Top Washington political blogger says the NATIONAL ENQUIRER should get the Pulitzer Prize for historic John Edwards investigation.
Emily Miller, a correspondent for the website Politics Daily.com blogged yesterday with the headline: "Does the National Enquirer Deserve a Pulitzer for Breaking the John Edwards Scandal?"
"The National Enquirer is a supermarket tabloid, but the time has come for the media elite to admit that it has an excellent investigative reporting team, which broke the biggest political scandal of 2009, the John Edwards affair," she writes.
"While its own editor concedes that the paper would never be given a Pulitzer Prize — the jury is dominated by the newspaper establishment — I believe the time has come for us to recognize the Enquirer’s political investigative reporting."
Ms. Miller then takes to task the negligence of mainstream media to acknowledge a major political tempest brewing in their own teapot as they rode the campaign trail with the candidate, his wife and his mistress.
"The Enquirer scooped the old-guard media for the better part of a year — even after it broke a blockbuster political story that should have piqued the curiosity of working journos at any big-time news organization."
