No surprise here: MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, who recently referred to President Obama as “the perfect American,” was the runaway winner of the Media Research Council’s “Obamagasm” award. Matthews out-tingled Diane Sawyer and Piers Morgan for the honor, presented at the MRC’s 25th anniversary gala on Thursday.

MSNBC also picked up the honor for bringing audiences the “Vast Right Wing Knuckle-Dragger.”

Thomas Roberts is the one who let Obama spox Jen Psaki claim attacks on Obama for not meeting w/Netanyahu were "pathetic and ridiculous" btw

Thomas Roberts picks up #MRC award for saying Republicans want to go back to time when women couldn't vote and "slavery was cool."

Roberts also repeated on air the lie that Mitt Romney had taken his campaign slogan from the KKK.

Andrew Breitbart was presented with the William F. Buckley Award for Media Excellence posthumously. The award honors “a conservative leader whose career exemplifies Bill Buckley’s drive to penetrate the liberal media’s wall of bias with imagination and tenacity.”

Cal Thomas introduced the award, which was accepted by Breitbart’s father-in-law, Orson Bean.

"In an America a long, long time ago, there existed a species called the 'investigative reporter.'" -Cal Thomas #MRC25th
