Stunner… Mother Jones Wins Journalism Award for Its Undercover Romney 47% Hit Piece
It’s that time again for the Democrat-media complex to start its victory lap.
The far left Mother Jones won a prestigious George Polk Award for its undercover hit on Mitt Romney.
The Mother Jones reporter captured Mitt Romney saying it would be difficult to win over the 47% Obama-Claus voters who receive government cash and goodies.
The 47% story on Romney was effective in averting the media’s attention from Barack Obama’s awful record.
It also played right into the Obama-media’s hands in their plan to paint the GOP as being the rich guy’s party.
The AP reported:
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.
Stories on China won David Barboza of The New York Times as well as the staff of Bloomberg News the award for foreign reporting. Barboza’s three-part series looked into the financial assets of government officials and their families. Bloomberg News put together a series of stories looking at China’s elites and their wealth.
China was also the subject for an award-winning television news report by CBS News correspondent Holly Williams and cameraman Andrew Portch. They covered Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng, who escaped from house arrest to the U.S. embassy in Beijing.
