David Maraniss ON Excellence
Project Citizen students

"[L]ook for what is not there...look beyond the conventional wisdom and the oft-repeated stories to try to find the reality behind the myth."

David Maraniss is a nationally recognized journalist and author who has been honored repeatedly for his excellent work. As a Wisconsinite, and the recipient of more than one Pulitzer Prize, we asked him to share his thoughts on the subject of Excellence during our year-long celebration of the anniversary of the Pulitzer Prize.

Maraniss received his first Pulitzer over 20 years ago for his newspaper coverage of then-presidential candidate Bill Clinton. In the years since, many things have changed.

"The platforms for presenting news have changed and will change even more in the next generation, but I think there are two things more important than platforms, and they must not change."
