MRC’s 22nd Annual Award for the Year’s Worst Reporting

The Media Research Center has released its Best Notable Quotables of 2009…

The Media Research Center has released its Best Notable Quotables of 2009: The 22nd Annual Awards for the Year’s Worst Reporting, with Discover magazine deputy web editor Melissa Lafsky taking the top spot for her Quote of the Year about Mary Jo Kopechne, the young woman who was killed in the infamous car accident with Ted Kennedy: 

“Mary Jo wasn’t a right-wing talking point or a negative campaign slogan….We don’t know how much Kennedy was affected by her death, or what she’d have thought about arguably being a catalyst for the most successful Senate career in history….[One wonders what] Mary Jo Kopechne would have had to say about Ted’s death, and what she’d have thought of the life and career that are being (rightfully) heralded. Who knows — maybe she’d feel it was worth it.”

The awards, judged by a 48-member panel that included conservative elites such as Neal Boortz, Cal Thomas, Marvin Olasky, and Kate O’Beirne covered six categories, the full list of which can be found here: www.mrc.org
