The Las Vegas Sun on Monday won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, journalism's most prestigious award, for its investigation of construction deaths on the Las Vegas Strip and the failures of government, management and labor unions to protect workers. Judges singled out Sun staff writer Alexandra Berzon for "courageous reporting" in persevering against closed doors and intimidation.
