Pulitzer Predilections

Pulitzer_medalThe NY Sun sums up the latest Pulitzer outrage:

A feature by a New York Times reporter, Andrea Elliott, that this week was awarded a Pulitzer Prize has come under fire from critics because it did not mention that a murderer who committed a 1994 terrorist attack had been incited by a former imam at the Islamic Society of Bay Ridge, as well as for portraying a succeeding imam as moderate when he had praised the leader of Hamas and a female suicide bomber.

In 1994, Ari Halberstam was killed when Rashid Baz opened fire on a van carrying students across the Brooklyn Bridge. Read parts 1 2 and 3 of "An Imam in America," about Sheik Reda Shata. While Times Watch wondered about the series, L. Brent Bozell III wonders if the Pulitzer committee has it's own agenda.
