Right Intention: The Goebbels Award

The Goebbels Award

This should be an annual award.

Events of this past year have shown the need for a special award in journalism for those who think that the purpose of reporting news is to cause the public to adopt the political views of those who do the reporting. Therefore this column announces the first annual Joseph Goebbels award for that journalist who best exemplifies the spirit and the practice that Dr. Goebbels pioneered.

I nominate Michael Moore, who influenced a lot more people than Rather did.

He's certainly in the first tier. But people like Katie Couric shouldn't be overlooked. I believe her show did a 3 day interview with Kitty Kelly when her unauthorized biography of Bush came out. The free publicity was sickening.

If the award went to an institution as opposed to an individual, I wonder who'd win? One day I may have to do a post on that.
