Quote:In an unprecedented honor for the Rupert Murdoch-led network, the Fox News Channel today won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

In its official statement, the prize committee praised Fox for exhibiting “an imagination and inventiveness that rival the best of Charles Dickens and J.R.R. Tolkien.”

In hailing Fox, the committee singled out the network’s fourteen-part story about President Obama’s birth in a mud-hut in Kenya.

He's a satirical blogger AK, I looked and couldn't find another source on it.
Some of the other headlines on the site were:
Cheney Receives Heart Transplant; Bush Still on Waiting List for Brain
and
In Positive Economic Sign, Republicans Starting to Say Obama Wasn’t Born in US Again rofl.gif

The funny part is the damn story is closer to fact than most things on FOX news.

It's satire. No award was given for the fiction category this year. There was a three way tie so the award was dropped this year.

I am not your carpet ride I am the sky

I have no problem telling what is real and what is not. You must not drink enough beer.
