Pulitzer for The National Enquirer?
The long-scorned tabloid, The National Enquirer, is reportedly in the running for a Pulitzer prize. The Pulitzer folks have allowed them into the race, submitting the stories that broke the John Edwards story. (This news was broken by the Huffington Post and then reported in The New York Times, and of course The Enquirer.)
The Enquirer deserves to win, and not just because it’s thrilling to see an underdog rise to fame. They did an extraordinary job of reporting and I’m glad to see prejudices and outdated images of the publication give way to recognizing this excellent newspaper work.
Bold updated admission of my own: I have a glance at the Enquirer website most every day I’m at a computer.
