July Award for Honesty and Humility in the Media


As a native of Big D, I’m proud to give the award to the Dallas Observer. It carried a Page 1 article about the show Top Chef being taped in Dallas, then followed with this correction on its blog (about its description of Janis Burklund of the Dallas Film Commission):

Due to the author being a complete moron, an earlier version of this article misidentified Burklund as someone totally different. We regret the error, because getting the names of people right is definitely in the top 25 of Important Journalism-y Things.
