2009 Natie Awards Announced for Journalism

leave a comment »

The journalism Natie is the crown jewel of the Natie awards.   To be nominated, an article must seamlessly combine fact, analysis, and opinion to let the reader know not only what is happening in the world, but also to let them know what they should think about it.   This is the most difficult category to narrow down the nominations for and this year was especially difficult.   Last year’s winner Now Obama Has His Own Flag – I Bet the Colors Run set the bar very high, but I believe all 6 of this year’s nominees surpassed it in some way.  The nominees are:

  1. Obama Endangers Rural Illinois (
  2. A Patriot’s Guide to Disrupting Town Halls (
  3. Obama’s Surgeon General is Just Too Fat (
  4. Did Obama Murder Stimulus Critic Mark Sanford (
  5. Report Attacking Conservatives is the Real Terrorism (
  6. Obama Recites Presidential Oath on Koran (

In a very close vote, Obama Recites Presidential Oath on Koran is the winner!!

Wow, I feel very honored to have personally captured 3 Naties so far this year and to have all 4 of the winners be from my site.  The NATIE nominations remain a great place to find a half dozen of the most important and most influential blog postings in the past year.
