Pulitzer Prize Renews Spotlight On Domestic Violence In SC
The Post and Courier of Charleston is the winner of this year's Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. The newspaper last year published a seven-part series titled "Till Death Do Us Part" which highlighted the problem of domestic violence in South Carolina. The series explored cultural and legal factors that contributed to the state having the highest rate of domestic violence deaths in the nation last year. WFAE's Mark Rumsey talked with Post and Courier reporter Doug Pardue, who helped research and write last year's series.
