MRC’s Annual Gala and DisHonors Awards

At our annual gala celebrations held in Washington, D.C., the Media Research Center presents the “DisHonors Awards,” roasting the most outrageously biased liberal reporters as selected by a distinguished panel of leading media observers. We show “funny clips” from the past year and mockingly award the worst reporting of the year and then have a conservative leader accept the award in jest.
