Details to come, but Reason journalists won some notice at the Los Angeles Press Club's 56th SoCal Journalism Awards, announced just tonight! Courtesy of Scott Shackford and Paul Detrick, who were in attendance and tweeted the honors as they happened, a photo of one of the six awards is posted at right.

Winning notice were: "America's Longest War," by Paul Feine and Alex Manning, for Feature Documentary; "Anarchy in Detroit," by Zach Weissmuller, for Advocacy Journalism, "The Inglory of Jackie Robinson's Times," by Matt Welch, for Online Sports News/Feature/Commentary; "LA County Sheriffs Hassle Photographer, Trample Constitution, Get Lauded by Bosses," by Paul Detrick, for Investigative Television; "Riverside Cop Tricks Autistic Teen into Buying Pot," by Amanda Winkler, for Television Feature, and "Why I'm Teaching My Son To Break the Law," by yours truly.

Kudos to all Reason staffers for the hard work that wins this kind of notice.

  1. Awesome. Good work to all.

    1. OT: apparently you can’t say Jesus Christ on AMC. Substitutes: “jeepers creepers” and “Judas Priest.”

  2. Kudos, Matt, Zach, 2Chili, et al.

  3. Congratulations! They clearly didn’t bother vetting the nominees for icky libertarians.

    1. No, they forgot to do that. But notice that all the pieces recognized reinforce liberal dogma only.

      The USDA’s destructiveness, the ACA, Obama’s megacontributions to the Bush policies that liberals hated… None of that seemed to catch anyone’s eye.

      Oh well. Getting recognition will get people to visit here, including liberals. They’ll eventually stop to smell the roses in one of these free market articles, and there may be hope for some of them yet.

      1. all the pieces recognized reinforce liberal dogma only.

        Tucille’s doesn’t. That’s why I’m so curious what he won. “Obey the Proper Authorities?” and “More Laws Are the Way to Paradise” are liberal dogma these days. Sure he presses some of the right buttons (anti-slavery), but stuff like this sure doesn’t:

        Taxes, nanny-state restrictions, business regulations, drug laws … All beg for defiance. The Fugitive Slave Law may no longer command Americans to do evil, but “safety” rules would have physicians and mental health professionals snitch on their patients.

  4. Gillspie: So, you goin’ to this lame So-Cal awards thing?

    Welch: Nah, man, that’s like being the prettiest girl in the whole wide room.

    *stare at each other in silence*

    Gillespie and Welch in unison: Shackford!

    Welch: Flip you on who has to tell him what he’s doing on Sunday.

    Gillespie: Heads.

    *welch flips*

    Welch: Damnit! Texting him now…

  5. Congratulations all! You keep up the good work and we’ll keep on calling you unserious left-wing shills.

  6. Well done and congratulations to all!
    I guess there is something to read here besides the comments 😉

  7. And yet The Jacket itself is shut out once again.

  8. Congratulations to all!

  9. “Why I’m Teaching My Son To Break the Law,” by yours truly.

    Hey Tucille, you forgot to tell us what yours won! Come on, that’s the most important one too.

    1. Ok, so I found out what he won. “POLITICAL COLUMN/ COMMENTARY”.…..s-2014.pdf (see pg 15)

  10. Congrats to all.

    More traffic will mean more trolls but also some converts as well. We just need to keep spreading the message.

  11. Southern California. Figures.

  12. Clearly TEH KKKOCHTOPUS!!!! bought out the Los Angeles Press Club.

  13. What did the squirrelz win?

  14. Congratulations to all! Good Job!!
