  1. Excellent point Max !! Thing is, those awards have little to do with quality or integrity and everything to do with “who capitalized on the worst tragedy”. News media loves a meaty story with lots of sadness and/or death and/or fear so when news media hands out awards to itself, well…….you get it.

  2. How about awards for:
    – The most money received from the various levels of governments at taxpayers expense.
    – The most propaganda delivered per taxpayer dollar.

  3. “– The most money received from the various levels of governments at taxpayers expense.”

    CHEK would sweep the competition!
