Please join us in celebrating the Media Research Center's 25th Anniversary.
The MRC Gala already has a reputation as "the one fun dinner in Washington all year," as Ann Coulter said at last year's event. With this year marking the MRC's 25th year as "America's Media Watchdog," the 2012 MRC Gala is sure to be a star-studded evening worthy of a silver anniversary celebration. As always, it will include the DisHonors Awards and the William F. Buckley, Jr. Award for Media Excellence, but there are sure to be a few surprises guaranteed to make it a night to remember.
Get ready for an elegant and action-packed evening of friends, food, music and plenty of laughs at the expense of the liberal media.
Each year, nearly 1,000 conservatives gather to skewer the most preposterous, excruciatingly stupid, and downright hysterical instances of liberal media bias.
The Gala parodies the Oscars with Presenters and Accepters, except unlike the Oscars, our event is fun, witty and original.
While media bias is not always a laughing matter—the media are after all the chief propagandists for the Radical Left—we think every once in a while it's healthy to poke fun at the hardcore leftists who comprise the national press corps.
And we anticipate this year's Gala to be one for the record books. Not only are we in the middle of a historic election in which the liberal media have shed all pretense of objectivity, but this year the Media Research Center celebrates our 25th year anniversary of exposing and neutralizing the liberal media, and we aren't holding anything back!
A distinguished panel of twelve judges — including Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Mark Levin — selected winners for four awards:
The Obamagasm Award
The Vast Right-Wing Knuckle-Dragger Award
Damn Those Conservatives to Hell Award
The Barbra Streisand Political IQ Award for Celebrity Vapidity
At the end, the audience will select the winner of the Worst Reporter in the History of Man Award.
William F. Buckley, Jr. Award for Media Excellence
Each year, MRC president Brent Bozell presents this award to a conservative leader whose career exemplifies Bill Buckley's drive to penetrate the liberal media's wall of bias with imagination and tenacity.
This year's award is being presented posthumously to Andrew Breitbart.
