WASHINGTON — Journalists for McClatchy's Washington Bureau, The Miami Herald and The Charlotte Observer received national awards for excellence Monday, two organizations announced.

Joseph L. Galloway, who writes a weekly column on military affairs and national security for McClatchy's Washington Bureau that's syndicated by Tribune Media Services, received a citation from the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ). The selection of columns that won the 2008 Sigma Delta Chi award for General Column Writing dealt with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the instability in Pakistan and the policies of former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.

"Society of Professional Journalists" the title itself is an oxymoron, but of course it comes as no surprise that "professional" journalists would love Joe Galloway for his venom filled diatribes against Bush/Cheney.

Lets not hold our breaths waiting for awards to be given to any journalist who speaks ill of "The One".

Galloway does deserve the "Most Biased Journalist Award".
