2009 Natie Awards Announced for Opinion Blogging

with one comment

The Natie Award for Opinion Blogging replaces the previous award for News Analysis.   This award is given to the article that best captures it’s authors opinions.  These opinions need not be backed up by facts or research, much like George Will’s columns.  Articles in this category enable the blogger to communicate with his reading public without facts or threat of litigation standing in the way.   In an amazing surprise all of the nominees are from  However, one of the articles is from Congressman Jack Kimble (R-CA) and another one is from Mrs. B. Wright marking the first time that articles not written by myself were nominated.    Here are the top 6 nominees:

  1. Why Republicans Voted Against Funding Our Troops ( Nate Peele – Author)
  2. That’s Why They Call it the First Amendment ( B. Wright – Author)
  3. Racism, They Name is America ( Peele – Author)
  4. Congressman Kimble’s Rebuttal to Obama’s School Speech ( Jack Kimble – Author)
  5. Obama Merit Pay Plan a Good Start ( Peele – Author)
  6. Republican Party Must Become Sexual Predators by 2012 ( Peele – Author)

And the winner is That’s Why They Call it the First Amendment by Mrs. B. Wright.

This is a groundbreaking win as she is not only the first female to win a Natie, but the first person other than myself to win won.  On her twitter account @Wingnutte, Mrs. Wright sent out the following messages, “I am both surprised and deeply humbled by the decision of the NATIE committee. Let me be clear, I do not view this as a recognition of my own accomplishments, but as an affirmation of …but as an affirmation of the teapartiers, wingnuts, and all people who understand that fear is the greatest motive force in civilization.”   Truer words have never been spoken.
