Unexpectedly Intriguing!
May 11, 2005

I hope that's not as vain as it sounds. Since Political Calculations is now over six months old, I marked the occasion by submitting a post from more than sixty days ago to this week's Best of Me Symphony, where bloggers may re-run their "good old stuff." Fans of "Monty Python" may get a kick out of the quotes that have been paired with each contribution.

My contribution examines "The Legacy of Walter Duranty," where a New York Times journalist hid the truth about massive famines in Josef Stalin's Soviet Union while receiving a Pulitzer prize for his "reporting" from the affected region in 1932. That legacy of trading truth for status continues today as both the New York Times and the Pulitzer Prize Board refuse to respectively renounce or revoke Duranty's prize.
