Pulitzer-prize winning NewsTunes now available via i-phone

When political cartoonist Mark Fiore originally approached Apple with a pitch to have his cartoon strip NewsTunes available as an app. for the i-phone, the company turned him down, saying their policy was not to use apps that made fun of public figures.
Months later, Fiore won the Pulitzer Prize, and now i-phone owners can download his work.
From PC World:
"'It feels a little weird, it feels almost dirty, like I got preferential treatment because of the Pulitzer and because of press hubbub because of the app' Fiore told the SF Gate."
