Question of the Day
Yesterday's question of the day asked: When has a Pulitzer Prize been taken away, and what was the reason for the forfeiture? That would be 1981, when Washington Post's Janet Cooke was awarded the Pulitzer for Feature Writing. This award was later rescinded when her story on a young heroin addict was discovered to be fabricated, and the award instead went to Teresa Carpenter of The Village Voice.
Congratulations to freelance journalist Annie Dance for being the the first to answer correctly! Honorable mentions also go out to Jeanne Kirk, Edward Tenner, Paul DelColle, eschuman, Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay Times, Cindi Lash of Pittsburgh Magazine, freelance journalist Amy Zipkin, and Jennifer Mascia for all answering correctly.
And here's today's question: There was a song that was written by a folksinger about what Cooke did. What was it called, and who was it by? Bonus points if you link to a sound file/recording of it!
