JOHN HINDERAKER POSTS A REPORT from last night’s Duranty Award dinner. “One of the persistent phenomena of modern times is the Left’s ability to engage in the most dishonest and shameful conduct imaginable, while simultaneously assuming a pose of moral superiority. Walter Duranty was a case in point, as are last night’s honorees. The Left’s pretensions can best be deflated with mockery, and toward that end, the Duranty Prize makes a valuable contribution. May it be presented every year, until the business of journalism is reformed to the point where we no longer have need of it.”
