It was announced today that Columbia University will no longer award the Pulitzer Prize to any work of journalism written after 1998. "In light of the Stephen Glass and Jayson Blair scandals," said Chairman Paul Tash, "as well as countless smaller acts of plagiarism and fabrication, we can no longer vote for anyone from the 'plagiarism era.'
