And the reward for best piece of terrorist propaganda disguised as news photography goes to…

...the Associated Press! Congrats, guys. Walter Duranty would be proud, were he not so dead and communist.

Sure you just reported on the usual “dog bites man, blows up schoolchildren” type of story—but you did it with such bravado. With such zest. And with numerous other adjectives that would make good soap names.

Hey, maybe if you play your cards right, you can cut a deal with al-Qaeda too! What if you could’ve had cameras on the twin towers when they where hit by airplanes? That would be worth like a million Pulitzers, plus the authentic, hollowed out skull of Ansel Adams!

update: We have an early contender for next year's pulitzer.
