The Pulitzer Prize winners were announced today. And guess what? No one from the Bay Area won. Even though local pubs (new and old) entered a bunch of samples -- it's super pricy per entry, around $10,000, which makes the coveted award all the more egregious -- San Francisco and the Bay Area came up empty. Alas. Anyway, the award for Public Service went to the Los Angeles Times for its stories about the city of Bell and the outrageous salaries of its elected officials. The award for Best Online News once again went to ProPublica for their national coverage of Wall Street. Congrats, guys! That's money well spent. Visit for a complete list of winners.
