HuffPo not the first blog to win a Pulitzer

Letter to Romenesko

From ANONYMOUS: I prefer not to be mentioned as a source on this, and it’s not necessary because it’s public information. This week I saw reports that the Pulitzer awarded to The Huffington Post was the first awarded to a blog. However, the Pulitzer-winning entry for The Times-Picayune’s coverage of Hurricane Katrina way back on 2005/6 cited the newspaper’s “news blog” on NOLA.com as part of the submission. So wasn’t that really the first Pulitzer-winning blog?

    Say what you want about the Huffington Post, but it’s not a blog. That word is not synonymous with website.
