MSNBC's Ed Schultz "Wins" Quote of the Year for Worst Liberal Bias of 2010

DisHonors also go to Newsweek's Evan Thomas, Keith Olbermann and PBS' Tavis Smiley. The Meathead, too.
ALEXANDRIA, VA - The Media Research Center (MRC) today proudly announces that Ed Schultz is the "Winner" of the dis-honor of Quote of the Year for his "Damn Those Conservatives" diatribe on his MSNBC The Ed Show (video below):

"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."

The competition was fierce, but Mr. Schultz was selected by the more than 850 attendees who cheered and jeered throughout the evening to roast the liberal media's worst at the MRC's annual DisHonors Awards Gala. The event was held Saturday evening at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. Below is a full list of the awards, winners, and the quotes that earned them their respective DisHonors.

Cal Thomas was given the only true honor that evening, accepting the 5th annual "William F. Buckley Jr. Award for Media Excellence" on stage. A lively musical performance was given by The Outlaws as well.

DisHonors Award Winning Quotes of 2010

QUOTE OF THE YEAR and Winner of Damn Those Conservatives Award

"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."
- Ed Schultz, host of MSNBC's The Ed Show, September 23, 2009.

The Obamagasm Award

"Reagan [at the 1984 D-Day commemoration] was all about America, and you talked about it. Obama is, 'We are above that now. We're not just parochial, we're not just chauvinistic, we're not just provincial. We stand for something.' I mean, in a way, Obama's standing above the country, above - above the world. He's sort of God. He's going to bring all different sides together."
- Newsweek's Evan Thomas to host Chris Matthews on MSNBC's Hardball, June 5, 2009.

The Tea Party From Hell Award

Author Ayaan Hirsi Ali, talking about radical Muslims:
"Somehow, the idea got into their minds that to kill other people is a great thing to do and that they would be rewarded in the hereafter."
Host Tavis Smiley: "But Christians do that every single day in this country."
Ali: "Do they blow people up every day?"
Smiley: "Yes. Oh, Christians, every day, people walk into post offices, they walk into schools, that's what Columbine is - I could do this all day long....There are folk in the Tea Party, for example, every day who are being recently arrested for making threats against elected officials, for calling people 'nigger' as they walk into Capitol Hill, for spitting on people. That's within the political - that's within the body politic of this country."
- PBS's Tavis Smiley, May 25, 2010.

Ode to Olbermann

"'What was the more likely cause of the Oklahoma City bombing: talk radio or Bill Clinton and Janet Reno's hands-on management of Waco, the Branch Davidian compound and maybe to a lesser extent Ruby Ridge?' Well, obviously, the answer is talk radio, specifically Rush Limbaugh's hate radio....Limbaugh claimed others would have blood on their hands in the event of future right wing terrorism. Frankly, Rush, you have that blood on your hands now, and you have had it for 15 years."
- MSNBC's Keith Olbermann naming Rush Limbaugh the "Worst Person in the World," April 19, 2010 Countdown.

The I'm Not a Political Genius But I Play One on TV Award

"Hitler, by the way, never got more than 33 percent of the vote ever in Germany....He wasn't a majority guy, but he was charismatic, and they were having bad economic times - just like we are now. People were out of work, they needed jobs, and a guy came along and rallied the troops. My fear is that the Tea Party gets a charismatic leader, because all they're selling is fear and anger and that's all Hitler sold: 'I'm angry and I'm frightened and you should hate that guy over there.'"
- Actor/director/liberal activist Rob Reiner on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, Oct. 22, 2010.
