Sun Sentinel Wins Public Service Pulitzer for Parkland Shooting Coverage.

Source: NYTimes

The Sun Sentinel of South Florida won the Pulitzer Prize for public service on Monday for its coverage of the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., a tragedy that unfolded just miles from the paper's newsroom.
Reporters spent months documenting the shooting and its aftermath in their community and its affect on the national debate over gun rights. In a harrowing reconstruction, The Sun Sentinel revealed a series of failures by local officials and law enforcement that, the paper wrote, cost children their lives.
This is the second time that The Sun Sentinel has received the public service award, considered the most prestigious of the Pulitzers. The paper, based in Deerfield Beach, Fla., north of Fort Lauderdale, won the category in 2013 for its investigation of the speeding habits of local police officers, who were later disciplined.

3. I worked for the Sun-Sentinel

as a reporter back in the '80s, when our offices were on the New River in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Good for them, despite having survived the Tribune Company's rapacious emptying out of the newsroom and a move to the north Broward 'burbs.

5. That's wonderful.

In a nation where the administration ignores the horrific mass murder, it's a good thing for organizations and the world to continue to recognize the standouts, as well as the ordinary citizens, who reported on or were affected by the incident.
