Video: Pulitzer for National Enquirer?

  1. Closed captioning of: Pulitzer for National Enquirer?

    >>> barren by wildfires.

    >>> could another sex scandal net a supermarket tabloid the pulitzer prize . let's get the scoop from courtney, msnbc.com pop culture queen.

    >>> " national enquirer " breaks one of the biggest stories we've had in recent memory, the john edwards scandal, denying his child. the " national enquirer " came out in 2009 with dna tests that proved that was his child. finally you had him admitting what had gone on. naturally i think any news organization who broke that sort of story would want to do, they threw their name in the hat for the pulitzer prize . initially there was talk they wouldn't be considered because of their tabloid status. it's been confirmed by people close to the pulitzer committee this they are, indeed, being considered for the pulitzer.

    >> that's incredible.

    >> i think it's entirely fair. among things the " national enquirer " revealed, it basically led to the grand jury probe that will be finding out more about that in, i believe, next month, whether he mismanaged campaign donations and all types of funding. i think they did fantastic reporting in this case. is it the " national enquirer " at the end of the day? yes. why should something considered a tabloid not be capable of hard news reporting and be punished because what they are seen at the supermarket news stand. interesting. we'll see how that plays out. this weekend after thinking about tiger woods please go to the movies. the big talk "shutter island" martin scorsese and leonardo dicaprio . this was supposed to come out in october pushed to february 19th because of the economy. a lot of people thought it might be a bad movie . february is historically a month where movies go to die. studio paramount said releasing in the fourth quarter would have been devastating.

    >> go to msnbc.com for information.
