The Top Prestigious Award in Journalism

Time Warner CNN Swampland always announce the winners in their competitions with an exclamation:

“Now, ladies and gentlemen, we have come to the most prestigious event for this evening, to announce the winner in …. Blah, blah, blah and so forth.”

This year will mark the end of the first decade of the current millennium and we expect a winner in a new competition for the Person of the Decade.  At present Joe Klein leads by more than the proverbial mile.

He is a remarkable writer.  When others battle with research, facts, sources and resources, Joe smirks at everyone and prattles something that only Joe understands.  Joe is a gifted prattler.

See:

Obama’s National Security Strength

“Well, yeah. But we should not underestimate the significance here: Obama is trying to do something far more complicated and sophisticated than Bush–comprehensive diplomacy takes time and great skill,” says Joe the Prattler.

Someone counters with a detailed analysis, quoting resources and facts [they quote North Korea and World reactions, and since, of course, the vagrant NK has sent a few more funny things going BOOM BOOM around the World].  See:

Joe does not reply because he doesn’t have to.  He just steams ahead with:

A Middle Ground on Enemy Combatants by Joe Klein

 And [what a beauty on the Gitmo terrorists?]:

 We’re Not Sending Them to Boss Hogg’s Lock-Up

Time’s regular believers scream at the last one but Joe remains oblivious to their concerns.

Instead he keeps prattling about Obama’s triumphant European tour [for which he has since been named Joe the God Maker because everyone named Joe is being renamed in Obamerica the land of the 58 States] at a time when:

 The Telegraph UK/ VIA Drudge… 30-Love Advantage Obama…He-He-He…British banks revolt against Obama tax plan…British banks and stockbrokers may refuse to take on American clients if new international tax proposals outlined by President Obama are passed.

Recognition for the above reference to my friend and a great Blogger El Campeador at:

On to January of 2010, the Chairman of the Conglomerate having the word:

 “So, Ladies and Gentlemen, on behalf of our great conglomerate where we don’t report the news, no, where we make the News, at Time Warner CNN Swampland, we give you the winner of the New Top Award, for The Person who achieved excellence in Trash Journalism, a Person who has no peer, a Person who lead from start to finish in this competition for the first ten year Award ever in the history of our conglomerate, the Award of the Decade … and the winner is, …. Joe [the God Maker] Klein.  Come forward Joe, give us the best smirk you have and accept our applause.”

    Friend, most definitely, great Blogger, most definitely not 🙂

    But thank you, Ike.

    OH, forgot. Great Post!

    Hi Rod. I don’t like to disagree with you but I must do so on your second point. A good Blogger should be able to report news intelligently and you do that. A Great Blogger will take the reader into the things he shares and loves and make the visitor part of it, in the knowledge, the fun, and the heartbreaks and in the victories. You have done that to me in the America of the Fifty States that I have come to admire and respect. In fact, I regard you as part of my recent American experience and that makes you a great Blogger in my book.

    Thanks Rod. Someone must expose this lot and it seems it has fallen on me to do so!
