NYT Wins Pulitzer for 1619's Historical Farce The racial revisionism of the Times's 1619 Project gets far too many accolades

In Response To: Pulitzer Prize to New York Times Essay Falsely Claiming American Revolution Was Fought to Preserve Slavery :-) (RumorMail)

I'm sure it had nothing to do with White men who wanted to be free of the oppression and servitude they experienced in Ireland, Scotland, the UK and Europe... :-)

************************

Nikole Hannah-Jones of The New York Times won a Pulitzer Prize for Commentary Monday for being the top mind behind the paper’s ugly revisionist history of America, the 1619 Project. This collection of essays about the (alleged) African American experience in America attempts to paint a picture of a nation founded on slavery and dominated by racism to this day. Obviously, like the Nobel Prize, Pulitzers have lost their luster. They’re nothing more than insider political affirmation. Thus, the Times was a shoe-in for this propaganda, not because it “adheres to the highest journalistic principles,” but because it checks all the right “social justice” boxes.

Hannah-Jones and the Times packaged the scheme as a new look at history, but it was an unabashed attempt to maliciously portray America as fundamentally racist to its core. It was drenched in leftist sentiment, proceeded from a false premise, and was riddled with historical errors. But its shortcomings didn’t matter to the paper’s editorial board — nor to the Pulitzer committee. Embracing the “woke” culture, the Times cast journalistic ethics to the wayside in favor of pushing its leftist political agenda. The 1619 Project perpetuates a culture of victimhood in the African American community by claiming that life for blacks in America is still predetermined by slavery and Jim Crow.

Despite the protests of many respected historians from all areas of academia, the paper and Hannah-Jones stood by their work. Sadly, it paid off. Since the 1619 Project launch last year, thousands of public schools have included it in their curriculum, turning over children’s education to a newspaper that is run, read, and loved by the Left.

Accolades from like-minded members of the media have also been heaped on the 1619 Project. Before winning her Pulitzer, Hannah-Jones received a “special award” earlier this year at the annual George Polk Awards in Journalism.

The Polk Awards are well known within journalism circles, but basically anyone who reads knows what the Pulitzer Prize means. It’s widely accepted as the seal of approval for the published written word. Many esteemed journalists have won Pulitzers for fantastic work in the past. Unfortunately, like many intellectual institutions, the Pulitzers have been absorbed and corrupted by leftists. Pulitzer Prizes these days are frequently given to those who carry the ideological torch for identity politics, big government, the end of capitalism, and other “woke” causes. So, while it should be unbelievable that Hannah-Jones won a Pulitzer, it’s totally believable.

There was a point briefly where it seemed as if the Times might finally buckle under the weight of criticism over its historical fiction. Now, that will never happen with a Pulitzer on the shelf. In fact, schools will feel vindicated in choosing to embrace the Times’s disinformation scheme, and the editorial team behind the whole farce will double down on intellectual dishonesty.

With the 1619 Project, The New York Times has once again pitched aside journalistic integrity and honesty, choosing to go a blatantly partisan route. The worst part is that the paper is still trying to convince us that this is journalism. Well, journalism isn’t what it used to be. And apparently, neither is the Pulitzer Prize.
