We all have to suffer a bit of the media self-congratulation. But when an author byline contains “Pulitzer Prizewinning Journalist” that usually means we should pay attention. It’s still earned. There are few other indicators of how serious the author is, especially in the new terrain of bloggy digital journalism. Unless of course one is using CivicFeed as a news reader, since we’ll tell you all about the author as you read the story.
Well a quick search of mentions of /pulitzer/ results in this (and I mean quick — it takes more time to type “quick” than to use the API, in part because q is located where it is, though z is not party to pinky).
It’s a bit surprising to see /pulitzer/ fairly strongly mentioned, varied, and frequented in the left-biased media. One can draw one’s own conclusions there.
At CivicFeed, we can function as a COLUMBIA JOURNALISM REVIEW on steroids. Which we take great pride in. Sadly, Mr. Pulitzer’s great contribution to journalism is not mentioned here. Neither is his paper, ST LOUIS POST DISPATCH. Language, reference, connotation, and correlation move on. In philosophy of language, it’s called “incommensurability” and it’s why brand monitor and p.r. people need to stay on top of linguistic micro-cultures. Does anyone still say “on steroids” by the way? Well, perhaps I should say CivicFeed can function as COLUMBIA JOURNALISM REVIEW on AI.
Just for comparison, here’s how Nobel is doing:
