Winners of the 2018 Pulitzer Prizes were announced at Columbia University in New York City on Monday. The Pulitzers are highly revered and mark the best in journalism in 14 categories. Neil Brown, Poynter´s president, is a member of the Pulitzer Prize board. While he said he can’t discuss last week´s deliberations, he offered: “It’s clear that good reporting by one newsroom helps generate even more good journalism by others. We need more reporters working on stories to bring matters to light, and in doing so that puts more power in the hands of citizens. "Journalism is not optional in a democracy and

As usual most awards went to NY Times and Wapo so Pulitzer should be renamed Fake News awards.

The prize has become a beauty contest for liberalism since Columbia University says who wins and for what.

Award for the NYT, was expected as is the shameless hypocrisy behind it. The Times had known for years what the slimeball Winestein was up to. But never uttered a word as he was a confidant and buddy of Bonnie and Clyde. The moment they saw an opportunity to strike at a perceived Trump vulnerability, they threw him under the bus. This is risible yellow journalism. People who laud and reward such practice are even more despicable.

One award went for reporting on the HEROIN epidemic (not opiod epidemic.)
One award went to reporting on ´brutal´ war on drugs in the Philippines.
Is there any sense of irony there??
I consider the Pulitzer to be as valuable as the Nobel peace prize.

What? No awards for Pro-abortion, none for Black Live matter issues? None for media assaults on Christian businesses? None for "A week with ANTIFA thugs? No journal;ism awards for investigating "Hunger" in America. Where are the Global Warming awards?

What are the Pulitzers coming to- Just anti-Trump, anti-gun and "The Plight of Women in a hated Male world"? That´s pretty chicken of them.

I only clicked her to read your comments. If you want good, neutral professional news, I recommend The Epoch Times. Yes, it´s supportive of the Falun Gong movement but you won´t find more detailed and behind-the-scenes articles on China. And they have been doing excellent series of articles on the opioid crisis and the southern border and illegals, and MS-13.

The tabloid news company American Media Inc. agreed to let a former Playboy model out of a contract that had kept her from talking freely about an alleged affair with Donald J. Trump. The settlement agreement, reached on Wednesday, ends a lawsuit brought by the model, Karen McDougal, and protects the president from being drawn into a legal case involving efforts to buy the silence of women who had stories to tell about him during the 2016 campaign. He still faces another lawsuit from Stephanie Clifford, the pornographic film actress known as Stormy Daniels. Ms. Clifford is suing to get out of

Starbucks will close 8,000 of its company-owned stores in the U.S. on May 29 for one afternoon to make its employees undergo “racial bias training.” The company said that 175,000 workers would receive this training, which former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder and other experts would have a hand in designing, CNN Money reported. Other experts responsible for designing the training include executives from progressive think tank Demos, the Equal Justice Initiative, NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund President Sherrilyn Ifill, and Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt. These experts would also be responsible for judging the training’s effectiveness.

The phone calls between President Trump and Sean Hannity come early in the morning or late at night, after the Fox News host goes off the air. They discuss ideas for Hannity’s show, Trump’s frustration with the ongoing special counsel probe and even, at times, what the president should tweet, according to people familiar with the conversations. When he’s off the phone, Trump is known to cite Hannity when he talks with White House advisers. The revelation this week that the two men share an attorney is just the latest sign of how Hannity is intertwined with Trump’s world — an

Pompeo has been communicating with North Korean representatives through a diplomatic channel that runs between the CIA and its North Korean counterpart, the Reconnaissance General Bureau, according to The New York Times. President Trump on Tuesday hinted at the meeting. Speaking to reporters at Mar-a-Lago, Trump said

President Donald Trump gave approval last week for rolling out airstrikes in Syria as well as new sanctions on Russia, according to three senior administration officials — but U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley wasn’t briefed on changes to the sanctions plan before announcing it Sunday on national television. The episode marks the latest instance of members of Trump’s team appearing out of sync with one another or with the president on foreign affairs. “Russia sanctions were a part of the agreed-upon plan going into the strike and going into the weekend,” said a senior administration official. “As recently

More than two-thirds of all Americans (68 percent) use Facebook. YouTube is pushing out TV as the most popular place to watch video. Google is the No. 1 search engine in both the U.S. and the world.

New York Times reporter Amy Chozick has a new book on Hillary Clinton and the 2016 election, and one anecdote in particular from it was getting attention on Friday. It's from election night, when Chozick writes in Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling that it finally became clear somebody had to break the news to Clinton that she was going to lose to Donald Trump. The task fell to "Robby Mook, the drained and deflated campaign manager," per an excerpt in the Times. And when he finally did so, Clinton "didn't seem all that surprised," writes Chozick. Then the key Clinton quote: "'I knew it. I knew this would happen to me,' she said, now within

The U.S. Geological Survey said in a report called the "HayWired Scenario" that a magnitude 7.0 earthquake on Hayward Fault located under Oakland could kill as many as 800 people and injure up to 18,000. “This fault is what we sort of call a tectonic time bomb,” USGS earthquake geologist emeritus David Schwartz told the Los Angeles Times. “It’s just waiting to go off.” Researches said the Hayward Fault is dangerous because it runs through

I’m talking about Adrian Abramovitch. Chances are, you’ve never heard of Abramovitch, but even so, I am confident that — along with me and Sen. Tester — you don’t like him!

WASHINGTON — For once, President Donald Trump is opting to go smaller. The president who delights in bigness — of his buildings, his crowd sizes, his hands — is opting for a slimmed-down affair when he hosts French President Emmanuel Macron for his first state dinner on Tuesday. Gone are the President Barack Obama-era days of outside event-planning firms and tents set up on the South Lawn to accommodate guest lists of more than 350. Like President George W. Bush, Trump will host the event in the State Dining Room, with a guest list close to 150. But unlike his predecessors, Trump hasn’t

Planned Parenthood is once again proving its hunger for powerful allies in government positions. GOP control of the Senate is narrow, and with the upcoming Senate races, the power balance could tip in favor of Democrat, pro-abortion advocates. Planned Parenthood knows this, of course, and will be pouring a reported $30 million into abortion advocacy through its political arm. This money will be spent on Senate and gubernatorial races in a number of states, including Arizona, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, and will be used to fund TV and digital ads, direct-mail campaigns, and even advocacy in the public square.
