(Undated) -- The Pulitzer Prize winners for 2014 will be announced in New York City this afternoon. One person who won't get an award could cast a long shadow over this year's honors. The "Washington Post" and "The Guardian" of Britain could be recognized for their coverage of the revelations of former National Security Agency analyst Edward Snowden. The newspapers broke the story of the NSA's electronic and government surveillance programs, based on stolen top secret documents they received from Snowden. The Obama administration and many members of Congress want Snowden returned to the U.S. to stand trial. He's currently in Russia, where he's been granted asylum.
