For those who are impressed by Jose Antonio Vargas Pulitzer Prize, read the citation more carefully.
"For a distinguished example of local reporting of breaking news, presented in print or online or both, Ten thousand dollars ($10,000).
Awarded to The Washington Post Staff for its exceptional, multi-faceted coverage of the deadly shooting rampage at Virginia Tech, telling the developing story in print and online."
The Washington Post describes the winning team as:
Eleven bylined reporters and 50 other journalists, more than half on The Postís Metro staff, and staff members of the paperís Web site contributed to the coverage of the mass slayings at Virginia Tech that won the Pulitzer for breaking news.
Jose Antonio Vargas was one of the 11 bylined reporters. He had a sole byline on one article and a co-byline with Michael E. Ruane on another article. Both of his articles are available via the Pulitzer link above. Since Jose Antonio Vargas would have been about 26 years old at the time these articles were written, he most likely was not a leading force on the Washington Post Staff that won this Pulitzer Prize
