2005 Pulitzer Prize Winners
The Los Angeles Times and the Wall Street Journal led the year with two awards apiece, while the Washington Post was shut out. The New York Times received just one. For the complete list, see the Pulitzer Prize site.
Since 2000, the LA Times has won 15 awards, the most among these four major papers. It’s gotten at least one award each year. The NY Times, which comes in second with 12, has received just one award in each of the past three years. Indeed, without its dominating 2002 performance, in which it won seven, it’d be badly trailing its peers. As for the Post, this year marks the second time in the past five years that it’s been left empty-handed. The Journal has been a model of consistency: two awards in 2000, 2001, 2004, and 2005.
