Possible tie between journalism and reality

The New York Times bragged that it shared a Pulitzer with the Washington Post "for coverage that unearthed possible ties between Russia and President Trump's inner circle."

By unearthed they mean published Bobby Mueller's leaks designed to coerce innocent men to plea bargain to crimes they did not commit. Did no one see "Absence of Malice"? It wasn't supposed to be instructional material.


Possible ties.

Is that like the ascots Fred wore on "Scooby Doo"?

Last year, they gave this Pulitzer to the guy who broke the Billy Bush tape story. Hillary later regretted the timing of her campaign's leak.

Let's call this "national reporting" award what it really is: Best Use of Democratic Party Opposition Research.

There are no ties to Russia and President Trump's inner circle. Business deals in the past? Irrelevant. It has nothing to do with now.

But what about Carlos Slim's possible ties to the drug cartels in Mexico?

Sure, they use his cellphones. Why not speculate about that?

Giving Pulitzers to partisans for publishing Democratic Party lies sets a new standard for American journalism.

Lower than whale feces.

  2. Any possible ties between the mainstream media and reality are illusions. If they persist, please read Don Surber's columns for a few days and they should dissipate like the mirages they are. -- BJ54

  4. Publishing leaks does not make you a journalist. It makes you a stenographer.

  7. Let’s keep in mind they awarded a Pulitzer to Kendrick Lamar for his rap albums “Damn”...one might say they’re being consistent
