There is plenty of print coverage of the 2009 Pulitzer Prizes. But something in the media coverage is lacking.

Glenn Greenwald discusses the lack of television coverage of the 2009 Pulitzer Prizes, in particular for David Barstow's win for investigative reporting.

Awarded to David Barstow of The New York Times for his tenacious reporting that revealed how some retired generals, working as radio and television analysts, had been co-opted by the Pentagon to make its case for the war in Iraq, and how many of them also had undisclosed ties to companies that benefited from policies they defended.

Working as radio and television analysts. Co-opted by the Pentagon. Undisclosed ties to companies. Do we really find it strange that the television companies who employed these co-opted analysts are silent on the matter?
