Good on yer, McClatchy

 Throughout the prolonged surreal turn that has been the Bush Years, McClatchy News Service has been one of the few print media outlets to practice a consistently high level of journalism. The work of two McClatchy reporters was profiled in Bill Moyers' seminal documentary, Buying the War.

To say that the McClatchy reporters put their colleagues to shame is an understatement.

In a rare salute to journalism that matters, to journalism as a necessary functioning part of a free society, McClatchy's Washington bureau chief, John Walcott. received the I.F. Stone Medal for Journalistic Independence. Here's his acceptance speech.

Are you listening. NY Times? ABC? NBC? WaPost? CBS? CNN? Errrr, Fox?
