Our Press Awards
However, the political blogs rely to a large extent on the mainstream media. The mainstream media are not all bad. We should continue to buy newspapers!
The following media outlets (they are not in any order of merit and there are several that I have no doubt left out but that should have been included) receive media awards from this humble little blog:

The retired officer - of assistant chief constable rank or higher - has testified that the CIA planted the tiny fragment of circuit board crucial in convicting a Libyan for the 1989 mass murder of 270 people.
The Sunday Herald told us of the UN claim that the Lockerbie trial was rigged.

The Cambridge Evening News.
The Cambridge Evening news reported the words of 7 July London bomb survivor Bruce Lait: "The policeman said 'mind that hole, that's where the bomb was'.

Young George also received fees as director of a subsidiary of Carlyle Corporation, a little known private company which has, in just a few years of its founding, become one of Americas biggest defence contractors. His father, Bush Senior, is also a paid advisor. And what became embarrassing was the revelation that the Bin Ladens held a stake in Carlyle..."
