At the Media Research Center’s 25th Anniversary Gala in Washington, D.C., on Thursday night, former CBS News anchor Katie Couric was voted “The Worst Reporter in the History of Man.”
Couric barely edged out fellow former CBS News anchor Dan Rather.
A crowd of more than 1,000 people attending the gala chose Couric for the honor. The other nominees were Rather, Bryant Gumbel and Brian Williams. The crowd made its choice known through a voice vote–which required a second-round run-off between Couric and Rather.
Couric won the distinction as part of the MRC’s at annual “Dishonors Awards.” The awards were presented at the Media Research Center’s (MRC) sold-out 25th Anniversary Gala dinner, which was held at the National Building Museum in downtown Washington, D.C. The MRC, founded in 1987 by Brent Bozell, is dedicated to holding the liberal media accountable for promoting a left-wing agenda. CNSNews.com is a division of the MRC.
