The Eleventh 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 1998. To determine this year’s winners, a panel of 50 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.

A list of the judges appears on the last page.

The first quote under each award heading is the winner, followed in order by the top runners-up.
