Ollie Ox says: Nice try, but not cigar.If you read the story, Salon started with coverage four years before. See http://archive.salon.com/news/feature/2005/02/18/walter_reed/index.html

The Pulitzer committee is often generous to the Washington Post.

The commenter said:

While Salon is doing an admirable job on the military mental-health issue, "Salon led the way in exposing bad conditions at Walter Reed" isn't accurate. The 2008 Pulitzer Prize for public service was awarded "to the Washington Post for the work of Dana Priest, Anne Hull and photographer Michel du Cille in exposing mistreatment of wounded veterans at Walter Reed Hospital, evoking a national outcry and producing reforms by federal officials." Salon followed the story closely, but Priest, Hull and Du Cille led the way.
