The staffs of the New York Times and the Washington Post jointly shared the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for “a distinguished example of reporting on national affairs, using any available journalistic tool.”

The Pulitzer committee awarded the prize to the Post and the Times, according to their website:

‘For deeply sourced, relentlessly reported coverage in the public interest that dramatically furthered the nation’s understanding of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and its connections to the Trump campaign, the President-elect’s transition team and his eventual administration.’

Now that the four page Barr letter has been released, Trump is spinning it like a top, trying to convince people that  “does not exonerate” mean “completely exonerates.”

Fortunately, not many people are gullible enough to believe that day is night and night is day:

Saturday, Trump decided to attack the factual reporting of his behavior as “Fake News,” yet again, tweeting:

‘So funny that The New York Times & The Washington Post got a Pulitzer Prize for their coverage (100% NEGATIVE and FAKE!) of Collusion with Russia – And there was No Collusion! So, they were either duped or corrupt? In any event, their prizes should be taken away by the Committee!’

The Times wasted no time firing back with:

‘We’re proud of our Pulitzer-prize winning reporting on Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election. Every @nytimes article cited has proven accurate.’
