Question of the Day

Yesterday's question of the day asked: Journalism can never be silent: that is its greatest virtue and its greatest fault. It must speak, and speak immediately, while the echoes of wonder, the claims of triumph and the signs of horror are still in the air." Who said it? (And do you agree?) That would be Henry Anatole Grunwald, Austrian-born journalist and diplomat!

Congratulations to Ken Walker at the Tampa Bay Times for being the the first to answer correctly (and for further answering, "I'd say it's never been more true than it is in the Twitter age.")! Honorable mentions also go out to Jeanne Kirk (who agrees with the sentiment of the quote), Edward Tenner (who points out he agrees because "unfortunately because it's so often been fault, not virtue"), Rachel Roh (who answered the second part of our question with "In the age of Internet journalism, no, not completely"), eschuman (who agreed), freelance journalist Amy Zipkin (who answered the secondary part with a "Maybe"),  and freelance journalist Annie M. Dance (who agreed).

In light of yesterday's Pulitzer award announcement, here's today's question: When were the first Pulitzer prizes presented, and what were the original four categories?
