Pulitzer board to take more time on entries

After getting burned this year, the Pulitzer Prize board is adopting new procedures to strengthen the integrity of one of journalism's most prestigious awards, the New York Times says.

Last spring, a Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post article called ''Jimmy's World,'' supposedly about an eight-year-old drug addict, turned out to be a ''composite'' of a boy that didn't exist.

Under the new procedures, the prize board will take two days instead of one to decide the 20 winners, giving it more time to review the nominations more thoroughly.
