Announcing the 2009 Square House Awards
I'd like to recognize the following bloggers for making it through the entire mixed up, muddled up, shook up year of 2008 with their scales thoroughly uncontaminated by thumb prints.
Avedon Carol (Sideshow)
Arthur Silber (Power of Narrative)
Bob Somerby (The Daily Howler)
... for telling it like it is, day after day after day.
One thing all three have in common is a readiness to tell an inconvenient truth for no other reason than that it's the truth.
Other Square House Awards go to:
Paul Krugman (New York Times), for Best Big-Media Blogger
Glenn Greenwald (Salon.com), for Best A-list Blogger
Anglachel (Anglachel's Journal), for Best Democratic Primary Coverage
And for Best Blogger I Can't Give An Award To, 'Cause We're On the Same Blog, Lambert Strether (Correntewire).
The selections are my own, made by putting the blogosphere onto a piece of wood and banging a few nails through it. Additional awards may be issued at any old time.
