The article, written by two members of the editorial board of the "The New York Daily News" newspaper in New York City, focuses on the creation of a series of editorials on the health and safety of police, fire fighters, and other workers at the site of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack at the former World Trade Center. The editorials were awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 2007. The newspaper's editorial writing staff, which is separate from the news reporting staff, did much of its own investigative reporting in producing the series. The authors state that since the Internet has become such a huge source of pure opinion, the combination of reporting and opinion will likely become the norm for newspaper editorials.
