We're not surprised PolitiFact failed to win a Pulitzer Prize in 2018.
The Pulitzer it won back in 2009 was a bit of a fluke to begin with, stemming from prize submissions in the public service category and arbitrarily used by the Pulitzer board to justify the prize for "National Reporting."
Since the win in 2009, PolitiFact has won exactly the same number of Pulitzer Prizes that PolitiFact Bias has won: Zero.
So, no, we're not surprised. But we think Hitler might be, judging from his reaction when PolitiFact failed to win a Pulitzer back in 2014.
