Pulitzers Given For Advancing The Left’s Agenda

From the New York Times:

Times Wins Four Pulitzers; Brooklyn Nonprofit Is Awarded a Reporting Prize

By CHRISTINE HAUGHNEY | April 15, 2013

The New York Times won four Pulitzer Prizes on Monday, including two awards for its reporting on the actions of companies like Apple and Wal-Mart overseas, and another for an examination of the hidden wealth of the Chinese premier’s family.

Thank God the New York Times went after the evil Wal-Mart for creating jobs in Mexico, and evil Apple for creating jobs in China.

In a sign of the changing news business, an independent nonprofit organization based in Brooklyn, InsideClimate News, won the prize for national reporting for its coverage of dangers posed by oil pipelines

And independent nonprofit that is funded by "the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment." That is real ‘independence.’

The Washington Post won a Pulitzer Prize for Philip Kennicott’s criticism of art and the social forces that underlie it, including an examination of the allure of violence and misfortune in an essay after the Newtown school shootings called “Why Do We Stare?” …

The Denver Post won in the breaking news category for its coverage of the theater shootings last summer in Aurora, Colo. The Pulitzer committee recognized how The Post’s reporting staff used social media tools like Twitter, Facebook and video to “capture a breaking story and provide context.”

A finalist in the same category was the staff of The Hartford Courant for its coverage of the Newtown school massacre…

While the board that administers the Pulitzers started including online-only news sites in its awards in 2009, InsideClimate News.com is by far the smallest of such winners. InsideClimate News described itself as a five-year nonprofit organization financed by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Marisla Foundation and the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment. Its newsroom currently includes only seven full-time journalists.

In fact, it does not have a news room. It does not have an office:

David Sassoon, founder and publisher of the news site, said his staff celebrated on a telephone conference call because they work from their homes.

In other words, they are bloggers. But they were given a prize for writing endlessly about the incredible dangers of oil pipelines. While being paid by a special interest environmentalists foundation.

Sometimes it almost seems as if the Pulitzer committee has a political agenda.

  1. No coverage of real events

    Only awards for propaganda

  2. Liberals Demise

    Yet another award deemed worthless by self serving bastards.
    What’s next. …….. the Nobel Prize?

    If only I were as smart as the NY Times writers, I would have realized that Mexico was overseas.

  4. Right of the People

    Dr. Goebbels would be so proud.

    Glad I was sitting down for this one. What does the Left value and how can we ever have some agreement with them?
