NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report) April 16, 2012 – In an unprecedented honor for the Rupert Murdoch-led network, the Fox News Channel today won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

In its official statement, the prize committee praised Fox for exhibiting "an imagination and inventiveness that rival the best of Charles Dickens and J.R.R. Tolkien."

In hailing Fox, the committee singled out the network's fourteen-part story about President Obama's birth in a mud-hut in Kenya.

For Mr. Murdoch, the stunning Pulitzer Prize win was a rare bright spot in what he acknowledged had been "a difficult year."

"When I first heard about the Pulitzer committee's decision, I didn't believe it," he said. "I had to listen to their voicemails to hear it for myself."
