Accuracy in Media

The Washington Post, which didn’t win a Pulitzer Prize this year, acted more like a sore loser than a nationally recognized newspaper when it buried the coverage of this year’s awards in the back of the Style section. In addition, two days later they ran a story criticizing the Pulitzer committee for not awarding a fiction prize this year.

This coverage differs from the previous four years when the Post won at least one Pulitzer.

2011: Page A1 tease, A03 article — one Pulitzer

2010: A1 article — four Pulitzers

2009: A1 tease, C1 article — one Pulitzer

2008: A1 article — six Pulitzers

This was the first time since 2007 that the Post didn’t win at least one Pulitzer and even then they mentioned the awards on the front page.

If the Post gets shut out again next year, look for the Pulitzer write-up in the Sports section.
