Our weekly recognition of less-than meritorious excellence in journalism worthy of Pulitzer consideration.

As an extension of the media-mocking venture at Townhall, Riffed From The Headlines, we once again recognize the exalted performances in our journalism industry and compile worthy submissions to the Pulitzer Prize board in numerous categories. To properly recognize the low watermark in the press, let us get right to the latest exemplars of journalistic mis-excellence.

The New York Times

The Paper of Record is being recognized here for its recent coverage of the HR-1 bill that failed to pass through Congress. In one piece The Times noted the bill was never going to fix the issues it was touted to address. Another article noted the various flaws found therein. And still another entry noted how this was mostly an effort by the Democrats to motivate their base of voters for the upcoming election. The paper even gave this eye-opening detail.

“The provision to roll back voter identification laws across the country went against public opinion. A Monmouth University poll released Monday showed 80 percent support for mandatory identification checks at the polls.”

The Times appears to have made a wholesale shift in approach after the bill failed, following months of glowing coverage and doing its part to urge the legislation into passage. Once it stalled out without enough support, only then did we learn of the negatives attached to the bill.
