The Best Notable Quotables of 1996:

The Ninth Annual Awards for the
Year’s Worst Reporting


     Welcome to the Media Research Center's annual awards issue, a compilation of the most outrageous and/or humorous news media quotes from 1996. To determine this year's winners, a panel of 58 talk show hosts, magazine editors, columnists, editorial writers and media observers each selected their choices for the first, second and third best quote from six to ten quotes in each category. First place selections were awarded three points, second place choices two points, with one point for the third place selections. Point totals are listed in the brackets at the end of the attribution for each quote. (The first quote under each award heading is the winner, followed in order by the top runners-up.)
