"Quote of the Year" Selection

Ed Schultz earned the “Quote of the Year” distinction as voted by the audience.

To make the decision, MRC President Brent Bozell asked the presenters and acceptors back on stage (Neal Boortz, Andrew Klavan, Ann Coulter, Erick Erickson, Jenny Beth Martin, Mark Meckler, Tim Phillips, Congressman Steve King and Ken Cuccinelli.)

Then the attendees saw all the winning videos again in four categories – “The Obamagasm Award” (Evan Thomas), “Damn the Tea Party to Hell Award” (Tavis Smiley), “Ode to Olbermann Award” (Keith Olbermann) and “Damn Those Conservatives Award” (Ed Schultz).

As a picture of each nominee was displayed, audience members were asked to hoot, cheer, applaud and use noisemakers to express their opinion on which quote deserved the Quote of the Year designation as the worst bias since the MRC’s last DisHonors Awards in early 2009.

Those on stage huddled and Mark Meckler announced they decided Ed Schultz generated the most-venomous reaction from the audience for this outburst on The Ed Show of September 23, 2009:

"The Republicans lie! They want to see you dead! They’d rather make money off your dead corpse! They kind of like it when that woman has cancer and they don’t have anything for her."
