YAHOO News has won journalisms most prestigious award for its coverage of cats that resemble celebrities.
Journalist Stephen Malley said: Winning the Pulitzer is every journalists dream, whether youre writing about Watergate or cats that have Miley Cyrus’s head shape.
This prize is for all the cats who made the story possible, especially the one with spiky fur who sort of looks like Johnny Depp, which I dubbed Edward Scissorpaws.
And of course Id like to thank all the loyal Yahoo News readers who idly clicked on the story because it was the most colorful link on a page.”
Malley admitted the success of the cat lookalikes story would be difficult to replicate, but that he was currently working on a story provisionally titled This skydivers parachute got tangled at 12,000 feet! What happened next?
Yahoo News editor-in-chief Donna Sheridan said: This really cements Yahoos position as the go-to news outlet for hard-hitting reportage about cats, great white sharks and big time fashion fails.
If Woodward and Bernstein were still working in investigative journalism, Im sure theyd be leaving no stone unturned in their quest for cats who looked like Richard Nixon.
