MRC Wake-up Call

How better to celebrate Boxing Day than with the Media Research Center annual awards for the year's worst reporting?  This is an hilarious -- and, unfortunately, entirely accurate -- summary of the year's worst media nonsense.  Take the time to read it all, and brace yourselves for the onsluaght in '06.  Hard to see how anyone will be able to top this year's worst: NBC's Brian Williams.  This is the money quote from an exchange he had in June with Andrea Mitchell:

Andrea Mitchell: "It is an iconic picture: American hostages, hands bound and blindfolded, being paraded outside the U.S./>/> embassy in Tehran/>/> by their captors. But has one of those student radicals now become Iran’s newly elected President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?...Tonight, U.S. intelligence officials say that they will continue to study this, but may never have definitive proof of what the role was of Iran’s new president, Brian.

 Brian Williams: "Andrea, what would it all matter if proven true? Someone brought up today the first several U.S./>/> Presidents were certainly revolutionaries and might have been called terrorists at the time by the British Crown, after all."


Mitchell: "Indeed, Brian."
 

Indeed?  In fact? In the fevered brains of the hyperliberal media.  NBC:  we distort, you comply.
