Pulitzer, the Oscars of Journalism

Joe Strupp from Editor and publisher reports that the Pulitzer Prize jurors will be meeting next week to vote on the winners for 2006 and gives a run-down of potential winning stories. The Herald's Debbie Cenziper is mentioned specifically by Strupp:

At The Miami Herald, reporter Debbie Cenziper has received early acclaim for her series, "House of Lies," about corruption in the Miami-Dade County Housing Agency. Cenziper won a Polk Award for the series, while also being named a finalist for the Shorenstein Award. Again, her entry spans several potential categories, from public service to local reporting to investigative.
Good luck to Ms. Cenziper.

I couldn't help but notice that Oscar Corral's work was not mentioned.

On a related note, Ana Menendez won an ASNE award for her columns "about the Miami community" in which she trashed Cuba Nostalgia, a Cuban-themed indoor art and food festival. Ms. Menendez will receive $2,5oo for her efforts. Herald Watch is sure that she will donate it to Miami's poor.

ASNE award? Are you sure it's not ASNO, as in jackass? That would be rather more fitting.
