Every single year the Pulitzers get worse and worse. And they followed this pattern today.
I forgot to mention that the original date for the announcements was 4/20. They postponed it for two weeks.
And the Pulitzer Prize for plagiarism goes to......!
So the rule of thumb seems to be: The further left your writing tilts, the more likely you’ll be in the running for a Pulitzer.

What stopped you from posting the whole thing?
As valued as the ‘No-Bells’ prizes these days?
Sorry, it was a knee-jerk reaction.
...during the great Ukrainian famine of the early 1930s, which Stalin engineered to crush millions of peasants who resisted his policies, Duranty dismissed other correspondents' reports of mass starvation and, though secretly aware of the full scale of the horror, effectively reinforced the official cover-up of one of history's greatest man-made disasters. Later, he took the rigged show trials of Stalin's Great Purges at face value, blithely accepting the guilt of the victims. He believed himself the leading expert on the Soviet Union, and his faith in his own insight drew him into a downward spiral of distortions and untruths, typified by his memorable excuse for Stalin's crimes, "You can't make an omelet without breaking eggs."Duranty won the Pulitzer for the New York Times for this reporting. The Pulitzer Committee has not rescinded the award.
The Pulitzer Committee continues in the proud tradition of Walter Duranty.
Total lie that is the 1619 project got one. Not surprising.
LOL! So I went and looked. SMDH! Really, a musical about the central park 5? Really? What a joke the organization has become.
As far as I’m concerned, anything involving ProPublica (which practices doxxing) deserves a booby prize!!!!
However, ProPublica has some very stiff competition for the booby prize from some of these other “winners”!!!!
You know that bad news messengers have to wear Kevlar vests and metal helmets and steel toed boots. Just to be safe.
I’m still in suspense and haven’t looked yet but hoping for Don Lemon, Jake Tapper and Rachel Maddow. Wait, do they have to actually do something? Maybe “For uncovering how bad a President Trump is by investigative journalism.” /s
Amazing how many prizes Fox, James O’Keefe, Wall Street Journal, Sarah Carter etc. won this year. Oh wait -maybe not.
"In the Breaking News Reporting category, the staff of The Courier-Journal in Louisville, Ky., won "for its rapid coverage of hundreds of last-minute pardons by outgoing Kentucky governor" Matt Bevin (R).
The New York Times' Brian Rosenthal won a Pulitzer in the Investigative Reporting category for his expose on New York City's taxi industry "that showed how lenders profited from predatory loans that shattered the lines of drivers."
The Times also captured the International Reporting award for a set of stories "exposing the predations of Vladimir Putin's regime," as well as in the Commentary category, with writer Nikole Hannah-Jones winning for her work on the paper's 1619 Project exploring the history of slavery in the U.S."
Music: The Central Park Five, by Anthony Davis Premiered on June 15, 2019 at the Long Beach Opera, a courageous operatic work, marked by powerful vocal writing and sensitive orchestration, that skillfully transforms a notorious example of contemporary injustice into something empathetic and hopeful. Libretto by Richard Wesley.
