The MRC DisHonors Awards 2006

Thursday evening the Media Research Center held their annual DisHonors Awards at The Grand Hyatt Hotel in Washington, DC. The awards pay tribute to the the most outrageously biased liberal reporting of 2006. The big winners of the evening were Chris Matthews, Rosie O'Donnell, and Ted Turner, plus those in attendance who got to howl in laughter at the idiocy of the nominees.

Go have a look at the whole list of nominees and winners, but I'll leave you with a little taste of the ceremony - The Quote of the Year, as selected by the audience. It pretty much sums up the need for such an event, and why it's a "can't miss" event.


Ted Turner: "I am absolutely convinced that the North Koreans are absolutely sincere. There's really no reason for them to cheat [on nukes]....I looked them right in the eyes. And they looked like they meant the truth. I mean, you know, just because somebody's done something wrong in the past doesn't mean they can't do right in the future or the present. That happens all the, all the time."

Wolf Blitzer: "But this is one of the most despotic regimes and Kim Jong-Il is one of the worst men on Earth. Isn't that a fair assessment?"

Turner: "Well, I didn't get to meet him, but he didn't look - in the pictures that I've seen of him on CNN, he didn't look too much different than most other people I've met."

Blitzer: "But, look at the way, look at the way he's, look at the way he's treating his own people."

Turner: "Well, hey, listen. I saw a lot of people over there. They were thin and they were riding bicycles instead of driving in cars, but-"

Blitzer: "A lot of those people are starving."

Turner: "I didn't see any, I didn't see any brutality...."
