  • Group Of Scholars Call For Pulitzer Prize To Be Revoked For 1619 Project Author

    The National Association of Scholars (NAS) is calling on the Pulitzer Prize Board to “rescind” the prize awarded to New York Times writer Nikole Hannah-Jones over the summer for her work on the 1619 Project where she asserts, with “no evidence,” that slavery was the reason the American Revolution was fought. “We call on the Pulitzer Prize Board to rescind the 2020 Prize for Commentary awarded to Nikole Hannah-Jones for her lead essay in ‘The 1619 Project,’” the NAS wrote in a public letter to the board. “That essay was entitled, ‘Our democracy’s founding ideals were false when they were...
  • Media Silent As Christopher Steele ‘Hero’ ‘Spymaster’ Narrative Crumbles

    For years, the media assured Americans that the dossier alleging treasonous collusion between Donald Trump and Russia was based on the scrupulous work of a mastermind British ex-spy and his vast network of credible and well-connected sources spread throughout Europe. It wasn’t true. Steele did not personally collect any of the factual information in his reports. The “vast network” was instead a “social circle” of an American-based former Brookings Institute junior staffer, recently identified for the first time as Igor Danchenko. The friends didn’t have well-documented claims so much as rumors, drunken gossip, and outright brainstorming, conjecture, and speculation. Even...

    "I see America, not in the setting sun of a black night of despair ahead of us, I see America in the crimson light of a rising sun fresh from the burning, creative hand of God. I see great days ahead, great days possible to men and women of will and vision," stated poet Carl Sandburg in an interview with Frederick Van Ryn of This Week Magazine (January 4, 1953, p. 11.) Carl Sandburg was born on January 6, 1878, to Swedish immigrants who worked on the railroad. After 8th grade, Carl Sandburg left school, borrowed his father's railroad pass,...

    The New York Times has apparently stolen its Pulitzer Prize-winning stories from Russian journalists – the same liberal anti-Putin reporters its correspondents have lionized. By Ben Norton The New York Times has been accused for a second time of stealing major scoops from Russian journalists. One of those stories won the Times a Pulitzer Prize this May.The journalists who have accused the Times of taking their work without credit also happen to be the same liberal media crusaders against Vladimir Putin that Western correspondents at the Times and other mainstream outlets have cast as persecuted heroes.The Pulitzer Prize Board is...
  • 1619 Project’s Pulitzer Gives Schools One More Excuse To Teach Kids To Hate America

    The Federalist ^ | May 7, 2020 | Inez Feltscher Stepman
    Despite the retractions, disparagement from legitimate historians, and ignored fact-checkers, the 1619 Project now boasts the industry’s most respected award. The Pulitzer committee on Monday afternoon bestowed its prestigious award on Nikole Hannah-Jones’ opening article in The New York Times’ 1619 Project, despite the essay’s self-acknowledged factual inaccuracies. Historians of every political stripe have derided the project and Hannah-Jones’s essay in particular. Gordon Wood, a reliably left-wing but widely celebrated historian, took to the pages of a socialist website, of all places, to excoriate the Times for publishing nonsense. Conservative-leaning biographer Richard Brookhiser questioned why even the Trotskyite Fourth International...
  • A Pulitzer Prize goes to a New York Times author who knowingly published lies

    American Thinker ^ | 05/05/2020 | Andrea Widburg
    In August 2019, the New York Times debuted the 1619 Project, the brainchild of Nikole Hannah-Jones, a Times staff writer. The premise was that 1619 marked the year in which the first African slaves came to America, permanently corrupting America’s founding. The 1619 Project was condemned for serious historical inaccuracies.* In her inaugural article -- “Our democracy’s founding ideals were false when they were written. Black Americans have fought to make them true” -- Hannah-Jones gave readers a foretaste of the errors that would follow in subsequent articles. Nevertheless, the Pulitzer committee awarded her its commentary award. Most strikingly, Hannah-Jones...

    New York Times correspondent Walter Duranty, as Andrea Widburg notes here, got a Pulitzer prize for lying about the massive crimes of communism in what was then the Ukraine. It's supposedly an embarassment. But not if you check out who got a Pulitzer this time: Greg Grandin, Hugo Chavez's biggest apologist. A guy who defends Hugo Chavez and all his crimes to his last breath. I'm not talking about a guy like Bernie Sanders who says 'yes socialism in Venezuela is great but there are problems.' Grandin is a real dyed-in-the-wool useful stooge who can't stop praising the brutal communist dictator. There never...

  • Pulitzer Prize to New York Times Essay Falsely Claiming American Revolution Was Fought to Preserve Slavery

    The 2020 Pulitzer Prize for commentary was awarded Monday to Nikole Hannah-Jones for an essay in the New York Times that falsely claimed the American Revolution was fought primarily to protect slavery. The essay, titled “Our democracy’s founding ideals were false when they were written. Black Americans have fought to make them true,” launched the Times‘ controversial 1619 project. The essay incorrectly claimed that the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776 (signing began weeks later, on August 2). However, the far more egregious error was Hannah-Jones’s claim about the cause for which the Revolution was fought. She...

    Today is a shameful, shameful day. I'm not even a credentialed historian, I'm just a citizen historian. I chose to be an outsider on purpose because these people in the historical field are dirty and it makes me proud to not be associated with them. But today, we learned just how deep in the mud they are. Even pigs are looking at historians today and shaking their heads. Nikole Hannah-Jones, chief propagandist for The New York Times' 1619 Project, has been awarded a Pulitzer for her disreputable work. You want to know just how corrupt history departments are? Nationwide, look...

    Washington Hoax ^ | 04/18/2018 | Paul Farhi
    The Washington Post was awarded two Pulitzer Prizes on Monday, capturing journalism’s most prestigious honor for its investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and for its coverage of the 2017 Senate race in Alabama, in which The Post broke the story of sexual misconduct allegations against the Republican candidate, Roy Moore. Both sets of stories exposed secret or undisclosed information and altered America’s political landscape. The Post’s revelations about Russia, including contacts between Russian figures and President Trump’s associates and advisers, helped set the stage for the special counsel’s ongoing investigation of the administration. The Moore stories were...

    The National Sentinel ^ | April 20, 2019 | Jon Dougherty
    One of the reasons why tens of millions of Americans put Donald Trump in the White House was because he wasn’t born and bred of the Washington political establishment. The primary reason why the Washington political establishment wants him out of the White House is precisely that he isn’t one of them. But try as they have, the D.C. Swamp — consisting of politicized factions within the Justice Department and intelligence community, working hand-in-hand with a corrupt elitist media — has been unable to depose POTUS Trump. Beyond that, they haven’t been able to shame Trump out of office, silence...

Yes, you read that correctly. One of the 3 articles that won The New York Times a 2017 Pulitzer prize is titled, ‘The Perfect Weapon: How Russian Cyberpower Invaded the U.S.’ dated December 13,2016.

    In June of 2013, the United States concluded that the Syrian government did use chemical weapons in its fight against opposition forces. President Obama immediately used this chemical attack as a pretext for invasion and authorized direct U.S. military support to the rebels, according to the White House. Since the US has been funding these ‘moderate rebels’ more than 250,000 people have been killed, over 7,600,000 have been internally displaced, and 4,000,000 other human beings have been forced from the country entirely. All of this death and destruction carried out by a sadistic army of rebels who’ve been funded and...

    A former senior adviser to the Joint Chiefs told me that the document was an ‘all-source’ appraisal, drawing on information from signals, satellite and human intelligence, and took a dim view of the Obama administration’s insistence on continuing to finance and arm the so-called moderate rebel groups. Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, director of the DIA between 2012 and 2014, confirmed that his agency had sent a constant stream of classified warnings to the civilian leadership about the dire consequences of toppling Assad. The jihadists, he said, were in control of the opposition. Turkey wasn’t doing enough to stop the smuggling...
