This year’s Pulitzer Prizes went to the Wall Street Journal, Associated Press, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post and other mainstream outlets.
The Associated Press won the award for their images of a bombed maternity ward in Ukraine. They reported that Russia bombed this ward even though patients in the hospital contested that and claimed it was attacked by Ukrainian factions. Proof of this was removed from YouTube and content creators who interviewed mothers who were there were given channel strikes including Mike Jones’ channel iEarlGrey who visited the region himself.
So what does a Pulitzer stand for? A media obsessed with itself?
Do not expect to see dissenting voices when you search Google for news. The company has agreed to pay The New York Times approximately $100 million over the next three years to feature the Times content on its platform.
