The Heritage Foundation, which was once actually a serious think tank and has now apparently become a home for third-rate polemicists, has awarded the 2013 Breitbart Award for Excellence in Journalism to…(drumroll please)…Michelle Malkin. They like her, they really like her!
The Heritage Foundation and Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity presented the second annual Breitbart Award to Michelle Malkin, syndicated columnist and Fox News Channel contributor. Malkin was honored at tonight’s Krieble Dinner at Heritage’s Resource Bank. The award was presented by Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint and Franklin Center President Jason Stverak.
The Breitbart Award honors those who advocate for the truth — a quality that Malkin exemplifies. As the founder of three successful conservative blogs — michellemalkin.com, Hot Air (now owned by Salem Communications), and Twitchy — has changed the way Americans consume media. Malkin dedicates her life to tackling the issues others often shy away from.
Planet Wingnuttia is all abuzz, waiting to see who wins the David Vitter Award for the Promotion of Family Values and and the Michele Bachmann Award for Mental Stability.
