As part of its secretive judging process, the Pulitzer Prize committee closely guards the names of outlets and reporters who submit their work for consideration. But a loophole in the Prize’s online submission website inadvertently revealed that BuzzFeed and The Daily Beast sought butdid not win journalism’s highest honor.

password retrieval form on Pulitzer.org currently identifies whether someone has registered an account under a particular username or email address. Most usernames and email addresses, when entered, return a “not recognized” notification. Entering the usernames “buzzfeed,” “thedailybeast,” and “pando,” however, returned messages indicating that “further instructions have been sent to your e-mail address.”

BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith confirmed the finding in an email to Gawker, but refused to identify which stories the website submitted for consideration. The Daily Beast also entered the Pulitzer contest, a Beast staffer familiar with the process said, but under a different username; “thedailybeast” apparently was used in prior submission cycles.

Pando’s editorial director, Paul Carr, said the “pando” username belonged to someone else. “We didn’t nominate anything for a Pulitzer. Maybe there’s a Mr. P Ando working somewhere.”

Both BuzzFeed and The Daily Beast publish aggressive political reporting and frequent dispatches from conflict zones across the globe. Ben Smith told the Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday that BuzzFeed’s content had successfully expanded beyond listicles like “The 33 Most Jizz-Worthy Moments In Ryan Gosling’s 33 Years On Earth” into on-the-ground coverage of Ukraine.

Indeed, BuzzFeed hasn’t exactly concealed its Pulitzer ambitions. The website’s top editors haveaggressively recruited prize-winning reporters to staff its nascent investigations team, headed by Pulitzer winner and former ProPublica editor Mark Schoofs. The site’s latest hire, Chris Hamby,was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting on Monday.

Him: I don’t date black women. It’s just a preference.

Me: Based on what?

Him: Nothing, it’s just how I feel.

Me: Impossible, deliberate aversions come from somewhere.

Him: Its just a preference, that’s all.

Me: No, a preference is preferring broccoli to asparagus. You can say that because asparagus will always taste the same, even when prepared differently.

Him: And?

Me: And we’re not always the same at all. There are hundreds of millions of us and we’re each completely different from the next. If an employer said not hiring Black people was a preference would you agree?

Him: No, but that’s based on stereotypes.

Me: … And what is yours based on, facts?
