Eyes on the Prize

Differing views on this year's Pulitizer Prize winners:

"[Pulitzer Prize winners Dana Priest, James Risen and Eric Lichtblau] took classified information, secret information, published it in their newspapers, against the wishes of the president. ...I don't think what they did was worthy of an award -- I think what they did was worthy of jail." -- CNN commentator & Reagan/Bush administration Cabinet Secretary William Bennett

"In particular, the awards presented to reporters James Risen and Eric Lichtblau of the New York Times and Dana Priest of the Washington Post as well as editorial cartoonist Mike Luckovich of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution could be called a reflection of Bush's declining national approval rating." -- Jon Friedman, Marketwatch, DowJones Publishing (Romensko)
