MRC Announces First Annual Bulldog Award Winners: Levin, Bongino, Devine, Rosiak, Gutowski, Holden

The Media Research Center presents the first ever Bulldog Awards, which are presented in six categories. This honors conservatives who deserve praises but will not be recognized by the mainstream media.

The six winners of the MRC’s 2022 Bulldog Awards, as determined by the senior staff of the MRC who assessed recommended submissions from the readers of NewsBusters and supporters of the Media Research Center: Mark Levin and Dan Bongino Miranda Devine Luke Rosiak Stephen Gutowski and Drew Holden

Awards are given throughout the year to left-leaning journalists for their advocacy of liberal causes. The Pulitzer Prizes, the largest journalism award, were presented Monday. They honored liberal-minded journalists, as it was inevitable. (The Washington Post won “for its compellingly told and vividly presented account of the assault on Washington on January 6, 2021” and the Houston Chronicle earned a prize for how they “revealed voter suppression tactics, rejected the myth of widespread voter fraud and argued for sensible voting reforms.”)

In announcing the winners of the Bulldog Awards, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell explained: “Today’s MRC Bulldog Award recipients have been selected after careful consideration. Their impactful work is trusted and respected by Americans nationwide, unlike the work of the left-wing operatives that call themselves ‘journalists.’ As the liberal media celebrate themselves with Pulitzers, we wanted to shine a light on the real truth-tellers who are greatly dedicated to informing the American public on stories the legacy media ignores. Congratulations to this year’s winners!”

Devine demonstrated deftness when using her Post column to break news on e-mails from Hunter’s laptop, such as one about Hunter having “sought a forever deal with China military-tied firm,” and another that he introduced his father to his “shady business partners” from Eastern Europe.
