The Pulitzers and their prestige

The New York Post heaves deserved scorn at the Pulitzer Prizes for ignoring Claudia Rosett and giving a prize to leak—receiver Dana Priest instead.

Long gone are the days when journalists paid respect to the notion of national security. Now, journalism's most prestigious awards seem to encourage the opposite: undermining national security for the sake of individual self—aggrandizement.

Maybe it's a greater honor that Rosett didn't receive a Pulitzer.
