MADISON (AP) - The Wisconsin State Journal is a Pulitzer Prize finalist for its coverage of state Capitol protests over collective bargaining rights.
The staff of the Madison newspaper was cited in breaking news reporting for its energetic coverage of 27 days of around-the-clock protests over Gov. Scott Walker's proposal that effectively ended bargaining rights for most public employees. The State Journal also was cited for using an array of journalistic tools to capture one breaking development after another.
The Tuscaloosa (Ala.) News staff won the breaking news Pulitzer for its coverage of a deadly tornado.
The other finalist was the staff of The Arizona Republic for its coverage of the mass shooting that wounded Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and killed six people.
