The New York Times and The Washington Post won Pulitzer Prizes for their “Russia Collusion” stories in 2018, stories based in lies.
To directly quote the 2018-2019 Pulitzer Prize Board, these news agencies earned the awards, “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 Durham Report exposed all of that to simply be false. There was no Russian interference in the 2016 election. There was no collusion between the Russian government and the Trump campaign. There were no Russians directing Trump’s transition team and his administration. Disinformation, a purposeful lie, was weaponized against the right.
Rachel Maddow claimed Trump was an actual agent of Russia taking orders from Vladimir Putin. Do you realize what damage that lie has done to our society? Maddow, along with many others, has lost all sense of duty to the truth, and the American people are paying the price.
Their sources were from the deep state; the very people who concocted the lie in the first place. And because the media also hated Trump, they went with it.

Was any thinking person surprised! Most people knew years ago what was going on. Sadly nothing will happen to any of these sleezy characters that were involved in this coup
I must say I shed a tear to see how far our Great Nation has tumbled! Mostly from Corruption above and our dereliction to see how far out of control things have gotten
Just remember that the mainstream news actually originates from the National Security Agency. They demand the censorship of the American people wherever possible, rapidly tightening the noose.
Yes, and it proved water is wet.
The left still denies it, the alleged Republicans won’t do a thing and we slip further into a mix of fascism/socialism.
Now let the horde of MRAK radical leftist extremist trolls descend on this story, and desperately and laughably try to claim that there is no such thing as the deep state. Their denials of obvious reality are as predictable as the sunrise.
I am more of a non-leftist troll. This author is as delusional as most of you guys. Deep State or whatever it is, thank Buddha that it kept Orange and Fat Trumpy from totally destroying this country!
Whatever. The lies and denials of reality of a radical leftist extremist, which is what you are, are as completely predictable as they are laughable.
The oft repeated thought that the infamous pee pee dossier was generated from opposition research is as big of lie as “Russian collusion”. How can research reveal events that never happened? No, the whole thing was contrived from the beginning, every bit of it. All of it, from the dossier, through Comey’s sharing it with Trump, to the Useful Idiots carrying Hillary’s bath water every night on the nightly news, through to those lying congressional b*st*rds trying to sink President Trump’s administration at every turn, was a frame up from the beginning. That anyone would consume anything from the NYTs, WaPo, CNN, or the like, on down to their leashed lapdogs at the ADN (except to know thy enemy) is beyond me. Like the dead skunk in the middle of the road, “…they’re stinkin’ to high heaven!”
I get all my news from Fox too. Who just coincidentally shelled out 850 million for defamation for knowingly broadcasting lies. I get it!
The problem with this is nobody will be held accountable for treason unlike the j6 bunch. The DOJ will stand behind the left and refuse to uphold the law. The DOJ is when the issues stop and the problems begin. We have no peaceful way to stop the dark state.
Right on! The DOJ participated and continue to do so. This is proof that our government is no longer of or for the people.
Had Senator Stevens not been one of the initial targets/victim of this evil entity. He might’ve not been on that plane that day.
The deep state has been in existence long before Stevens flew into a mountain. Probably the founding members of the country were deep staters. All of a sudden something happens and everybody thinks this is a new gig. Become a student of History and you won’t be surprised the next time lightning strikes twice.
You don’t think Begich and Boggs got taken out by Nixon years ago?
Can a Pulitzer Prize be rescinded if the journalism is based on a falsehood?
Our country is not healthy, morally corrupt, lacking true leadership and civic duty. We see it not only as a country but also from our city and state.

A roll of toilet paper is more useful than a Pulitzer prize especially during a scamdemic.
I kept wrapping my face mask with more and layers of toilet paper…. It worked just as well as no mask at all.
Was the issue the fact that you were using soiled toilet paper? Toilet paper can be a fantastic filter media. I used to use single-ply rolls in an old 67 Chevy pickup that I had. No lie.
I disagree that nothing will become of these acts. I believe there will be military loyal to the in force US Constitution, review of the actors undeniably involved and swift remedy meted out in view of everyone in the world. Satan is liar. Evil will have its just reward. The earth will stand forever and never deal with this standard and level of degeneracy being tolerated again anywhere.
Or, we could all wait for the next asteroid to hit and the Earth can go through its fourth mass Extinction. Or there could be another great flood to clean out all the bad guys. Could be the next virus that does it. You’re right it’s going to happen, and there’s nothing we can do about it. It’s not who we are.
Deep state, deep state, deep state, Bengazhi, Bengazhi, Benghazi, Don’t you fat right loons ever get tired of making up new boogeymen that are lies
Don’t you radical leftist extremist traitors and quislings ever get tired of trying to deny the obvious reality all around you?
suprisingly, “little” marco rubio, wrote an excellant senate report. i believe two years ago while either chairman or on senate intelligence committee. very factual, focused and concludes that trump and putin have neferious mingled plans.
crickets from fox, oann or other fith columist reporting organizations. find it, read it, be scared. anti americans have infested the empty brain cavites left by right wing media
wake up, goldwater and joe mccarthy told you they were coming. GOP is destroying the Constitution everyday. even goofy ron wouldnt recognize your party anymore.
general ripper was right, your “precious bodily fluids” have been polluted
Outstanding report, but,…………1200 days late and $30 million dollars short.
