    The whole issue of Walter Duranty's Pulitzer Prize in 1932 has always pissed me off. It just rankles that he got away with it, so the least we can do is blacken the bastard's name posthumously for the sake of the millions of dead Ukrainians he lied about. Now that Harold Pinter has won a Nobel Prize for literature, I guess the tradition of lionising men of letters who are apologists for mass murdering leftists is still alive and well.

    The Radio Equalizer- Brian Maloney ^ | September 16th, 2005 | Brian Maloney
    Jay Severin's luck may have finally run out in Boston. After years of questions about the WTKK-FM talk host's wild boasts and other deceptive behavior, the Boston Globe's Scot Lehigh examined his most outrageous: Severin's claim to be a Pulitzer Prize winner. The result was a devastating piece that should shatter sleazy Severin's talk radio future. His academic background, place of residence, even his real name, have all apparently been faked. And the timing couldn't be worse for the self-described "libertarian/libertine" host, more on that in a moment. The Radio Equalizer raised other questions about Severin's claims in this July...

    OCCASIONAL LISTENERS to ''Extreme Games" on WTKK are accustomed to host Jay Severin admiring himself in the mirror of his own imagination, a glass so vast and glittering as to rival the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles. But last Friday, the talkmaster positively outdid himself in setting new laurels upon his brow: He awarded himself a Pulitzer Prize. That came as part of a conversation with a caller about the declining standards he sees in journalism. Here's what Jay said: ''But since journalism began, and up until the time at least that I took my master's degree at Boston University...

    BREAKING NEWS PHOTOGRAPHY Associated Press StaffThese photos have to be seen to be believed. They are the collection of AP photos from Arab photographers in the Middle East that recently won the Pulitzer Prize. Every single one shows either: (1) triumphant terrorists, (2) defeated or exhausted Americans, (3) Arabs angry at Americans for something, or (4) Abu Ghirab. Seriously, you have to look at the page. Here is the Link. Send this page to a friend. Treason? Maybe, maybe not. But the Associated Press has definitively marked itself as Al Qaeda's official publicists.

    PORTLAND -- A reporter for Willamette Week, the Portland alternative weekly, has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting. Nigel Jaquiss exposed a sexual relationship between former Gov. Neil Goldschmidt and an underage girl while Goldschmidt was Portland's mayor in the 1970s. The 14-year-old girl was his children's babysitter. The revelation drove Goldschmidt, a high-level consultant and power broker, from public life. Tears came to Jaquiss' eyes when he heard the announcement Monday. He said it was a terrific honor he never thought would be his. Jaquiss is a former Wall Street stock trader who moved to Portland eight...

    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...

    The first few columns I wrote as a burgeoning political commentator were mainly on the subject of media bias. Even after writing 4 separate articles on the subject, I was still not prepared for what has been revealed about the Bush National Guard memos, as reported on by Dan Rather on CBS’s 60 Minutes II last week. Not 24 hours after Dan Rather reported these memos, questions began to arise regarding the authenticity of these supposed National Guard file documents. The first implications that the documents were probably not written when and by whom the 60 Minutes II piece indicated,...

    When asked what is the most important part of any news story, Joseph Pulitzer replied, "Accuracy, accuracy, accuracy." I've always thought that whether it's selling newspapers, a documentary, a speech to the Rotary Club, or used cars, if you want to have viewers tomorrow try deceit, if you want to have viewers ten years from tomorrow, try honesty. I have read about as much as anyone on the subject of the Bush National Guard memos. In fact, starting today I'll stop the reading. The excellent discussions and technical research presented here and now in several major news sources leaves very...

    The Pulitzer Prizes announced this week demonstrate again the stranglehold that liberals and leftists enjoy when it comes to garnering recognition from those who bestow honors for outstanding journalism and writing.While it is laudable that Anne Applebaum, who serves on the liberal Washington Post editorial board, won for documenting the terrors of the Soviet Gulag, it should be recalled that Solzhenitsyn’s monumental work on the same subject appeared in the 1970s. Likewise, the award given to William Taubman for his Khrushchev biography comes long after the Soviet Union itself had admitted to the crimes and repression documented. It has apparently...

    John Toland, a best-selling historian whose book "The Rising Sun: The Decline and Fall of the Japanese Empire, 1936-1945" won the 1971 Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction, died on Sunday at Danbury Hospital in Connecticut. He was 91 and lived in Danbury. The cause was pneumonia, said his daughter Tamiko Toland. Reviewing "The Rising Sun" (Random House) for The New York Times, Walter Clemons called it a "big, absorbing and finally very moving history of the Pacific war, told primarily from the Japanese viewpoint." In research for his books, Mr. Toland typically sought to do as many interviews as possible, sometimes...

    Anti-Union actions conflict with P-D's editorial philosophy and past stances.Management's demands would be the first step to breaking the St. Louis Newspaper Guild, which has represented the bulk of Post-Dispatch employees for over 60 years.Hypocrisy, pure and simple.  The Post-Dispatch has a long and honorable history of championing the rights of unions and ordinary working people. The newspaper is proud of the support it has given over the decades to the development of the union movement. That is why the newspaper's current position in bargaining with its own employees is so glaringly contrary to its own stated beliefs, and why our...
  • Lying N.Y. Times Keeps Tainted Pulitzer

    Just because the left-wingers at the New York Times ran propaganda for Ed Asner's favorite genocidal dictator, Joseph Stalin, doesn't mean the paper has to return a tainted Pulitzer Prize. "The board determined that there was not clear and convincing evidence of deliberate deception, the relevant standard in this case," Pulitzer administrator Sig Gissler claimed today. After a worldwide outcry from Ukrainians and other decent human beings, a Pulitzer subcommittee in April launched a "review" of pro-Soviet propaganda written by the Times' useful idiot Walter Duranty, who in 1932 was handed the prize. Duranty somehow failed to report how Stalin's...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- The 1932 Pulitzer Prize awarded to a New York Times reporter accused of deliberately ignoring the forced famine in Ukraine will not be revoked, an administrator for the journalism awards said Friday. "The board determined that there was not clear and convincing evidence of deliberate deception, the relevant standard in this case," Pulitzer administrator Sig Gissler said in a statement. A review of Walter Duranty's work was launched in April by a Pulitzer subcommittee. The review came amid complaints that Duranty's reports intentionally made no mention of the Soviet Union's forced famine in Ukraine in 1932-1933...

    Since Jayson Blair was exposed and fired on May 1, the New York Times has been performing atonement for partisanship and hubris. First came the long and painful front-page account of how management had been guilty of astonishing incompetence in failing to recognize Blair's deceptions. Next there was the establishment of the Siegal committee, which met for several weeks to recommend damage-control measures such as the appointment of an ombudsman for the first time ever. When this failed to end the storm, Publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. fired Executive Editor Howell Raines and Managing Editor Gerald Boyd. (Sulzberger, a permanent boy...
