Papers In Eye Of Katrina Win Pulitzers

The New Orleans Times-Picayune and Biloxi Sun Herald win prizes for public service in their coverage of the hurricane aftermath.

"Two US newspapers from the region hit by Hurricane Katrina have both won Pulitzer journalism prizes for their coverage of the disaster.

The Times-Picayune of New Orleans and Sun Herald of Biloxi, Mississippi share the prestigious public service award."

"Both the New Orleans and Biloxi newspapers were praised for the depth of their reporting of Katrina which was conducted in the face of severe logistical problems.

The Pulitzer Committee particularly praised the Times-Picayune for its 'heroic, multi-faceted coverage' which carried on even though the paper's print works had to be abandoned due to the flood waters."
