UPDATED (Sept. 27; 11:20 a.m. EDT): We've added the videos of Melissa Harris-Perry and Chris Matthews, winners in the Dan Rather Memorial Award for the Stupidest Analysis and The Puppy Love Award, respectively.
As voted on by a raucous crowd of nearly 900 attendees at the Media Research Center's 2013 Gala, the Quote of the Year Award was given to none other than the ever-so-contemptible Jonathan Alter, an all-too-frequent contributor at the Obamagasmic network MSNBC. Alter beat out Chris Matthews and Melissa Harris-Perry, also of the Lean Forward network. Alter won for his pronouncement in August 2012 that "repeal [of ObamaCare] equals death" for many Americans.
