Quote of the Day - The image of the reporter as a nicotine-stained Quixote, slugging back Scotch while skewering city hall with an expose ripped out of a typewriter on the crack of deadline, persists despite munificent evidence to the contrary.
As regular readers know, MITPC is a card-carrying journalist; a member of the Los Angeles Press Club. Last year, as you can see over there on the left navigation bar, MIPTC was lucky enough to win the LA Press Club's award for Best Individual Weblog. They're doing it all over again, and as one of my close friends says, "wieux hieux!" MIPTC is honored to be named as a finalist for the 49th Annual Southern California Journalism Awards in three categories: Design & Layout, Individual Weblog and Online-only Website. There's some stiff competition, but in a little bit more than a month on Saturday, June 16, 2007, we'll know the winners and report back to you.
Here are the other finalists from the LA Press Club's announcement:
Design & Layout
Best of luck to everyone! According to the Press Club's website, "The 49th Journalism Awards Gala will bestow Judy Woodruff of PBS with the Joseph M. Quinn Award. Slain Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya of Novaya Gazeta will posthumously be honored with the Daniel Pearl Award and syndicated columnist Gustavo "Ask a Mexican" Arellano will receive the President's Award. This year's Award Gala will be dedicated to the late Cathy Seipp, a longtime member of and contributor to Los Angeles Press Club, who lost her battle to cancer in March of 2007."
