David Hasemyer, who was laid off by the Union-Tribune in one of its several pogroms, is one of three reporters winning the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for national reporting, according to an announcement today (April 15). The other reporters are Elizabeth McGowan and Lisa Song. The three won the prize for "The Dilbit Disaster: Inside the Biggest Oil Spill You've Never Heard Of." It was an investigation into a spill of Canadian tar sands oil. The series broadened into pipeline safety issues. It was published by "Inside Climate News," a publication covering clean, carbon and nuclear energy, and environmental issues. According to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Inside Climate is based in Brooklyn. The editor of the prize-winning piece was San Diegan Susan White, who took a buyout at the Union-Tribune. White had been one of the editors of the Pulitzer-winning U-T expose of Randy "Duke" Cunningham, and also one of the editors of another Pulitzer winner by Pro Publica. Thanks to Matt Potter for alerting me to this story.
