    Seems like a foregone conclusion that Malala Yousafzai will win this year's Nobel Peace Prize: nyti.ms/16UhqVD

    Has there ever been such an overwhelming favorite? Anyone predicting an upset?

    She was on Jon Stewart last night. To say she affected him is an understatement.

    The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is your winner.

    Lots of journalists on twitter appear to be upset with the choice.

    And, a couple express why:

    Lot of journos criticism over Nobel peace prize seems to stem from fact Malala would have been better story if not necs a better recipient

    Nicholas Kristof -- ‏@NickKristof

    Nobel Peace Prize goes to Organization for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. Great group & cause. But still a bit of a letdown, no?
