You know how right wingers love to give each other awards with lofty-sounding titles? Well, I do believe we have an all-time winner for the Most Ludicrous Right Wing Award Award, as the dumbest, most unprofessional right wing blogger of them all, Jim Hoft, will receive the Accuracy in Media Award at CPAC.

DERP

WASHINGTON, March 5, 2013 - Accuracy in Media will honor Catherine Herridge of the Fox News Channel for her outstanding achievements in investigative journalism, and Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit for his groundbreaking contributions to New Media in a ceremony taking place at the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on March 14th. The Reed Irvine award is named for AIM’s founder, America’s first media watchdog. …

Irvine praised Jim Hoft, the proprietor of gatewaypundit.com. “His dedication to a free America and his personal devotion to democracy that has led him to cover freedom movements from inside Iran to the streets of Azerbaijan, have propelled GatewayPundit into one of the country’s top resources for right-of-center news and commentary.”

What a fantastic snapshot of the modern right wing! One of the country’s “top right-of-center news” sources is a borderline illiterate religious fanatic with absolutely no journalistic standards, who promotes every single fake outrage and demented conspiracy theory that bubbles up from the wingnut base, lies outright for partisan reasons, has a nauseatingly vicious and racist comments section, and is wrong more often than any other blogger in the history of the web, yet never, ever admits or corrects a mistake.

Right wing journalism at its finest!
