Associated Press Operative Julie Pace Has Won the Duranty-Blair Award for Journalistic Infamy

By Nicholas Stix

At circa 6:42 p.m. tonight, on a panel discussion on Bret Baier’s Fox News show, Julie Pace asserted, regarding the fake “Russia collusion” investigation of Donald Trump, much of whose steam was generated by the discredited “Steele Dossier,” that was fabricated by former MI6 agent Christopher Steele for dirty organization Fusion GPS,
“This investigation does not exist because of this dossier, it exists because there was Russian interference in the election.”
That was a bald-faced lie, and a desperate, hopeless attempt by Pace, who thereby exposed herself as a Democrat dead-ender, at damage control.

“Russian interference” was a re-branded version of Democrats' original big lie, “the Russians hacked the election.” It evokes the leftwing big lie about “global warming,” which after it was debunked, was re-branded to “climate change.”

My earliest recollection of what I eventually dubbed the Russia Game, came before the election, when a CNN talking head claimed that Russia had planted “fake news.”

The investigation exists as an attempt, begun by the John Doe calling himself, “Barack Obama,” and numerous other Democrats, immediately after the election, to undo it.

Obama lied about the Russians “hacking the election,” for which he had never a scintilla of evidence, “Obama” engaged in brinksmanship against Russia that brought us to the verge of World War III, and tied Trump’s hands diplomatically. “Obama” sought either to undo the election, or make Trump’s election a pyrrhic victory. The fake Russia investigation serves the same purpose. “Obama,” the Clintons, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, and their many crime partners should be arrested, prosecuted, convicted and imprisoned. However, I realize that the likelihood is that none of them will be so much as prosecuted.

The Duranty-Blair Award recognizes those journalists whose work embodies the spirit of Walter Duranty and Jayson Blair, two of the most notorious “journalists” in the history of the Fourth Estate. It is no accident that both men worked for the New York Times.

Walter Duranty wrote a series of early 1930s dispatches from the Soviet Union, where he was Times Moscow bureau chief, in which he lied about the Ukrainian Holocaust, in which Stalin deliberately starved millions of Kulaks (farmers) to death, through a man-made famine. Instead of reporting the truth, Duranty reported that the peasants were happy and well-fed, and was rewarded for his lies with a Pulitzer Prize.

Jayson Blair (here, here, and here) was an early 2000s black affirmative action hire, who alternately plagiarized reporters at other newspapers, and fabricated articles out of whole cloth, all for stories set hundreds and even thousands of miles away, while he sat in New York City cafés.

Julie Pace is the third Associated Press opeative to win a Duranty-Blair, following Tom Hays in 2014, and Duncan Mansfield (posthumously) last month.

Previous Duranty-Blair winners are:

CBS News producer Mary Mapes in 2004;

Seven reporters and editors at the New Orleans Times-Picayune in 2006;

ABC News reporter Brian Ross in 2012;

Peter Berger (not the brilliant sociologist), of The American Interest, in 2013;

Associated Press operative Tom Hays, in 2014;

New York Times operative Farhad Manjoo in September, 2016;

CNN’s Symone Sanders (2), Don Lemon, and Kate Bolduan (2), in November 2016;

New York Times Propaganda Officer Francis X. Clines in March 2017;

CNN Activist Jim Sciutto, in May 2017;

Associated Press “Reporter” Duncan Mansfield (posthumous), in September 2017; and

CBS Sports operative Jack Maloney, Chairman Sean McManus, and President David Berson.

Hacking as that word normally understood intrusion into a computer. Presumably in this case for altering vote counts. That has occurred? Never has it been suggested so.

You nailed it! Its so obvious that those in Washington DC are worthy of immediate arrest
for crimes against the American people and conspiracy to deny 50 million people their civil rights as voting citizens. That's just for starters.

And conservatives are well aware that the establishment Republicans are complicit by their inaction.

You get my personal Pulitzer Award for brave and truthful reporting and will donate what I can, for your work.
