Stupid Reporter Awards

Grand Prize. Sean Hannity. Fox News.

Ya'll remember the good reverend Fred Phelps? God and gay-fearing troglodite who says American soldiers are dying because God hates The Gays?

Hannity thinks Phelps is a liberuhl.

On the August 30 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Fox News host Sean Hannity falsely blamed "the anti-war left" for a protest at the August 28 funeral of Sgt. Jeremy Doyle of Indianapolis, who was killed while serving in Iraq. Hannity read excerpts of an article on the website of Indianapolis TV station WISH describing the protest, adding, "I guess this is just another example of how the anti-war left supports our brave troops." In fact, as The Indianapolis Star reported, the protesters were not anti-war liberals but, rather, members of Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) in Topeka, Kansas, who claim that the deaths of U.S. soldiers in Iraq are inflicted by God to punish the United States for its acceptance of gays and lesbians.

Hooked on phonics really worked for Hannity.

Runner Up...
By H. Josef Hebert, Associated Press Writer. Natural gas prices may leap 71%, oil, electricity less

The article goes on and on about oil and gasoline, never a mention why natural gas prices are increasing. News flash, Josef, natural gas is produced in the U.S. The Four Corners area is a big producer of natural gas, with much of it moved around the country on gas lines. There are energy costs associated with productions (petroleum), but our source of natural gas wasn't effected by Katrina.

Did you even do any research for this article? Didja, didja?
