This time of year the media likes to give out awards like ‘Person of the Year’ and do retrospectives on the best and worst events or accomplishments. Chris Matthews nabs an especially prestigious award from Media Matters. And it isn’t for biggest head.

This year, of all the news anchors, columnists, pundits, and reporters whose work we’ve critiqued and corrected, one man stands alone as a clear successor to the O’Reilly throne. We are pleased to announce broadcast journalist, former newspaper bureau chief, former presidential speechwriter, and best-selling author Chris Matthews has earned the title of 2005’s “Misinformer of the Year.” At times, it has even been difficult to tell the difference between 2005’s Misinformer of the Year and his predecessor.

I think this quote won it for Tweety:

“Everybody sort of likes the president, except for the real whack-jobs …”

Make some nominations of your own. The Best and Worst of 2005.
