The 2008 Pulitzer Prize Winners have been announced. I don’t agree with who won, but the Idaho Statesman being named a finalist for their coverage of Larry Craig? Give me a break.
This was neither breaking news or good coverage of the the story. It was sensationalized with some elements of truth built in. The Idaho Statesman has always been out to get Larry Craig. What I find funny is that they did not break the story.
Rumors have always flown around about Larry Craig, but there hasn’t been that much of proof. This story provided an insight and the Idaho Statesman went for the jugular.
Now this mediocre newspaper is claiming victory by being named a finalist for a Pulitzer.
