Media Research Center has released the 2008 winners of Best Notable Quotables: The Annual Awards for the Year’s Worst Reporting. I’m sure you’ll recognize the overall winner, but the following is my favorite:
“Some princes are born in palaces. Some are born in mangers. But a few are born in the imagination, out of scraps of history and hope….Barack Hussein Obama did not win because of the color of his skin. Nor did he win in spite of it. He won because at a very dangerous moment in the life of a still young country, more people than have ever spoken before came together to try to save it. And that was a victory all its own.”
— Time’s Nancy Gibbs, Nov. 17 cover story.
Not surprisingly, this won the Obamagasm category.
Be sure to dig through the list; there are some gems in there.
