Jim “Pushback” Boyd

Just talked with the Powerline bloggers Scott Johnson and John Hinderaker about the bizarre “revised” speech offered up by Strib editorial writer Jim Boyd last week when he won an award, believe it or not, for distinguished journalism. Past recipients were actually pretty distinguished, but this time around, well, we’d like to see the minutes of the Committee meeting which selected Jim Boyd. The Committee that made the award:

MEDIA AWARD COMMITTEE

ROBERT HUNTER, Chair

J. BRIAN ATWOOD
PATRICIA LYNCH EWELL
CHARLES FREEMAN
DANIEL SIMPSON
THEODORE L. ELIOT, Jr.
WILLIAM VANDEN HEUVEL
A. ELIZABETH JONES
KENTON KEITH
HELEN THOMAS (ex oficio)[sic]
BOB BERGER (ex oficio)[sic]

Helen Thomas? Get the picture. As an “ex oficio” member, she may not have voting power, but here’s William vanden Huevel’s speech in honor of Senator Kennedy to give you a sense of that Committee member’s views.

I don’t think we have to guess about this Committee’s in depth review and award process.

Powerline’s assessment is up, and very amusing. And I sure wish the Academy would publish an uncensored transcript of Mr. Boyd’s remarks.
