They can win prizes ... but it won't make their subscriptions go up

Why .. because people are sick of the lies that are printed

Here's another one from the Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters of the T-P:

"In St. Bernard, 22 bodies were found lashed together. Officials surmised the drowning victims had tried to stay together to keep themselves from being washed away in the storm."

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article10167.htm

Never mind that this too was completely untrue:

"Immediately after the hurricane a story was widely published quoting St. Bernard Parish Sheriff Jack Stevens, who said 22 people had been found dead near Violet, La., lashed together by a single rope. In November a Knight Ridder reporter established that the claim was completely untrue."

I never saw the Times-Picayune retract this lie either.

Instead it got plastered all over the media. Most people probably believe it was true.
