The Media Research Center (MRC) today proudly announces that HBO's Bill Maher is the "Winner" of Quote of the Year for tastelessly suggesting that Sarah Palin's teenage daughter Bristol was the actual birth mother of her infant son, Trig. Maher was selected by the more than 800 attendees of the MRC's annual DisHonors Awards Gala, held last night at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Maher-- winner of the Half-Baked Alaska Award for Pummeling Palin -- beat out MSNBC's Chris Matthews (the Media Messiah Award), CNN founder Ted Turner (the Dan Rather Memorial Award for the Stupidest Analysis) and ABC's Bill Weir (the Obamagasm Award).
The competition at the DisHonors Awards Gala is always fierce; this year it was even more so. But the panel of distinguished judges -- including Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Larry Kudlow, Tony Blankley and the MRC's own President Brent Bozell -- combed through thousands of lowlights to select the four DisHonorees.
