Among the winners were The Los Angeles Times, which was awarded with two Pulitzers for public service and feature photography, with the international reporting prize going to The New York Times, editorial writing to The Wall Street Journal, breaking news photography to The Washington Post and criticism to The Boston Globe.
The public service award was the result of the Los Angeles Times’ investigation into high salaries in Bell, Calif., which cost several city officials their jobs. The New York Times’ award was a nod to its coverage of Russia during the year. The Post’s award in the photography category came as a result of three of its photographers’ coverage of the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake in January 2010.
