WASHINGTON, March 5, 2013 – Accuracy in Media will honor Catherine Herridge of the Fox News Channel for her outstanding achievements in investigative journalism, and Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit for his groundbreaking contributions to New Media in a ceremony taking place at the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on March 14th. The Reed Irvine award is named for AIM’s founder, America’s first media watchdog.
“Accuracy in Media could not be more pleased about the recipients of this year’s Reed Irvine awards,” Chairman Don Irvine said. “We at AIM have been most impressed with the excellent reporting of Catherine Herridge, especially her unparalleled work in exposing and analyzing the events surrounding the terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya on September 11th.”
Irvine also praised Jim Hoft, the proprietor of GatewayPundit.com. “His dedication to a free America and his personal devotion to democracy that has led him to cover freedom movements from inside Iran to the streets of Azerbaijan, have propelled GatewayPundit into one of the country’s top resources for right-of-center news and commentary.”
