Pulitzers to include online news organizations

This pretty much speaks for itself and can be filed under the "it's about time" category:

Prizes broadened to include online-only publications primarily devoted to original news reporting

The Pulitzer Prizes in journalism have been expanded to include many text-based newspapers and news organizations that publish only on the Internet.

The Pulitzer Board also has decided to allow entries made up entirely of online content to be submitted in all 14 Pulitzer journalism categories.

Update: Seth Goden has a good take on this. Essentially, there's not much of a change going on.
