They can give themselves awards daily, but that doesn’t mean anyone believes it.
Laughable self aggrandizement.
Soon there will be more newspaper awards than there are subscribers.
Anybody care to wager on the last day the LA Times is printed?
Sounds like the last gasp of a dying dinosaur...
Liberals give themselves awards all the time. As usual this means nothing to anyone but themselves.
Kind of like the newspaper version of the Academy Awards.
Leftists congratulate themselves. It is almost like those garbage self esteem courses.
Yep, Liberals giving awards to Liberals For being Liberals!
Why do I care?
Reminds me of when my kids were little and got a little swimming trophy at the end of the season. Everyone got one, so they were really worth nothing, and my kids knew it.
Liberals giving themselves an award for being liberals.
