TOM LIPSCOMB nominated for Pulitzer for his reporting on John Kerry
phone conversation with Lipscomb | 3-9-05 | dfu

Posted on 03/09/2005 12:44:30 PM PST by doug from upland

I spoke with Tom Lipscomb a short time ago. Tom did great reporting for the New York Sun about John Kerry's phony war record and the plot in Kansas City.

He has been nominated for a Pulitzer for his reporting, but is not hold his breath. He knows they will never award it to him because of the subject of the reports.

Tom is named in a song on the new parody CD, YOU'BE BEEN FREEPED, Vol. 1. We did a version of BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS by Johnny Horton that became the BATTLE OF KANSAS CITY.

Our kudos to Tom for great investigative reporting about John Kerry. It is likely that he helped make a difference in the campaign, although he would say that's not his job. He just did honest reporting. It was up to others to do what they wished with the reports and information. Honest journalism, not advocacy.

From last August ---

MIDI - BENNY AND THE JETS

Voters, come and pay attention
The "T" word he hopes you'll never mention
Traitors are men who stab comrades in the back

He told lies to Congress...for friends, didn't give a damn

Now his sordid past has caught up with him
Men get ready for war
The battle will be Kerry and the Vets
They faced bullets...now they face his band of legal whores

Despite the mainstream press, he's in a mess
This time the truth will surely preva-a-ail
This fight's Kerry and Vets

He built his whole reputation...based on lies
He fooled some of this nation
Traitors are men who stab comrades in the back

He told lies to Congress...for friends, didn't give a damn

Now his sordid past has caught up with him
Men get ready for war
The battle will be Kerry and the Vets
They faced bullets...now they face his band of legal whores

Despite the mainstream press, he's in a mess
This time the truth guys will surely preva-a-ail
This fight's Kerry and Vets

(musical break)

Kerry...Kerry and the Vets
Kerry...Kerry....lying John Forbes Kerry and the Vets
Kerry...Kerry....lying John Forbes Kerry...Kerry and a group of tough Vets

Tom Lipscomb did some tremendous reporting last year. I haven't been able to find all his articles listed in one place, but this is a start...

Thanks for the ping.

I am surprised, because I thought truth-tellers were automatically excluded from nomination for the Pulitzer Prize.

TOM LIPSCOMB nominated for Pulitzer for his reporting on John Kerry!

Now can anyone name 1 so called MAIN Stream Right Wing Media personality

(we know Russert on tv and Imus on radio from the Left have)

that has asked,

in 2005,

these questions?

"Asked Kerry when he will sign Form 180.

(Even though President Bush signed his Form 180)

Or how could Kerry have a top secret clearance,
and access to US intelligence
WITHOUT revealing ALL his military records to the US Senate

Who in the US Senate has seen ALL of Kerry's military records?

Who, in the US Senate, gave him his top secret clearance?

Or why Kerry is still in the US Senate.
This is in violation of
U.S. Constitution Amendment 14 Sec 3
http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/constitution.amendmentxiv.html

Or when Kerry will set the record straight
on his false testimony in April 71"

Good reporter.

Congrats to him. As they say in Hollywood, he should be happy just to be nominated! Even if he's got a snowball's chance to get it because of the subject matter, he'll always be able to be described as a "Pulitzer Prize nominated journalist".

anyone else nominated from the US?

because Claudia Rosett, of the Wall Street Journal, I believe, should also be nominated, she is the one that broke the story stateside and wouldn't leave the Oil for Food scam alone, she wrote on it practically every day, I'm surprised Koffi didn't have a contract out on her......she deserves a Pulitzer too......

They are, but evidently some flaws exist in the screening process.

When I was a child, I thought that a Pulitzer was a great thing.

When I became a man, I put away childish notions!

A Pulitzer is not at all what they would pretend to have it be.

Correct! It is a celebration of left wing liberals.

"Or when Kerry will set the record straight on his false testimony in April 71"

While it is true that his testimony in '71 was grossly false, hasn't the fact that he has perpetuated for 35 years the whole VN myth make it current and not necessarily only about '71??

The Pulitzer has been Phewlitzer for a long time, taken over by the leftists just like the Nobel was corrupted by the same type of infiltrators.

However, if a conservative journalist/freeper has been nominated for the Pulitzer, I consider this a breakthrough, with more honors to come to others in the future.

Sooner or later, hopefully, these formerly laudable prizes will again become un-corrupted if conservatives remain on the offensive with creativity and activism. As Dylan sang, "The times they are a-changing."

(.....not the New York Times, of course......)

Anyone know how to nominate for a Pulitzer and who is eligible to nominate?

June Maxam of theEmpireJournal.com, NY is doing the
best investigative journalism on Terri Schiavo's
plight ever done. If/when Terri's life is spared (LORD willing) June will have been a major part of unravelling the incredible corruption in Florida state government.

Great point. And now he and Teddy K. are trying to do the same with this war and its warriors, but hiding behind some false sense of "feeling their pain."

In reality, to Kerry our soldiers fall under three categories: 1. Victims 2. fools 3. enemies (if they oppose him in any way).

I wonder how many times he flipped his manicured finger at Vietnam Vets this last year?

Dorothy Rabinowitz, in the Wall Street Journal, for her columns on all the phony "pre-school molestation" travesties. She is responsible for exposing the 80s hysteria over child abuse and "recovered memories" that jailed hundreds of innocent people around the country

She won, too.

Great news that Tom Lipscomb has been nominated.

He is most deserving for his excellent investigative reporting.
Wish we had more journalists like him.
