Guild Members Shine as Winners of 2014 Pulitzer Prizes

Once again, more than half of the Pulitzer Prizes announced today went to journalists in Newspaper Guild-represented newsrooms, with both individual members and Guild-represented staffs named as top winners and finalists. "We take enormous pride in the fact that Guild members and the news organizations they work for represent the very best of American journalism," TNG-CWA President Bernie Lunzer said. "The Pulitzers, like the Guild's coveted Heywood Broun award, illustrate how and why quality journalism is essential to our democracy. You don't get an informed citizenry by recycling news releases online. And that's what fills a lot of space when newsrooms are cut to the bone. The Guild is committed to the fight to preserve -- and restore -- good jobs for dedicated journalists like today's winners."
