Michael Ramirez Wins Pulitzer Prize


From the Pulitzer Prize website

Conservative Open-minded cartoonist Michael Ramirez, editorial cartoonist with Los Angeles based Investors Business Daily has won a 2008 Pulitzer Prize (via MM).

Ramirez, 46, joined IBD in early 2006 — soon after being forced out of the Los Angeles Times. When asked if winning the Pulitzer was especially satisfying after that experience, he took the high road.

“I’m very grateful for the time I spent at the Times,” Ramirez said. “There were some wonderful people there. They gave me a great deal of creative freedom, and were very supportive until the last one-and-a-half years. I’m sad I wasn’t able to win a Pulitzer for them.”

But Ramirez said he’s thrilled to win for his current paper. “It’s fantastic to bring one home for IBD,” he said.

Ramirez previously won the Pulitzer in 1994 for The Commercial Appeal of Memphis, for which he worked from 1990 until joining the Times in 1997.

Cartoons in Ramirez’s Pulitzer portfolio this year included ones that commented on the vagueness of some of Barack Obama’s stands, on the troubled U.S. economy, on the use of corn to make ethanol rather than as food, and on other topics. Ramirez is considered a conservative cartoonist, but said he tries to approach every issue with an open mind. Sometimes, he noted, conservatives criticize his work.

Congrats Michael!
