Conservative author Jonah Goldberg drops claim of two Pulitzer nominations
Another grifter, but gotta love the irony.

Conservative author Jonah Goldberg drops claim of two Pulitzer nominations

Penguin Group (USA)

The book jacket of Jonah Goldberg's "The Tyranny of Clichs: How Liberals Cheat in the War of Ideas" describes him as twice nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. The publisher said Tuesday it would remove the claim. He was one of thousands of entrants, not a nominated finalist.

By Bill Dedman

Investigative Reporter, msnbc.com


When this bit of rsum inflation was pointed out by a reporter for msnbc.com, Goldberg said he hadn't meant to mislead anyone and removed the Pulitzer claim from his bio at National Review Online. (Here's the page before and now.) And he added, "I never put it in the bio in the first place."

His publisher, Penguin Group (USA), said the error was unintentional and it would remove the Pulitzer word from his book jacket when it's time for the first reprint, "just like any other innocent mistake brought to our attention."

Never meant to mislead anyone? So, what was your actual intent when you lied?
