Pulitzer Prize

Glenn Greenwald on The Boston Globe's Charlie Savage getting the Pulitzer Prize for his series on Bush's efforts to expand presidential power:

Previously, reporting on "what the government does, not just what it says" was the basic function of political journalism. But these days, journalists who actually do that are so rare -- they stand out so conspicuously -- that they win Pulitzer Prizes for it.

I'm glad there's still someone who understands his own job description, but it's sad that it merits a prestigious award.
