Novak wins 'Stinky Fish' award
"HURRY!!!!!! Only a few seats left!!!!! Bob Novak, the Prince of Darkness himself, is selling 85 seats to people willing to pay $595 for his access to Washington's top decision-makers," writes Garrett Graff. "An email invite from Novak went out this morning to Human Events' mailing list offering a limited-time offer to sign up attend the three-decade-old 'Evans-Novak Political Forum' and get access to 'The Ultimate (Secret) Source.'"
"It seems, with all of the drama over sources and a reporter sitting in jail for a story that Novak wrote, that this is a particularly unpleasant and inappropriate time for anyone to be advertising such an event that mixes journalism with cash to result in access to national leaders--and particularly repulsive given that Novak himself is doing it.
"Hence, our second awarding of a Stinky Fish award recognizing the worst journalism journalism has to offer. Think of the Stinky Fish as the Anti-Pulitzer.
"So congrats Mr. Novak: Today, you officially stink." (FishBowlDC)
