As when The Washington Post was awarded a Pulitzer for revealing that the CIA was using facilities in Eastern Europe to interrogate known terrorists. Or, when The New York Times won a Pulitzer for compromising the top secret domestic eavesdropping program aimed at terrorists trying to communicate with sleeper cells in our nation.

With this ill-advised reporting, the far-left will tell you the rights of the terrorists were protected. Because The Washington Post and The New York Times knowingly and eagerly revealed information that undermined our national security, our intelligence operatives will tell you that an unknown number of terrorists escaped capture and justice.

As this yearly farce plays out, the Columbia Journalism School needs to either stop awarding the biased prizes altogether, or just honestly call them what they’ve become: The Pulitzer Prizes for Liberal Journalism and Writing.
