    I'll never forget her coverage of election night 2000 and her cackling and idiotic giggling that Bush might have "won" the election. Its as if she was hoping it would turn out that way...Well, unfortunately for America, it did....I'll never forget or forgive her demeanor as a partisan reporter that evening........

    Congratulations. Her, Blitzer, Amanpour and King are the only four unbiased reporters/commentators left on CNN. Bring Bernie Shaw back, he had true integrity.

    To: malclave, no it is not. Unlike Couric's award, this one is much deserved. Candy Crowley is one of the few unbiased voices on CNN, and a journalist in the truest sense of the word.

  13. How Nice

    It's nice to see how Liberal journalists can get rewarded by Liberal judges. Sad that most of those at CNN don't believe that fairness includes includes having both sides of an argument to be fairly represented in covering any of the journalist stories they release.

    Its like going to court as an defendant and the jurors (those viewing CNN) are only allowed to hear the prosecutors arguments. Well that is kind of the standard of journalism at MSNBC and CNN. They just want us to understand the liberal's point of view on all issues. The conservative approach of productive people making adding value to our economy, that made this country great is largely ignored as a viable option we should pursue as a country. Instead CNN believes that government and its excesses of spending and taxes is the only solution.

    It is certainly a solution if the objective is how can we as a country destroy capitalism and grow governemtn so that it is certain that we bankrupt our future generations.
