[Keyword: online journalism]. "The New Orleans Times-Picayune won the 2006 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news reporting today for its coverage of Hurricane Katrina and the resulting flooding of the city," reports the OJR. "What makes this award so significant for online journalism is the fact that the Times-Picayune published its award-winning coverage only online for the first three days after the storm. This makes the Times-Picayune's award the Pulitzer ever given to online-original news content."
