Jeffrey Meyer devotes a Dec. 28 NewsBusters post to complaining about "Al Sharpton's 'Revvie Awards' where Democrats were honored and Republicans skewered for an hour on Wednesday night." He goes on to grouse: "Plenty of ridiculous titles were heaped on Republicans, including the 'This Dud's For You' award, the 'Empty Chair' award, and the 'Blueberry Pie Lifetime Achievement' award."
Meyer has apparently never read his employer's website, which includes the following categories for its year-end "Awards for the Year's Worst Reporting":
- The Throwing Granny Off a Cliff Award
- The Obamagasm Award
- The Ku Klux Con Job Award
- Let Us Fluff Your Pillow Award
- The Audacity of Dopes Award
- The Barbra Streisand Political IQ Award for Celebrity Vapidity
Are those really any less ridiculous than what Sharpton came up with? In fact, one could say that Sharpton was taking notes on award names from the MRC.
Perhaps Meyer can do a comparison of the two and inform us which is the more riduclous.
