    Two reporters receiving well deserved awards. The "Situation Room" motto should be, " The best Female news team on TV " The males lose out due to the very bias reporting of Ed Henry and John King.

    Something positive! I've watched Candy Crowley for ages and felt she was one of the best things about television journalism. She's incisive and clear and also has a spirit about her that left her the only newsperson still palatable by the end of the Fall primaries. Great lady.

    A well deserved award. Candy is an excellent journalist. She is fair minded and without the spin unlike so many other CNN news anchors and journalist. I watched her a lot during the 2008 campaign and election process and loved her reporting.

    What a great story. This is nearly as significant as Newt Gingrich calling for Nancy Pelosi to resign.

    This is great. She deserves it.

    The editor for this post, however, needs to go back to Journalism 101 (or at least to Mizzou).

    You can't have a first annual anything. It's first ever and second annual.

    Sorry to be a grammar snob, but this is basic stuff.
