Pulitzer Finalists

This list of supposed Pulitzer finalists has been circulating around all day, we feel a little exit-pollish about it, but it's written in just the kind of cutline news-speak that we've come to expect from leaked memos. And hey, there's no superscript problems. The big news, we think, is Newsday getting mad props for its "History of Hip Hop," which we think came with free breakdancing lessons. Also awesome: Another reason to make room for Ron Brownstein's ego in the green room, he's up for beat reporting. (Watch out if he wins: His punditry expands to fill space available...) As for the NYT? Well, that railroad crossing story so had Pulitzer-fishing written all over it.
