Walter Duranty was the ignominious Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times correspondent who covered up the evidence of Stalin’s terror famine and mass murder in the 1930’s.

Michael Ledeen nominates Washington Post correspondent Karl Vick for the Walter Duranty Memorial Prize in his NRO column “Fisk Vick, again.” In his column Ledeen focuses on the article coauthored by Vick and David Finkel that appeared in yesterday’s Post. Ledeen first whacked at Vick last month in “Fisk Vick.” Ledeen’s judgment of Vick is harsh, but Ledeen’s column yesterday makes a powerful case.
