Mother Jones reporter wins Polk Award for Romney story

Source: AP

NEW YORK (AP) The reporter for Mother Jones magazine who broke the story of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's remarks that 47 percent of Americans "believe they are victims" is among the winners of the 64th annual George Polk Awards in Journalism.

David Corn, Mother Jones' Washington bureau chief, received the political reporting prize for his work, which shook up the campaign when he reported on the remarks in September.

The awards were announced Monday by Long Island University. Winners also include journalists from Bloomberg News, The New York Times, CBS News, McClatchy Newspapers, GlobalPost, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, The New Yorker, The Washington Post, the Maine Sunday Telegram, "Frontline," and the nonprofit California Watch.

Among the top prizes in U.S. journalism, the Polk Awards were created in 1949 in honor of CBS reporter George W. Polk, who was killed while covering the Greek civil war. This year's awards will be given out April 11.

No Integrity Name Stealer,

As a defective that "Joneses for his Mommy" can you enlighten us from your perspectives in Mommy's Spare Bedroom WHY an award from a Propaganda Source to an Official Propagandist of the Sheeple Media, is relevant?

It suffices to say that the Awful Truth that Mr Romney spoke, which fed ammunition (Propaganda) to your Talking Points Leaders was foolish on Romney's part.

I will not take the time to produce the 1000's of LIES from your "Leaders and their "Sources", but suffice it to say, their consistent stream of lies, deflections, minimizing, and Talking Point Production IS very affective to manipulate you ill educated Sheeple.

Just look at this post of yours.

Romney is a name in History and useless/obscure, but just like "It is Bush's Fault" has animated you Sheeple for 5 years, Mr Romney should be good for at least 3 years for you in the Kool Aid Classes!

Learn a little bit of personal shame!

Perhaps your reading comprehension is a bit rusty. The story is about an award for a journalist that broke possbily the biggest story in last years election.

Myself, I'd be ashamed to post if I was unable to understand what the topic was. But that's just me.

Clown,

We see from your posts that your most used tool as a Sheeple is expressions based on...

"A majority Feel"

"Most Feel"

"Everyone Feels"

"All Feel"

YOU may feel that the Story promoted by the Propagandists that easily manipulated you Sheeple in 2012, was the 24/7 coverage of the Awful Truth Mr Romney spoke of.

As a Sheeple this satiates you.....we get it.

The 80% of Americans that did not vote for your Messiah, and do not have an overwhelming need to "seem relevant", realize that the 1000's of Lies ignored by your Propagandists in the Demokrat Politburo, are why America is where it is!

David Corn is a Fauching Idiot, as are the other Heroes you Sheeple adore, who produce your Kool Aid on those Web Sites that you use for affirmation that you are relevant and important, a part of what "Everyone Feels".

Bbahayahahayahh!

David Corn deserves the congressional medal of honor for breaking the story of Romney's true beliefs.

Your ability to describe your "feelings" as "facts" and opposing "facts" as "feelings" is legendary. You never disappoint. You're funnier when you're drunk though.

Interesting rant.
Unique and unexpectedly original from a Low Integrity Poster that fears the light outside of Mommy's Spare Bedroom.

You win today's Fragile Ego Contest.

I have tired of slapping you around.

Besides I have a Business to get to. Not a Furtune 500 Bidness, but business that I enjoy none the less.

In other words, you give up and quit because you are unable to muster anything but personal insults as opposed to presenting any kind of facts related to the topic.
