'Newsday' Pulitzers Pilfered and Sold on eBay
DEBORAH AMOS, host:
Now consider this economic mystery. Our last word in business today is the pilfered Pulitzers. It's a story that starts with a tip to Newsday, a New York newspaper. The paper's own Pulitzers for public service were listed on eBay last week. The three gold medals sold at a California auction for more than $15,000. Newsday staffers thought the awards were safely locked away. No one knows how they ended up for sale on the other side of the country. However it ends, let's hope Newsday gets the scoop.
