It looks like one of the tickets to a Pulitzer Prize is having one's work criticized on FutureOfCapitalism. Congratulations to the winners announced yesterday afternoon. They include:
- The health-care editorial writer at the Wall Street Journal, Joseph Rago. There are no bylines on editorials, but the Journal's editorials about health care — apparently not the ones that were part of the Pulitzer entry — were criticized on this site here, here, here, and here.
- A reporter at ProPublica, Jesse Eisinger, who won in part for his article on Magnetar that was criticized in a post here, and whose other work was criticized in a post here.
- An economics columnist at the New York Times, David Leonhardt, whose work was criticized in posts on this site here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.
Bloomberg News was a finalist in the "public service" category for its work "that revealed how some for-profit colleges exploit low-income students, leading to a federal crackdown on a multi-billion-dollar industry." That coverage was criticized on this site, here and here.
