Rush Limbaugh ‘Nominates’ New Human Events Editor for Pulitzer Prize

The King of the Conservative Airwaves praises Jason Mattera on his radio program Tuesday.

During his Tuesday, April 13th live radio broadcast, conservative media titan Rush Limbaugh suggested that the reporting of new HUMAN EVENTS editor, Jason Mattera, was worthy of a Pulitzer Prize.

Limbaugh’s comments were sparked by Mattera’s latest ambush interview of Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), whom Mattera grilled over Frank’s past ethical lapses and role in the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac housing debacles.  (Watch Limbaugh excerpt by clicking here.)

After airing a portion of Mattera’s hard-hitting interview of Rep. Frank, Limbaugh said, “Speaking of Pulitzers, Jason Mattera would have gotten a Pulitzer today if Barney Frank were a Republican.”  Limbaugh said that the media overlooked Frank’s transgression while aggressively attacking Republicans for similar offenses.

Mattera’s aggressive journalistic style is showcased in his new book, Obama Zombies: How the Liberal Machine Brainwashed My Generation (Threshold Editions) which will debut at #14 on this Sunday’s New York Times bestseller list.  Limbaugh has previously endorsed Obama Zombies, dubbing Mattera, 26, a protege of sorts, calling him a Rush baby.

On March 31, 2010, Joseph Guerriero, the publisher of HUMAN EVENTS, announced that Mattera had been tapped to serve as the paper’s editor, noting that he believed Mattera is the youngest editor in America to lead a major national periodical.
