We previously blogged about the growth of nonprofit news organizations. Now a reporter with one of those entities has won a Pulitzer Prize. Sheri Fink, of ProPublica, "an independent non-profit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest," won the investigative reporting prizefor the story published in the New York Times Magazine chronicling what happened at a hospital that was cut off by the Hurricane Katrina floodwaters. For press coverage, see the L.A. Times.
