Wittes on Pulitzers

Over at The New Republic, Ben Wittes makes the point that the Washington Post and the Guardian do not really deserve the Pulitzers they won for their reporting on the NSA surveillance program. I concur in each and every particular of Wittes' argument. If stirring up debate is enough to win a Pulitzer, then why not give one to the Westboro Baptist Church?
