Globe reporter wins Pulitzer
The 2007 Pulitzer Prizes were announced this afternoon. Cormac McCarthy won for "The Road," which James Parker wrote about for Ideas. And I'm pleased to report that the Globe's Charlie Savage won the prize for "a distinguished example of reporting on national affairs." From the Pulitzer announcement:
Awarded to Charlie Savage of The Boston Globe for his revelations that President Bush often used "signing statements" to assert his controversial right to bypass provisions of new laws.
One of Savage's stories on this topic, "Hail to the Chief," appeared in the Ideas section, on Nov. 26.
PPS: Rumors that the Globe's Alex Beam won a 1991 Nobel Prize for literature are false, and can be traced to a fine column in today's paper.
