The Times-Picayune has 602,744 in daily readers and is the 34 th largest American Newspaper
It began publishing in 1837 as the Picayune, named after the Spanish coin equivalent to 6 1/4 cents (1/16 dollar) - which was the price of the paper. It became the Times-Picayune after merging with its rival paper in 1914. (http://www.mondonewspapers.com/newspaper/new-orleans-times-picayune.html)
Do you think that this type of journalism warrants a Pulitzer Prize? Why or why not?
By publishing their blog, they were able to reach their displaced readership, who were all over the country. Do you think that they should have returned to paper copies of the newspaper? Are paper copies necessary anymore?
