11 newsrooms split 13 Pulitzer Prizes for journalism

No newsroom dominated the 2011 Pulitzer Prizes, with The New York Times and Los Angeles Times taking home two each. The surprise win went to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune for investigative reporting.

The LA Times won the Public Service medal for “Breach of Faith,” as we predicted. ProPublica won National Reporting for their coverage of the financial crisis. (Full list after the jump.)
