MRC To Honor Limbaugh
Topic: Media Research Center

So the Media Research Center is going to give its inaugural "William F. Buckley, Jr. Award for Media Excellence" to Rush Limbaugh. A few things come to mind:

1) Are repeating misleading claims, making misogynistic and racist statements and smearing people really the MRC's idea of "media excellence"?

2) Apparently so; also appearing at the 20th Anniversary Gala at which Limbaugh will receive his award is Ann Coulter, just a few weeks after most people (but not the MRC) criticized Coulter for calling John Edwards a "faggot."

3) How does William F. Buckley -- whose demeanor is the polar opposite of Limbaugh's -- feel about someone like Limbaugh being honored in his name?
