"Today, the US media has the lowest credibility — 26 percent — among forty-six nations, according to a 2022 study by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism. In 2021, 83 percent of Americans saw “fake news” as a “problem,” and 56 percent — mostly Republicans and independents — agreed that the media were “truly the enemy of the American people,” according to Rasmussen Reports."

Imagine, we have "the lowest [media] credibility -- 26 percent -- among forty-six nations." Given the refusal of the Pulitzer committee to demand the return of the awards bestowed on the Times and The Washington Post for its "fake news" alleging false ties between President Trump and the Russians, the committee and the award recipients likely are proud of their low credibility standing among the American people.

(Please respond to the LPR Poll on renaming the Pulitzer awards.)

And 56 percent of Americans are "agreed that the media [are] 'truly the enemy of the American people.'..."
