That’s Right Nate

Thoughts from a right thinker.

Today’s Natie is for Straight Reporting Which Isn’t To Imply That Any Other Articles Were Anything But Straight.

with 3 comments

One of the tough things about putting the Natie’s together this year has been the categories.  I have divided the awards into Analysis, Investigative Reporting and Straight Reporting which in no ways implies that any of my other articles are in anyway less than straight.  I will also have a Reader of the Year, Reader’s Choice, and Video award to round out the competition.  Let’s look at the definitions of the first four categories:

Analysis: Helps people to understand important issues
Straight Reporting: This is all about reporting with no personal opinion
Investigative Reporting: The main ingredient here is shoe leather
Journalism: Straight reporting, but I filter it through my opinion kind of like Fox News does.

Tonight’s award is for straight reporting.  Frankly, it is the most boring award to me because there is just less of me in theses stories.  Still, I like to think of myself as Bill O’Reilly meets Geraldo Rivera meets Edward R. Murrow without the Communism and reporting is part of the job.

The nominees are:

  1. Bush to India, “Stop Eating So Much.”
  2. His Courage was Forged in Hannoi: The John McCain Story
  3. You’ve Been Left Behind Sucker
  4. McCain Calls for Lower Teacher Standards
  5. McCain Gets Tough on Himself Over the Economy
  6. Polls Show McCain Dominating Real America

The winner of the award is You’ve Been Left Behind Sucker–the story of a website that allows you to help your unsaved friends and family when the Rapture comes.

  1. How does one qualify for the Reader of the Year Award. I shlould think that gifting Nate with BOTH the “Pretty in Mink” calendar and Glenn Beck’s latest book scores one some serious points.

  2. I hope I’m at least nominated for the “Best Brazilian Commentator of Nate’s Blog” Award.
    Steve, did Nate like the Pretty in Pink calendar?

  3. Lola, Let’s put it this way, what would you prefer: the Pretty in Mink calendar or the world’s largest pocket protector and the dust jacket for an imaginary book?

    Once again, I get scrooged by Nate at Christmas.
