  • Michelle Malkin Wins 2013 Breitbart Award for Excellence in Journalism

    ORLANDO—The Heritage Foundation and Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity presented the second annual Breitbart Award to Michelle Malkin, syndicated columnist and Fox News Channel contributor. Malkin was honored at tonight’s Krieble Dinner at Heritage’s Resource Bank. The award was presented by Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint and Franklin Center President Jason Stverak.

    The Breitbart Award honors those who advocate for the truth — a quality that Malkin exemplifies. As the founder of three successful conservative blogs — michellemalkin.com, Hot Air (now owned by Salem Communications), and Twitchy — has changed the way Americans consume media. Malkin dedicates her life to tackling the issues others often shy away from.

    Erik Telford, vice president of strategic initiatives and communications at the Franklin Center, noted these traits:

    Michelle Malkin is a champion in the pursuit of truth and accountability who has tirelessly worked to expose corruption and waste in government. She never hesitates to speak truth to power, debate issues that the mainstream media and political insiders would prefer to sweep under the rug, and empower citizens to join in her cause. Her work exemplifies Andrew Breitbart’s fiery spirit and advances his legacy.

    The late Andrew Breitbart pioneered a new-media revolution that transformed journalism and the political landscape: a tradition that carries at Breitbart News Network. The company’s president and CEO, Larry Solov, was in attendance along with Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon.
