Both The New York Times and The Washington Post, who spread fake news like a toddler finger painting over fresh white walls, just won Pulitzer Prizes for national news reporting. That’s it. Everything after this opening paragraph is just mockery.
Here’s what the official Pulitzer website had to say:
For deeply sourced, relentlessly reported coverage in the public interest that dramatically furthered the nation’s understanding of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and its connections to the Trump campaign, the President-elect’s transition team and his eventual administration. (The New York Times entry, submitted in this category, was moved into contention by the Board and then jointly awarded the Prize.)
“Deeply sourced.” “Relentless reporting.” “Dramatically furthered.”
M’kay. So first, as I was scrolling through the winners, the Pulitzer committee also awarded the “Public Service” award to the New York Times and The New Yorker for busting the likes of Harvey Weinstein. In that case, I fully agree. Weinstein occupied his patriarchal throne terrorizing young — often defenseless and entrapped women — for far too long. It took cojones of steel to finally take that rapetastic monster down. Okay? Okay.
But a “National Reporting” award to these two publications for “OMG TRUMP IS A RUSSIAN WHORE’S PEE PEE UMBRELLA” stretches my ability to suspend disbelief. Perhaps the Pulitzer committee got their “works of fiction” confused with “national reporting.” Or perhaps the lines between “reporting” and “fiction” have been blurred for a while now.
To be clear, Louder with Crowder is a commentary website. We’re not bringers of national news. And no, I’m not jealous we weren’t awarded a Pulitzer. Though it seems if I wanted this site to get an award, just writing things like “Trump plays Russian Barbie Dolls with Mueller” would be a fine first step.
