This Year’s Pulitzer Prize Award Has An Anti-Russian Infowar Agenda

Andrew Korybko
The Pulitzer Prize Board awarded its eponymous prize for “International Reporting” to The New York Times “for a set of enthralling stories, reported at great risk, exposing the predations of Vladimir Putin’s regime”, which not only further discredited the so-called “Fourth Estate”, but also stands as proof that it harbors an anti-Russian infowar agenda.

The Russian Embassy in the US condemned the Pulitzer Prize Board’s awarding of its eponymous prize for “International Reporting” to The New York Times “for a set of enthralling stories, reported at great risk, exposing the predations of Vladimir Putin’s regime”, describing it as:

a wonderful collection of undiluted Russophobic fabrications, which can be studied as a guideline on creating false facts.”

The six articles and two videos that were responsible for the outlet receiving that “recognition” shared the theme of military-intelligence intrigue, be it accusing the country’s GRU intelligence agency of involvement in several shadowy assassination attempts across Europe or claiming that businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin had a hidden hand in election meddling in Madagascar, for example.

Other assertions that were made by the “journalistic” pieces in question also include the Russian state’s complicity in carrying out war crimes in Syria.

As has become the norm in the Western Mainstream Media’s reporting about Russia, an abundance of unnamed sources, fabricated recordings, and disreputable sources were relied upon to push fearmongering narratives about the Eurasian Great Power.

The conclusions that were reached – or rather, “reverse-engineered” after first determining the meta-narrative and then subsequently fleshing it out from a variety of geopolitical angles – were predictable enough because they perfectly conformed to the “politically correct” interpretation of President Putin’s global intentions.

It’s for that reason The New York Times’ pieces were “celebrated” by the Pulitzer Prize Board with this supposedly “distinguished” award in an attempt to “legitimize” them for posterity. The Russian Embassy in the US, therefore, did the right thing by condemning this charade as Russophobic and describing The New York Times’ work as “a guideline on creating false facts.”

That said, the success of the Pulitzer Prize Board’s efforts to manage global perceptions about Russia as part of the West’s ongoing Hybrid War against it is dependent on whether their targeted audience even cares about what that institution says.

In theory, the Pulitzer Prize is supposed to be one of the most distinguished awards that any journalist or outlet can ever receive, but it’s actually more akin to an elite club commending its own members.

To explain, the Pulitzer Prize Board counts among its ranks representatives from The Washington Post and even The New York Times itself. It also includes other professionals as well, such as those from Bloomberg, National Public Radio, and a few folks from academia.

Prior to Trump’s rise, these figures might have been almost universally respected, but the American President has since opened the eyes of a broad swath of the country and even the world more broadly to the so-called “Fourth Estate’s” insidious political agendas.

Trust in traditional media is dwindling by the day, meaning that the awards ceremonies that they preside over are becoming similarly less prestigious as well. This holds true for the Pulitzer Prize, which is only meaningful insomuch as someone respects the “Fourth Estate”, the Pulitzer Prize institution itself, and the latter’s particular members of the board.

It can be argued that a considerable proportion of people don’t care all that much for any of them anymore, which further diminishes the soft power sway that they hold over the population.

In fact, it can even be said that their awarding of the Pulitzer Prize for “International Reporting” to The New York Times for its blatantly obvious infowar attacks against Russia actually erodes whatever “credibility” those said pieces might have previously held among some of their targeted audience since it’s natural to suspect them of having a political agenda nowadays that secretly influenced their decision.

That’s precisely the problem with any journalistic award given to a piece that even remotely has any relevance in the political sphere since it’s all but impossible to convince the public that it was independently decided for purely apolitical reasons.

This is especially so in the context of the ongoing New Cold War, the US’ “deep state” divisions, and the active efforts of the latter’s media surrogates to undermine Trump’s promised “New Detente” with Russia over the past few years.

Interestingly the US and Russia made some unexpected progress on improving their relations last month after Moscow urgently dispatched counter-COVID aid to America and their leaders closely cooperated to revive OPEC+, making one wonder whether the “Fourth Estate’s” attempt to “legitimize” their anti-Russian fearmongering narratives might have also been partially intended to offset this positive development.

Looking forward and keeping in mind the Pulitzer Prize Board’s adherence to the top fearmongering narrative of the past year, it’s entirely predictable that next year’s winner of the “International Reporting” award might have something to do with disparaging China in a similar fake news-driven manner as they did with Russia.

Of course, that also depends on whatever else happens across the next 12 months since it’s entirely possible that the Russiagate narrative might once again be resurrected ahead of the November elections, especially in the event that Trump is re-elected.

Nevertheless, the takeaway is that the Pulitzer Prize and other similar ones awarded to those whose work is even remotely political can’t be said to have been decided independently since they’re inextricably connected to the “Fourth Estate’s” “politically correct” considerations.

For this reason, they shouldn’t be taken seriously by any objective observers and should continually be called out for what they are.

I want to blurt out that it’s hard to believe that any thinking adult would have anything but contempt and derision for these supposedly prestigious Establishment awards.

I mean, it’s true enough, but perhaps “thinking” needs to be qualified with “perspicacious” or “discerning”. The would-be Western intelligentsia thinks they’re “thinkers”, but their kind of thinking is more along the lines of conformist “groupthinking”.

The Pulitzer and Nobel Prizes are to the vaunted intelligentsia what the Oscars, Grammys, and Golden Globe awards are to the Hollywood/entertainment industry proletarian thralls– vacuous, pretentious “Bread and Circuses” glamor and glitter for the skyboxes.

Ah the latest “Poultry Prizes” handed down by the Elite Media including NpR, the Official Liberal Tranquilizer, to its very own “scribes” for what appears to be their plagiarism of previously published work by investigative “liberal, anti-Putin Russian journalists” as revealed by Ben Norton of The Grayzone Project, one of our few “gold standard” alternate media sites because it’s still seeking to find & publish the ever elusive Truth: https://thegrayzone.com/2020/05/08/russian-journalists-ny-times-stealing-story-pulitzer/.
But what can one expect from the NYTimes with its “World-Renowned Columnist”, Thomas Friedman, winner of 3 “Poultry Prizes” before serving as “Cheerleader in Chief” for the Invasion of Iraq? And after the late, great media critic, Edward S. Herman’s documentation of the NYTimes’ 100 years of anti-Russian propaganda: “Fake News on Russia and Other Official Enemies: The New York Times, 1917-2017” 7/1/2017 by Monthly Review.
So many layers of lies to cover The Plutocracy’s imperial crimes: we’re truly deep into the “Bread & Circuses” stage of The (fast-falling) Empire now…except that, no thanks to the CV-19 Hoax…there’s now less and less Bread (& toilet paper) for the more and more Unemployed!

The facts of Flynn’s setting-up have been known for years, yet only now has it been admitted by the laughably misnamed ‘Department of Justice’. Yet the LUNATICS at CNN, MSNBC refuse to face facts even now, making the psychopaths at FoxNews look sane. As for the methods used, these are Standard Operating Procedure if a victim is a Palestinian American running a charity, or a ‘terrorwist’ set up by an FBI provocateur.

The lie machine NY Times falsely reported today:

Tompkins County, NY has 24 COVID fatalities and is #1 in the country for “highest average daily growth rate of deaths.”

The ACTUAL figures as of 5/7/2020 7:30 PM in Tompkins County are:

Total tested: 4,587
Total Positive Results: 134
Total Negative Results: 4,102
Total Deaths From Tompkins County: 0

They kind of got it just a wee bit little wrong eh? This is an indicator species of the accuracy and overall credibility of the “paper of record.”

Tompkins County is in Upstate NY, where Ithaca, NY is located, where Ithaca College and Cornell University are located.

In 1932 the NYT won a Pulitzer for propagandizing for Stalin, hiding the man-made famine that followed the extermination of the most skilled Russian and Ukrainian peasants. The NYT’s Walter Duranty shared the Pulitzer for painting a positive picture of the banker-backed Bolshevik seizure of Russia.
Ninety years later the NYT wins a Pulitzer for its unrelenting demonization of Russia given the failure of the U.S. banker-backed attempts to seize control of Russia after the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union.
At least the NYT is consistent in its service to the bankers and their unintelligence lackeys.

Guys Putin is a nasty piece of work. We dont need to speculate, we know. I have no doubt Russia tried to influence US election, the hacking of the DNC email conversation re Sanders was damaging to Hilary. Was it enough to swing the election for Trump. I have no idea but i’m inclined to doubt it.

So while i think the focus on Putin somewhat over egged by Democrats who now see Russian interference around every corner, thereby sustaining the anti Putin narrative; whether Trump supporters or not, being apologists for Putin, is no different than Dems recently making apologies for China and WHO, to berate Trump.

This binary equation nonsense is very destructive, it appeals to the ends justify the means paradigm. That can lead people to quite nasty types of behaviour.

The DNC hack was real. the emails were released to public, now maybe it was an inside job, but that is still hacking of a sort, even if as you seem to be inclined to not beleive Russia was involved. Why wouldn’t Putin want to interfere in US elections? hed be the first Russian or Soviet president who didnt.
It seems pretty obvious to me that Putin would if he could. Russia has its self interests at heart. Are all the international hit jobs carried out by Russia a fiction? Polonium in London etc….is all that false flag?

United Sates openly interfered in UK brexit referendum, with Obama’s implied threat re trade..interference on elections takes many forms. But they all interfere with eachother. So it is rather naive to think otherwise.

You see this is why i travel alone re the warring sides, you are all losing perspective.

You prove nothing by conflating Obama with Putin, though that would make for lively cocktail talk. There is no evidence the DNC hack had anything to do with Russia – and even less that it served Russian purposes. On the contrary, the Democratic Party was at war with itself and Seth Rich paid the price.
Not even Foreign Policy magazine dares to contend that Putin “preferred” Trump over the Clintstones. There simply is no evidence and even less logic.
Polonium – yawn. It’s like Novichock. You have to pick it up and smell it to guess cui bono. Would you take all the heat of an international scandal to eliminate some nobody? Would you kill a fading opposition leader like Boris Nemtsov in view of your own office? Sure, in a third-rate spy novel. And that is exactly what the British unintelligent services do.

Mi6 creates the Russian bogeyman because Britain can only punch above its weight against ghosts. It needs imaginary foes.

Mi-sicks have a work in progress. It is called, Russia: The Third Rate Spy Novel. Written by third-rate hacks like Luke Harding, so much of an expert he can’t even speak Russian. I don’t take it seriously and nor should you.

Ive answered this reply but its not showing here. have no idea why. The Obama attempt to blackmail UK population was an example that even this sort of public interference takes place. I was not claiming it was like for like.

The DNC email saga most certainly damaged the Dems, especially Hilary, and rightly so. There was a massive furore. Who else did it benefit other than Trump?

Would Russia order a hit if they KNEW they would cause international heat. No, but if they thought using polonium a rather novel way to murder someone, would be undetectable they yes. Otherwise they would just gun him down. Why use Polonium unless you want to avoid detection? That was lightly circular reasoning.

So we have British secret service running around poisoning Russians and other assorted bystanders so Uk can punch above it weight. That to me sounds far more far fetched than Putin trying to interfere and stir the pot re US elections.

From Craig Murray’s blog:

“During a visit to Washington in September 2016 which has become somewhat infamous, for fun I entered an establishment of low repute and spent an afternoon giving out free flash drives with my tips to various young ladies and barmen, just to give the FBI lots of particularly wild geese to chase. I have wondered occasionally whether subsequent embarrassment is connected to Robert Mueller’s lack of desire to accept my evidence. (If you have no idea what I am talking about do not worry, you haven’t missed much and just skip this para).”

Putin is a successful politician with many achievements to his credit.
He probably has his faults and less savoury characteristics, like all politicians.
If he doesn’t, he’s the only politician on the planet who doesn’t.
Like all foreign leaders who fail to kowtow to the kosher elite in Washington, he is endlessly vilified and demonised by the bought and paid for whores in the MSM.

The Russian gate serves a domestic agenda far better than it does their international agenda, that is why the US are, as you point out, often engaging with Russia in a positive way.
Like me, you probably expecting ‘the left’ or the press to peruse Trump’s many crimes highlighted during the election campaign. This did not happen, instead the press and the democratic party hijacked any interest that there might have been in Trump’s illegality or Trumps abuses of power into the dead-end Russia-gate pantomime.

This served the ‘political opposition’ as much as it served trump. It keeps his real criminal activities and abuses of power, which the Democrats are also very keen on maintaining, away from public scrutiny and it removed the need for the democrats to provide policy alternatives to Trump’s massive tax cuts, military spending and deregulation, which the democrats secretly buy into.
The Democrats don’t want to offer the population popular policies that affect their donors and have crushed anything that remotely resembles help for the working population contained in the Bernie Sander’s campaign.

So rather than earn the popularity of the voters the Democrats would simply say trump is worse than us, but in a way which was ultimately self defeating and resulted in trump looking better than them. Trump has been such a boom for Democratic sponsors I doubt they are even interested in removing Trump now.
Russia gate also meant they were not forced into prosecuting trump for crimes, that they themselves are fully engaged in. Hunter bidden’s activities in the Ukraine is a very good example, there is not much that Trump is doing that the Democrats haven’t done or plan to do when they get into power.

From day one, I realised Russia-gate was an operation like so many operations in the USA to maintain the illusion of democracy in a one party state, and if that ultimately undermines the institutions of democracy, as it probably has, then that is another win for the deep state and security establishment that underwrites these operations.

According to your theory, they shouldn’t have impeached Trump over Ukraine, because it was Biden’s crime, too. So why did they? (I left out Hillary Uranium One deal with Russia, but you get the point.)

They did impeach him, but they dd not find him guilty of anything I believe because there was no evidence against him. The charge against trump was that he asked for Hunter’s employer to be investigated as a condition of military aid or sales. So an abuse of power.

In covering this case the media exposed the absurdity and corruption of hunters employment at 50,000 a month in an area where he lacked any expertise, clearly as a government gift to Biden.
It also came to light that Biden had used US aid as a way of pressuring the Ukraine to sack a prosecutor who was investigating Hunter Biden’s employer, exactly the same accusation made against Trump.

So my point is, Trump may have been guilty but absurdly so was Biden of exactly the same crime and more. So if the only crime the Democrats chose to prosecute trump for, implicates and exposes themselves for the same or worse crimes, it is clearly never in their interests to pursue him. What are they going to charge him with? tax fraud, insider dealing ? the democrats are deeply in all these areas. Nancy Pelosi gained 100 million dollars whilst in power, how?

The major story about Russiagate is yesterdays capitulation by the DS in dropping the ‘case’ against General Flynn.

I say ‘case’ because it no longer was. The case was over, he was tried and he was found guilty, infact he had ‘confessed'(?), and was awaiting and waiting sentencing- to a real prison.

All because the DS and their media whores and hordes of alt-news/bloggers and btl green monkey troll army had been unleashed the day Hillary lost, to get their way come what may and do whatever it takes!

It means that the very top of the FBI and other 3 letteted agencies committed a criminal conspiracy against Flynn and others. They LIED and CHEATED.

It has been revealed because of one (there aren’t many) of the great things about the American system – it’s ‘modern’ constitution, which allowed many ancient law customs in favour of the Kings to be annulled and made available to all. Even as it is attacked and degraded with newer powers ever since.

There are still lawyers and judges who can deliver justice in the US with tenacity – such as Sidney Powell – what a great lady!

Many of the top spooks and ‘law enforcers’ should be criminally tried and punished, including Flynns previous lawyers who colluded with the DS in getting that untrue ‘confession’. But being election year and Trump the dealmaker …who knows?

So what should interest us in the UK about it?

Well the Russiagate collapse should light up the blowback to our own DS – with the Steele memos, Skripals, Mifsud, Dearlove…the whole rotten bunch. It should expose our media collusion, the integrity iniative and the 77th. It should track it from the Blairites/Cameron’s undeclared wars on Libya/Syria, our part in isis/White Helmets and poison gases of LeMesurier/de Bretton-Gordon. The Syria PR campaign and novichok experts and reporters, the Urbans / Hardings / Elliots of our mainstream and web media.

Most urgently it should mean that Assange ‘case’ must be dropped and he should be immediately released.

But then again we don’t have a constitution.

That is the real news.

The Russiagate stocking and coverage by the NYT and the Clintonites obsession with war and poking Putin, makes that hollow award the sham it is. (Like the Nobles).

If there was a ‘pulitzer prize’ for alt news – Off-G may well deserve to be on a short list.

More entertainment than reality me thinks. The FBI were crucial to Trump electoral victory. They effectively declared Hilary Clinton a criminal in the weeks leading up to the voting period and their agency have, like the military, been showered with gifts both civil-rights-breaking and financial since Trump’s election.

I have no idea why you are lying but, at the start of the voting period in the US, Comey declared that Clinton was under investigation, effectively declaring her a criminal, just in time for everyone to vote for Trump, whilst withholding any statements about trump. They clearly helped him and were rewarded for it.

I know there are a lot of people who want to hide that FACT, you lie if you want to, but I will tell it exactly as it happened.

As a result, although the Department of Justice makes final decisions on matters like this, we are expressing to Justice our view that no charges are appropriate in this case.

”Hillary Clinton on Saturday cast blame for her surprise election loss on the announcement by the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, days before the election that he had revived the inquiry into her use of a private email server.” Nov. 12, 2016

And she was right the FBI did swing the election for trump. The election was in November, you really are the most disgusting liar.

I understand me saying this underlines the US security agencies conspiracy to get trump elected, which is totally contrary to the fantasy being fed to the public, that he was at odds with the CIA and FBI.

Ok jj using YOUR NYT (ahem) whinging AFTER the election.

Mrs. Clinton said a second letter from Mr. Comey, clearing her once again, which came two days before Election Day, had been even more damaging. In that letter, Mr. Comey said an examination of a new trove of emails, which had been found on the computer of Anthony D. Weiner, the estranged husband of one of her top aides, had not caused him to change his earlier conclusion that Mrs. Clinton should face no charges over her handling of classified information.

Pay special attention to that last sentence. 2 days before ? Most people make their minds up before.

And this

The F.B.I.’s examination of the new emails did not in fact reopen the investigation.

And i see that there is no mentions of Russian interference. You know the one that both Hills and FBI made up after that instant blame meme failed.

She lost it. Because she was crap at campaigning. Even in a choreographed pantomime with a pussy grabbing villain to knock down. I watched her campaign – stride out on stage in her trademark pant suit, point and smile at someone random. Give a wave. Wobble back into the car. With help. Yeah reeeeal charasmatic.

Mrs. Clinton’s instinct to shun any personal responsibility angered some Democrats. Several donors on the call, while deeply bitter about Mr. Comey’s actions, said they believed that Mrs. Clinton and her campaign had suffered avoidable missteps that handed the election to an unacceptable opponent.

Excuses excuses .. no it was FBI and ever since it was PUTIN , lol the lying liars are obvious. It ain’t me. It is just another excuse for you now the russiagate is busted too.

I understand your pain. Cry. Cry a bit more. Let it out. No one left to blame except herself now, is there?

In theory, the Pulitzer Prize is supposed to be one of the most distinguished awards that any journalist or outlet can ever receive, but it’s actually more akin to an elite club commending its own members.

It’s just like the Oscars in Hollywood: it’s an industry celebrating/promoting itself. Lots of insider back-scratching and in-fighting; most of us on the outside remain indifferent.

The the MSM (or minitru in Orwellspeak) is a dream come true for any aspiring psychologist. This absurd fixation with Russia and latterly China is quite deranged. It is, I think, what psychologists/pyschiatrists call ‘projection’ – i.e., falsely accusing others of what you are doing yourself. Thus Russia invaded and meddled in Ukraine. Well what in fact actually happened was American NGOs, including most prominently the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) were openly meddling in Ukraine from the get-go and actually admitted as much. Moreover, US Ambassador Pyatt and the Under Secretary of State for Eurasian and Eastern European affairs, Victoria Nuland (wife by the way of neo-con headbanger Robert Kagan) were openly sympathising with rioters and handing out cookies in Independence Square during the Maidan events. Moreover, both were caught in a telephone conversation about the make up of the next Ukrainian ‘government’. Ah but you see the invisible Russian armoured columns invading Ukraine were perfected by the devious who got the idea from Star Trek. They had carefully studied the Klingons who had invented a cloaking device and operationalised it.

Prior to this was a reinforced NATO’s marching right up to the Russian border installing short and medium range missiles in Poland and Romania and then accusing Russia of aggression! It really is childlike. I just wonder how many of these people actually believe it. I suppose that it comes from living in a bubble among dreams of conquest and power. A condition not far removed from schizophrenia.

How long would ukcolumn be able to continue reporting if it was inside Russia criticising Putin and the Russian government. There freedom and possibly there lives might be rather short.

I agree there is far to much anti-russia propaganda. The hole RussiaGate hoax to bash Trump and stop better relations with Russia.
The west can not report honestly on the war in Syria . We have little honest independent mainstream media.

Then you have the ironically named Integrity initiative and the 77 th Brigade countering Russian Propaganda. In reality producing there own propaganda.

Sadly much of the West’s economy is based on selling weapons around the world in competition with Russia and China. The fact that the USA spends who knows how many trillions on it’s military , making the economic business model of selling weapons way past stupid. But it is really about control. Our evil empire is better than your evil empire.

If I were the new left-wing benign dictator, I would merge MI5 & Mi6 with a much-reduced budget and using one or other of their present buildings, and selling off the other one (or making it a shelter for the homeless, or find some other socially beneficial use for it).

I’d leave them to choose which building to use.

How long? I don’t know and frankly I don’t care. Well being a foreign policy realist more than I care about the internal affairs of Paraguay or Zanzibar. Interfering in the internal affairs of a powerful sovereign state – like Russia – is not a good idea. What I am concerned with is the de facto insane drive by the Anglozionist empire to go to war against Russia. All the human rights bullshit is just to prep up western publics for the ‘righteousness’ of this inane planned conflict. This dangerous meddling with the internal arrangement of a powerful sovereign state on the basis that we must save those poor people ‘whose freedom and possible their lives might be rather short’ is so much sentimental tripe. You don’t like their internal arrangements? Well, perhaps they don’t like yours – so what. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

The self-righteous and sanctimonious bleating of the ‘free-world’ are not only, given their own human rights record, hysterical and hypocritical, but also extremely dangerous.

Is it too much to ask for a sane, non-judgemental foreign policy outlook as outlined in the UN laws?

The Pullitzer Prize is one of a large number of similar prizes that are awarded in the US on a periodic basis.

There is also the Pimp Of The Year Award, where the most successful pimp is chosen and lauded by his peers, usually large flamboyant black men sporting garish outfits.

Or the Best Anal Sex Of The Year Award, where massed ranks of Stormy Daniels types select the lucky winner.

They are all probably of similar importance, though the first is infinitely less entertaining than the others.

My gag reflex was exhausted by the time I was half-way through this. The New York Times – ah yes, the “propaganda of record” – newspaper – literally.

The corruption of Western institutions is complete, total and absolute – from the so called human rights groups like Amnesty and Human Rights Watch, to the OPCW, to quite obviously the Pulitzer committee. In retrospect it appears an act of great foresight that the Nobel committee preemptively awarded Obama his “Peace Prize” – (before) – he starting bombing, and drone killing, and before he overthrew Ukraine and turned Libya into an open slave market. Timing is everything obviously.

If the Pulitzer committee is interested in a good story with a “Russian slant” it might want to ask the NYT’s management if anyone on staff has thought to perhaps ask MI6 where oh where the Skripnals might be?
