MRC's DisHonor Awards
  Roasting the Most Outrageously Biased Liberal Reporters of 2002
Thursday, March 27, 2003
The Omni Shoreham Hotel

Second Award

The I’m Not a Geopolitical Genius But
I Play One on TV Award


Susan Sarandon

See video of Sean Hannity introducing Susan Sarandon's quote

“Let us find a way to resist fundamentalism that leads to violence — fundamentalism of all kinds, in al Qaeda and within our government. And what is our fundamentalism? Cloaked in patriotism and out doctrine of spreading democracy throughout the world, our fundamentalism is business, the unfettered spread of our economic interests throughout the globe. Our resistance to this war should be our resistance to profit at the cost of human life.”
— Actress Susan Sarandon at an anti-Iraq war protest in Washington, DC on October 26.


Barbra Streisand

See video of Sean Hannity introducing Barbra Streisand as a nominee

Brit Hume: “You’ve probably heard or read that at a Democratic Party fundraiser in Los Angeles over the weekend, Barbra Streisand performed a re-worked version of her famous hit song Memories from the movie The Way We Were. You may have heard that it was called Miseries and was about life under this Republican administration. You may not have believed that this actually happened. Well:” 
Barbra Streisand, singing: “Scattered pictures/Of the House we left behind/Lovely Democratic mem’ries/Of the way we were....
“Unprecedented Growth in the Economy/The Dow was up, the deficit was down/As long as Democrats were the majority/I could sleep nights, not weep nights.”
Hume, laughing: “And that’s Special Report for this time, please come again next time. And in the meantime, stay tuned for news: Fair, balanced and unafraid.”
— Barbra Streisand at a September 29 fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.


And the winner is:

Jessica Lange

See video of Sean Hannity introducing Jessica Lange's quote

“I despise him [President George W. Bush]. I despise his administration and everything they stand for....To my mind the election was stolen by George Bush and we have been suffering ever since under this man’s leadership....There has to be a movement now to really oppose what he is proposing because it’s unconstitutional, it’s immoral and basically illegal....It is an embarrassing time to be an American. It really is. It’s humiliating.”
— Actress Jessica Lange at a film festival in Spain, September 25.
