Cindy Sheehan Media Hero Award
"I see her [Hillary Clinton] in ó sheís very consistent [in] what sheís always believed. Sheís always had strong religious faith. Sheís been a strong Methodist. She does have conservative social values on many issues."
ó U.S. News & World Report Editor at Large David Gergen, on CNNís Anderson Cooper 360, February 9.


"As was the practice in all that he did, Dan was meticulously careful to be fair and balanced and accurate. When did we stop believing that this is indeed how we all perform our jobs, or try to? When did we allow those with questionable agendas to take the lead and convince people of something quite the opposite? Itís shameful. But I digress."
ó MSNBC President and former ABC and CNN news executive Rick Kaplan praising ex-CBS anchor Dan Rather on September 19 as the latter received a lifetime achievement award from the National Television Academy, a ceremony televised on C-SPAN on October 1.


And the winner is...
Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan: "Weíre not going to cure terrorism and spread peace and good will in the Middle East by killing innocent people or ó Iím not even saying our bullets and bombs are killing them. The occupation ó they donít have food, they donít have clean water, they donít have electricity. They donít have medicine, they donít have doctors. We need to get our military presence out of there, and thatís whatís gonna start building good will....I see Iraq as the base for spreading imperialism...."
Host Chris Matthews: "Are you considering running for Congress, Cindy?"
Sheehan: "No, not this time...."
Matthews: "Okay. Well, I have to tell you, you sound more informed than most U.S. Congresspeople, so maybe you should run."
ó Exchange on MSNBCís Hardball, August 15.
