At the risk of sounding like a liberal, the Washington Post newsroom looks really white, doesn’t it? In case you missed it, they handed out the Pulitzer Prizes today, and the Post scored one in the “Public Service” category for its coverage of the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6. Frankly, we’re surprised they didn’t refer to it as the “insurrection,” but they’ll probably correct that later.
Congratulations to my amazing colleagues at @washingtonpost on winning the @PulitzerPrizes in Public Service for their account of the attack on the US Capitol on January 6. 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 pic.twitter.com/hGHti7zhxG

They gave themselves awards for the Russian Collusion hoax as well. American Pravda folks.
Just a reminder that they hate you. And will knowingly lie and push half-truths and falsehoods in order to keep their party in power. https://t.co/tJlELCKht9

Working as a reporter for about a decade, I came to regard journalists as the most self-congratulatory group of dilettantes you'll come across. https://t.co/rezPKFsvQE

No kidding … did you hear about the heroic account of CNN’s Jim Acosta pushing an elevator button for an Afghan refugee? Next year, maybe.
This is basically like that time that Obama won a Nobel Prize for doing absolutely nothing other than existing.

This is like when Obama got a Nobel Peace Prize while simultaneously drone bombing everything that moved in the Middle East.
These awards are pointless circlejerks.

Nice participation trophy, I would imagine most of your staff is used to that feeling.

What about those pipe bombs?
Did you return the ones for Russiagate yet? Asking for a friend.

This is as pathetic as the murderous Cuomo getting an Emmy award for handing out death sentences in those nursing homes

We can’t tell from our post whether the Washington Post reported on the first January 6 sentencing of that grandmother who pleaded guilty to parading in a Capitol building. Is the Post even covering all of those arrested?
