Cynthia Tucker Award for Self-Deception in Journalism nominees

Cynthia herself, of course, has the inside track, but, 

Clarence Paige:
President has soft-pedaled his own achievements

(I wonder what it would be like if the President had an ounce of chutzpah?)


Steven Pearlstein: 
Democrats suffer from Americans’ unwillingness to accept economic reality
(That should read “further economic destruction.”)

…must not be counted out.

Taking a British idiom, these handsome statuettes of a Unicorn and its editor are known colloquially as the “Starkers” awards.
