The Pulitzer Prizes are about to commemorate their 100th anniversary with a celebration at Poynter.
In honor of the occasion, we're taking a look at exemplary social justice-focused journalism from last
year and throughout the century.
Steve Myers was the managing editor of Poynter.org until August 2012, when he became the deputy managing editor and senior staff writer for The Lens, a nonprofit investigative news site in New Orleans.
Before working at Poynter Online, Steve spent about six years in Mobile, Ala., as a reporter for the Press-Register, focusing on local government accountability. He was a 2006 Ohio State University Kiplinger Fellow and an Open Society Institute Katrina Media Fellow.
