The Enquirer doesn't make up enough stuff to qualify to qualify as a news organization worthy of receiving the Pulitzer Prize.
Very funny....and appropos.....
Agreed! Right now the Enquirer is far more legitimate than its high-brow conterparts. They will alway “look down” on papers that are not in lock-step. Obama got the “peace Prize” the very same way (they only vote for “like minded” recipients.)
Is silky pony holding a baby Dick Cheney in that picture?
LOLOLOL I kinda find funny and kinda sad of today journalism hey I got word for Pultizer I think they are bunch of clowns
Sounds like “Men in Black” was prescient.
I’d believe the Enquirer way, way before believing the NYT.
Have any of their reporters actually taken any REAL college courses in their lives?
Enquirer does the job that the “respectable” main stream media should have done, and gets snubbed by the Pulitzer Prize organization for even aspiring to a prize. (And given the LAME EXCUSE OF THE WEEK for why it isn’t “qualified” for nomination.) What a bunch of hypocritical arrogant elitists. The Pulitzer organization has obviously completely forgotten its raison d’etre, and has degenerated to a bunch of journalist apes picking at each other’s fleas. But the Enquirer gets the last laugh. It is making money and isn’t laying off “journalists.”
Could they at least get a Nobel?
Of course they’re ineligible for the Putlizer - Edwards has a D after his name....
It’s weird. The Enquirer is pretty sleazy, but they broke the Rush Limbaugh painkiller story, said last January that Michael Jackson had “six months to live”, and were the first to say Tiger Woods had been cheating. And of course, the Edwards story.
In all fairness, the Enquirer didn’t actually find out things the other organizations didn’t already know, with both Edwards and Tiger Woods, it was an open secret; the other newspapers simply decided to spike the story.
The Enquirer is lurid — their staff make no pretense that it is otherwise — but unlike most of the other tabloids, it does not make stories up.
Indeed a case can be made that The Enquirer is more truthful than is The Washington Post, New York Times and the rest of the leftist print cabal.
Let us remember also that The Enquirer broke the story that O.J. was abusing his wife long before the murders took place. The MSM simply was not interested in exploring the story until blood was spilled.
The Enquirer has its place in the journalistic world and should be recognized as such when it gets a story right.
Their excuse is that the National Enquirer calls itself a “magazine” on its web site, and magazines aren’t eligible for the prize.
Curious. I just googled for National Enquirer, and the top entry google shows is “National Enquirer Magazine.”
But when I click on it and go there, the word “magazine” appears nowhere on that web page. Nowhere. Is this some sort of typical google trick, in collusion with the prize committee, or did they change their web page? To tell the truth, I never particularly noticed.
But I don’t think most people think of it as a magazine. Nor does it look like one.
