Americans for Fairness in Awarding Journalism Prizes, or AFAJP, is a nonprofit* watchdog group committed to exposing those who engage in improper journalism award giving. Established in 1944, AFAJP has since grown to 742 chapters nationwide, and now boasts a membership of over 15 million Americans.
On June 20, The Onion, America’s Finest News Source, celebrates its 1000th issue, and AFAJP intends to mobilize its entire apparatus to ensure that the Pulitzer Board stop its blatant discrimination against The Onion and honor its landmark achievement with the prize it so richly deserves.
We at AFAJP are asking how much longer the Pulitzer Board can turn a blind eye to what is, year in and year out, the most in-depth, comprehensive, elegant, and masterful reporting in the United States of America. How much longer must The Onion endure this grave injustice?
Bottom Line: It’s time for the Pulitzer Board to stop the bias, stop the ignorance, and stop the neglect.
So, join the fight today. Upload a video onto our website, sign our petition, and fill out our form letter. Let the members of the Pulitzer Board know that their prejudice against The Onion must end now.
