ranch dressing, Circle Jerks, filth,

Breitbart was killed by a gay orgy at CPAC?

This would make a good sketch on SNL

As much as I disagree with and disliked Andrew Breitbart, he DID have a huge impact on internet news and blogging, having been Matt Drudge's butt buddy all those years running the Drudge Report.

Shouldn't a person have some integrity before you go naming awards after them? This is nothing more than the right celebrating everything rotten and corrupt in the world of political punditry. I can't even bring myself to calling deadmoran a journalist.

Citizen: The fight for freedom requires a constant stream of new recruits willing to make time in their lives to serve as watchdogs in their local communities. We'll honor an information activist committed to digging up the truth.

Not citizens that serve their community, but watchdogs that "dig up" the truth. The awards committee is going to get physical when they have to decide between James O'Keefe and George Zimmerman.

Can we call these awards "Farties"?

None of which would I call, in the classic sense, journalism.

Unless of course we're talking about yellow journalism, in which case it's entirely appropriate.

No, it is not journalism. Its linking to stories that they find interesting or provocative. They were just one of the very first to do it. They did break the Clinton Lewinsky story though.

I can't stand Breitbart or Drudge but I have to admit that the website they created has had an impact on politics and journalism.

It will be interesting to see who wins "Screechiest Harpy": Michelle Malkin or Ann Coulter?

Lifetime Derpchievement award: Ted Nugent or Chuck Norris?

I just question the type of influence he had. This is a little different than Time's "most influential" thing where both positive and negative influence are considered. I assume this is intended more as an honor than a recognition.

Much like a gallon of gasoline and a lighter would have an impact on a basket full of kittens.

They did not move journalism in a positive direction.

They have categories like "Best selective edit", "Most punchable face", "Most extreme hyperbole", "Best fake statistic"

We already saw this with the track and field scene in "The Dictator."

Life imitating art? I reckon so...

Breitbart awards? Are these going to be like the Razzies?

Looking forward to seeing who wins best video editor.

FTFA: But, outside of that, it's just writing"Obama ate a dawg, hunh hunh hunh" and living on ramen drenched in ranch dressing until one day your lifeless body is found fused to a Naugahyde couch, penis in one hand, Great American Conservative Women calendar in the other.

And of course Brentwood Speedbumps.

That's damn fine writing right there.

The award itself consists of a square of mirrored glass topped with 5 white granular lines running parallel to each other.

A 5 pound hammer into an intelligent person's skull would have an impact too. In fact, the impact would be slightly less negative than what Breitbart did. Maybe we should have the sledgies instead?

I guess this TBogg getting greenlit might explain why his Internet Man Does Not Want To Be On The Google Anymore got the red.

It is about George Tierney of Greenville South Carolina who has been acting like a foul mouthed jerk on the internet, doing such things as Tweeting to Sandra Fluke "when are you going to shut that god damm dick sucker?".

TBogg and others have noted his words of wisdom and now he is threatening legal action unless they remove him from Google.

"You dont get to make the rules. I am the george tierney that made the comments to sandra fluke, not to you..take it off google. If it goes to a lawyer, it will be settled in court, with me getting paid.

Sincerely,

Seriously. Don't seek to prove why Breitbart was a journalistic icon and visionary. "B-b-but MSM and false equivalence!"

I imagine Breitbart dying via Joker handbuzzer from Burton's Batman, with Edward R. Murrow playing Joker and cackling "Glad you're dead, glad you're dead!"
 
2012-05-21 03:25:29 PM  
The author of the crappy blog I just read won't be nominated. I'm guessing it is going to the TownHall idiot that once started out an article with "The dictionary defines...."

LOL, add to that the whole "Hulk: The End" story where Breitbart regenerates so that Ed gets to fry him again the next day.
 
2012-05-21 03:39:56 PM  
Okay, Breitbart & Co are asses, but that blog was an unreadable mess of petty insults against the Breitbart when simply quoting them would have sufficed to establish their idiocy.

"The Heritage Foundation and The Franklin Center want to to recognize Andrew's contribution to journalism, blogging and activism and we're excited to be able to launch The Breitbart awards at the Future of Journalsim (sic) conference in June."

Journalsim?

So vote REPUBLICAN

Actually, that one should be: "Best story that the MSM is NOT ignoring, but that we will make the claim on anyway" there's a bonus sub-award handed out to the person who uses the MOST references to MSM links to source their story about the MSM "ignoring" something.

Jesus Christ, that isn't even the worst quote from the guy.

And the really amazing thing is how classy, measured and appropriate is Fluke's response. She's a far better person than I am; my response to that kind of douchiness would probably be an offer to settle the dispute in person.

A turd in the punchbowl has an impact at a party but I would not start handing out awards named after it or for it .

Breitbart contributed nothing to the political discourse or to society as a whole . He was a self-aggrandizing lying smearing parasite that fabricated stories out of malice for money .

His only use was as a bad example of a human being and contributed nothing unless you count screaming "Stop raping people"!!! at random strangers of some value to human kind then the homeless guy living under the overpass that masturbates in the median to the morning traffic should be held in the same esteem as Breitbart .

Breitbart is dead , I am glad he is dead

The best part ...... Forever
