Jeffrey Gettleman of The Times was cited for his coverage of famine and conflict in East Africa. Mr. Gettleman nominated himself for the award, and he beat out other Times reporters nominated for their coverage of the Japanese tsunami. While “some reporters might have felt his editors knew best” about the nomination, said Joseph Kahn, The Times’s foreign editor, “Jeffrey put himself forward for the Pulitzers — and for that, Jeffrey, bless your heart.”
