Leonard Pitts’ June 24 column, Every citizen a journalist?, held special poignancy for those of us who have always relied on real newspapers like The Miami Herald to validate facts and discredit fabrications.
Dade Heritage Trust, Miami’s largest nonprofit historic-preservation organization, is featuring a history of The Herald in the next issue of its Preservation Today magazine. The writers, including 19 Pulitzer Prize winners, and the editorial giants who led the paper over the decades have made an indelible mark on our world.
As The Miami Herald prepares to vacate its iconic 1963 landmark building on Biscayne Bay to move to Doral, we hope that the paper, both in print and online, will preserve its outstanding heritage of excellence in writing and community leadership.
