Guest Paul Posted April 26, 2009 Report Share Posted April 26, 2009 The New York Times has won 101 Pulitzer Prizes for excellence in journalism, far more than any other newspaper. http://www.pulitzer.org/bycat http://www.cnrnews.com/html/publications/n...ewyorktimes.htm The Times has long been considered the nation’s national newspaper and our national archivist. A newspaper isn’t good or poor because someone does or doesn’t agree with it. Unfortunately, some people on the radical right in the United States regularly condemn The New York Times because it prints news (also known as facts) that does not support their political prejudices and agenda. On this site, someone has taken to calling it names. Real news is not political. It should be factual. Like all other newspapers, the Times makes mistakes and is occasionally guilty of printing news that is not factual, but its verification standards are at the top of the field and the quality and talent of its reporters is unmatched. That is what all those Pulitzer Prizes mean. The Wall Street Journal has won Pulitzer Prizes, too. The prizes are given based on journalistic quality. When a newspaper has won as many Pulitzer Prizes as The New York Times or the Wall Street Journal, it merits respect, not sneering contempt. It’s called The New York Times. It remains the finest newspaper in the world. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
