Trump SLAMS The Pulitzer Board

The Pulitzer Prize is highly sought-after and is awarded for achievements in newspapers, magazines, online journalism, and literature.

Throughout history, there have been writers who truly deserved the award.

However, within the last several years the award has been given to anyone who pushes the most propaganda.

Trump has had enough of the Pullitzer board and has called them out for refusing to take back their awards to the NY Times and Washington Post for their coverage of the Russian hoax which has been officially debunked.

President Trump would go on to say “instead of acting with integrity and providing transparency, the Pulitzer Board is running cover for the biggest reporting failure in modern history: the fake Russia Russia Russia collusion hoax”.

The Epoch Times added these details:

Former President Donald Trump criticized the Pulitzer Prize Board on July 18 for refusing to rescind the 2018 awards given to The New York Times and The Washington Post for their coverage of the now-debunked counter-intelligence story of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

“The Pulitzer Board has taken away any shred of credibility it had left with its ‘response’ regarding the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting, which was awarded to The New York Times and The Washington Post for blatant fake news,” Trump said in a statement released on Monday.

“Instead of acting with integrity and providing transparency, the Pulitzer Board is running cover for the biggest reporting failure in modern history: the fake Russia Russia Russia collusion hoax,” Trump added.

In 2018, the board handed the two outlets its National Reporting prizes 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.”

Trump formally asked the board to withdraw the prizes in October 2021, when he sent a letter to Bud Kliment, who was then-interim administrator of the awards. In his letter, Trump said the coverage was based on “false reporting of a non-existent link between the Kremlin and the Trump Campaign.”

The former president pointed to the indictment of Michael Sussmann, the former attorney for Hilary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, who was charged last year with making false statements to the FBI.

Newsmax had more on the story:

President Donald Trump strongly criticized the Pulitzer Board for its decision not to retract the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting, which it awarded to The New York Times and The Washington Post for their coverage of “Russian interference in the U.S. election and its connections to the Trump campaign.”

In a statement, Trump accused the Board of taking away “any shred of credibility it had left” and said, “instead of acting with integrity and providing transparency, the Pulitzer Board is running cover for the biggest reporting failure in modern history: the fake Russia, Russia, Russia collusion hoax.”

Trump then asked, if the Board will not retract its award, would the Post or the Times admit their reporting was false.

“These outlets should hand back their prizes without notification from Pulitzer, which would be the honorable thing to do,” Trump’s statement continued.

If the Times or Post should get a Pulitzer Prize, it should be in a new category of disinformation for “helping to perpetrate a false story created and peddled by Crooked Hillary Clinton, the DNC, and certain lowlife Democrats,” Trump added.
