CONGRATULATIONS TO ELEANOR CLIFT: She Just Won MRC's Prestigious Media Lie o' the Year Award!

The Media Research Center held its annual awards gala -- the 2014 Dishonors Award for media bias -- and one particularly pungent pundit took home the grand prize.

A raucous crowd of conservatives attending the Media Research Center's 2014 Gala featuring the DisHonors Awards on Thursday evening selected none other than liberal columnist and shameless Obama/Clinton sycophant Eleanor Clift as the recipient of the Quote of the Year for her insistence that Amb. Chris Stevens was not murdered by terrorists because he died, reportedly, of smoke inhalation...

She beat out current and former MSNBCers Krystal Ball and Martin Bashir, respectively.

Here's her exact quote:

"Every media organization has investigated this to death. This animates the right-wing of the Republican Party. And I would like to point out that Ambassador [Chris] Stevens was not murdered. He died of smoke inhalation in the safe room in that CIA installation," Clift told fellow panelists of the May 11 edition of The McLaughlin Group.

By the way, a few days after initially making this statement, Ms. Clift doubled down on that absurd assertion on the Steve Malzberg Show.

There's a good adjective for malevolent schmucks like Eleanor Clift, but I'd rather not use it on a family blog like this one.

All of this clicking to "Read more" is bullshit. I've been coming here for years, but if I have to keep clicking to read two more sentences, I'll quit coming here at all. It's a fecking click-bait tactic that is best left to D=bag websites. said...

That wwoman is a raging idiot, on par with Crazy Nancy Pelosi, only with less plastic surgery.

@anon -11:50, sorry you feel that way. i was trying to mimic zerohedge where you get to scan the stories and drill into the ones you like.

also - if i were after cash on this site, i'd use aggressive ad tactics of other sites like popups, text links, etc.
