New York Times wins a Pulitzer for a story they suppressed since 2004.

Journalists love, love, love to give themselves awards and prizes.

These days, these awards mean nothing.

The New York Times won the big one for their “story” on Harvey Weinstein.

They had to share it with Ronan Farrow, who actually began the investigation before they did.

But they didn’t exactly earn this one for a very big reason.

They passed on the same story in 2004 when Sharon Waxman’s piece was killed.

Why didn’t she win the Pultizer?

Because she was silenced — and then the newspaper turns around and wins an award for something they were perfectly aware of for over a decade.

That’s how much these awards are worth…
