Guild Members Shine as Winners of 2014 Pulitzers(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)

More than half of the Pulitzer Prizes awarded this year went to journalists in TNG-CWA-represented newsrooms, including at The Washington Post. "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." The TNG-CWA-represented Washington Post newsroom shares the Public Service award with The Guardian for "its revelation of widespread secret surveillance by the National Security Agency, marked by authoritative and insightful reports that helped the public understand how the disclosures fit into the larger framework of national security." Eli Saslow (left) of The Washington Post wins the Explanatory Reporting award for "his unsettling and nuanced reporting on the prevalence of food stamps in post-recession America, forcing readers to grapple with issues of poverty and dependency."
