Welcome to the
Media Research Center's annual awards issue, a compilation of the most outrageous and/or humorous news media quotes from 1997. 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 eight 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.
This issue covers quotes from late 1996 through Nov.
1997. The first quote under each award heading is the winner, followed in order by the top runners-up.
