In the Pulitzer Prizes the Times and Post Won Big But Smaller Sites Also Showed Their Journalistic Chops

From The Poynter Report with Tom Jones:

On Jan. 6, 2021, protestors — supporters of then-President Donald Trump — stormed the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to stop the certification of Joe Biden as the next president of the United States.

While U.S. lawmakers scrambled and hid for safety, insurrectionists overtook the hallowed halls of the Capitol in an attempt to stop the peaceful transfer of power following a fairly held election.

By evening’s end, the Capitol was cleared and Biden’s election was certified. Democracy held. Jan. 6 was over.

But it was not forgotten.
