It’s official: Despite the disdain many print journalists have of new media, the Pulitzer Prize Board announced today that it has expanded its eligibility requirements to include online journalism.

The Pulitzer Prize Board stressed, according to a press release, that entries should come from U.S. newspapers that publish at least weekly and adhere to the highest journalistic principles.

While I’m momentarily disappointed that my insightful, trainwrecktastic and pithy commentary won’t make the cut for a Pulitzer, this is a huge step for online journalists of every sort.
