Washington Post earns six Pulitzers

Reported by Chrish - April 7, 2008 -

Oh dear. Bill O'Reilly's latest target, the Washington Post, has really gone and done it now. Those smear merchants have bamboozled the Pulitzer Committee into giving them six - yes, six - Pulitzer Prizes, including the prestigious Public Service award for reporting on conditions at the Walter Reed military hospital.

Other awards garnered by the newspaper are

Breaking News Reporting: The Washington Post staff

National Reporting: Jo Becker and Barton Gellman of The Washington Post

International Reporting: Steve Fainaru of The Washington Post

Feature Writing: Gene Weingarten of The Washington Post

Commentary: Steven Pearlstein of The Washington Post

The New York Times also picked up a few more for their mantle,

Investigative Reporting: Walt Bogdanich and Jake Hooker of The New York Times and The Chicago Tribune Staff

Explanatory Reporting: Amy Harmon of The New York Times

He'll be in high dudgeon tonight! At least he has his Peabody to console him. Oh wait.

Congrats to all the writers, reporters, and journalists.
