Press Action has started awarding reporters and commentators in the print, broadcast and online journalism communities. In their inaugural “Press Action Awards,” they have listed libertarian LewRockwell.com as their site of the year. From their citation:
Llewellyn Rockwell and the contributors to his site steadfastly oppose all U.S. imperial ventures. LewRockwell.com, though, looks beyond issues of war and peace to publish articles on a wide array of topics that often delight, and sometimes annoy, the site’s many loyal readers. Honorable mention: CounterPunch.org and The Black Commentator.
Other people awarded are:
Press Action Person of the Year: Amy Goodman
Reporter of the Year: Jeremy Scahill
Commentator of the Year: William Blum
Blog of the Year: Eschaton
Media Blog of the Year: Left I on the News
Magazine of the Year: Alternative Press Review
Sportswriter of the Year: Dave Zirin
Congratulations to all of the people earning the new award, but especially to Lew Rockwell for all the work he does to advance the cause of freedom.
