Ted Turner Wins MRC DisHonor Award
Just returned from the Media Research Center’s annual dinner where they give out DisHonor Awards. Tonight’s big winner: Ted Turner.
Crowd “favorite” Ted said, in a clip replayed several times on the big screens around the room, that North Korea is a ding-how kind of place to be.
Starvation in North Korea? Nah, said Ted. “I saw lots of thin people, riding around on bicycles.”
You just can’t make this stuff up.
Other winners included Rosie O’Donnell — “I’m not a political genius, but I play one on TV” — and Chris Matthews — nominated twice with “Send Bush to Abu Ghraib” and “the Cindy Sheehan Media Hero” awards.
