I was at the Media Research Center's 20th Anniversary Dinner last night, where the media watchdog group gave out its less-than-coveted Dishonors Awards for the year's worst moments in liberal reporting.

The night was a laugh riot, as it always is, and a celebration of the fact that now, 20 years after MRC's founding, there are many more people in the media criticism game and many more ways to make conservative voices heard above the leftist din of the MSM.

Katie and I had some audio difficulties with my part of the video, so I made a bit of a highlight reel for you from the dinner featuring Michael Steele (running again, by the way!), Pat Sajak, Herman Cain, Mary Matalin, El Rushbo, and of course the heavy hitters of journalism-- Katie Couric and Rosie O'Donnell.

Happy Anniversary, MRC! Check in with MRC's Newsbusters blog for constant monitoring of our friends in the media.

Update:  "It is finished."

Also, Bryan and Michelle totally go to prom in today's Vent. Kidding, it's a cute day-in-the-life of Hot Air.
