In 1932, Walter Duranty received a Pulitzer Prize for a series of reports about Stalin & the Soviet Union, most published in 1931. He was criticized then by British journalists Malcolm Muggeridge & Gareth Jones, and later, in books by Robert Conquest & S.J. Taylor, for his denial of widespread famine in the USSR — most particularly the Holodomor, a mass starvation and genocide in Ukraine. We delve into Duranty's coverage of the famine and his false reporting to the New York Times. We also examine the integrity of today's media journalists in a one-on-one interview with James Agresti, president of JustFacts.com, a resource for independent thinkers.
