian for its reporting of the family missing in the Oregon mountains, both in print on and online. All of the Pulitzer journalism prizes recognize online media, in addition to print media, as worthy of recognition.
