Snowden And Team Get Top ‘Journalism’ Award

From the Politico:

Snowden leaks honored by Polk Awards

By HADAS GOLD | February 17, 2014

Glenn Greenwald and The Washington Post’s Barton Gellman are among those who will receive George Polk Awards for their reporting on the Edward Snowden documents, Long Island University announced Sunday.

The Guardian’s Laura Poitras and Ewen MacAskill will also be honored for their reporting on Snowden’s National Security Agency leaks.

Laura Poitras is actually a rabidly anti-American ‘documentary’ film maker, turned ‘journalist.’ She was obsessed with destroying the US’s intelligence agencies even before she hooked up with Snowden.

In fact, Snowden has admitted that he contacted Ms. Poitras back in January of 2013, before he even went to work for Booz-Allen in April of 2013.

The award for national reporting will go to the Post’s Eli Saslow, for his work on poverty and food stamps –

Food stamps, you say.

[W]hile his colleagues Rosalind Helderman, Laura Vozzella and Carol Leonnig will be honored for political reporting and their investigation into the gift controversy involving former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell.

Shawn Boburg of the Bergen Record in New Jersey will be awarded for his reporting on the George Washington Bridge lane closures in Fort Lee that have embroiled Gov. Chris Christie in a scandal.

What a coincidence that two ‘journalists’ who targeted popular Republican governors who might run for the Presidency got awards.

The New York Times will receive three Polk awards, among them one for Andrea Elliot’s expansive "Invisible Child" piece on a young homeless girl.

The homeless, you say. (And never mind that New York City already spends more than $1 billion dollars a year on the homeless.)

The team behind the PBS documentary "A League of Denial," about the NFL’s efforts to quash evidence linking head injuries suffered by players to brain disease, will also be honored…

Naturally.

Note how all of the award winners announced here (this is not the complete list) just happened to help the Democrat agenda. Meanwhile, the reporting on Benghazi, the IRS targeting of the Tea Party and even journalists, and Obama’s other scandals didn’t warrant any recognition. Why is that do you think?

    Theoretical question. Would Bernstein and Woodward have lifted a finger if Nixon had been a Democrat?

    Something tells me Watergate never would have happened and Jerry Ford never would have been president and neither would have Carter.

      I too have been thinking how frivolous Watergate looks now. Liberal media recently reported there were less homeless under Nixon than any other president to include Obama.
