Just for journalists
As we all anticipated, the whole topic of Edward Snowden is looming over this year's Pulitzer Prizes. Should the committee "honor reporting by The Washington Post and The Guardian based on stolen government documents that are arguably detrimental to the national security of the United States, and which were provided by a man who many see as a traitor?" Politico's Dylan Byers wonders in that piece. Or does it ignore the story, and play it safe? Huffington Post's Michael Calderone predicted, "Expect Pulitzers to honor NSA reporting, but lots of questions: Who wins? Shared prize? Public Service award?" NYT's David Joachim seemed in agreement, suspecting there will be "No issue, I don't think. It's the Pentagon Papers of our time." Reuters columnist Jack Shafer's response was the least enthusiastic, in reply to a retweet of the article by WaPo's Erik Wemple: "It's a shit prize, Erik."
And here's a riot of a read in the form of an interview with Sarah Jessica Parker, beautiful executed by Stuart Heritage for The Guardian. The interview actually closes with Parker begging Heritage for more interviews: "I want more time with you. I want to start each day with you," she says at the end. "This, by @stuheritage is how to do a celebrity Q&A. Brilliant," Daily Mail's Alice-Azania Jarvis concluded. We have to agree.
