Write About the Herald, Get a Pulitzer Prize

by Alphaville Herald on 21/04/09 at 10:00 pm

by Urizenus Sklar, reporting from the Zac Efron party tent at the Pulitzer awards.



The Herald is pleased to report that Jim Schaefer and some of his colleagues at the Detroit Free Press have received a Pulitzer Prize for reporting on the Kwame Kilpatrick affair. What we media insiders know is that while Schaefer *got* the prize for the Patrick story, he *earned* it for his 2004 reportage about the Alphaville Herald.Amy

In this vein, Schaefer follows in the footsteps of New York Times writer Amy Harmon who just last year got a Pulitzer for writing something about DNA, but really truly she earned it with her front page Times story about the Alphaville Herald.

Who will be next? Codec perhaps?

    Never in a million years. Don’t get me wrong, I AM proud of my work. I had to work super hard to get where I am with basically no formal education to speak of. My life has transformed so much over the last year (mostly for the better, except for the AIDS diagnosis) that it is barely recognizable. The physical discomfort that comes with being sick does not even compare to the existential anxiety that I once felt. In the beginning of 2008 I was a security guard searching trucks at the Proctor & Gamble in Augusta, GA. I’ve come quite a ways but I’m not deluding myself thinking that I can compare to the likes of the most talented and famous journalists alive.

    >would you guys please sober up

    I like this comment. It’s incredulous without really being insulting. Too funny.

    First, what does existential mean? Come on dude. You are never going to write for anyone (and not to be blunt – but you need to do this in decent time bro) unless we all get you.

    Second, if you took this article seriously – find a new gig cause witting ain’t for you.

    I admit I took the the first few stories here 100 sober and I didn’t get it, but after about two bottles of Boone’s Farm Peach Flavor — WOW! It’s like the oracle baby. I am so LOL ROTFL OMG.

    And the plug for P&G ? Like they need it? I will never stop needing Head & Shoulders until I eliminate black from my shirt collection and I can’t be alone.

    The only thing better than being sarcastic is watching it soar over someone’s head.
