They added: "It hardly requires genius to understand that Mr. Barstow's intent was to damage the credibility and reputation of the Bush Administration, our Military and that his publicly discredited attempts to undercut our Nation's bravest accomplishes little more than turning the Prize, his newspaper and his reputation into a laughing stock."

Larry Di Rita, a former Rumsfeld aide who helped set up the program, told Inside the Ring, "It seems to violate the Pulitzer committee's time-honored tradition of awarding the prize before the story is later debunked. This time they at least waited for the debunking to happen first. I look at it as just another laughable reminder that the establishment media are awarding themselves ever more grandiose awards in direct proportion to their increasing irrelevance and desperation."

Every award [Pulitzer, Nobel Peace Prize, Oscar] has become Orwellian. None of these prizes are worth a bucket of spit now.
