The Pulitzer Prizes were announced this afternoon, overshadowed of course by the Boston Marathon explosions. Many of the usual suspects won, including the New York Times. But the National Reporting award was won by InsideClimateNews.com, a little known Brooklyn based website ranked at around 64,000 on alexa.com. Congrats to the trio of reporters there. The drama prize went to “Disgraced” by Ayad Akhtar, which came from Chicago’s ACT Theater and opened Lincoln Center’s theater season last September.
