On the December 18 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Sean Hannity stated: "[A]s we announced yesterday on the program, our first annual Left Wing Obamamania Media Sleaze PC Police Award has gone to the group Media Matters."

Hannity was echoing comments he made the previous day when, hours after Media Matters for America named him the 2008 Misinformer of the Year for promoting and embellishing a vast array of false and misleading claims about President-elect Barack Obama and for attacking members of Obama's family, as well as Sen. Hillary Clinton and other progressives, Hannity announced he was giving Media Matters an award, which he named the "first annual Left-Wing Obamamania Media Propaganda Sleaze Award," the "Left-Wing Propaganda Obamamania Media Award," and the "first annual Left-Wing Obamamania Media Propaganda PC Police Award" at various points in the program.

Hannity also repeated his offer of a "prize" for Media Matters. He stated: "[O]ur offer stands. We have a prize for all the Media Matters propagandists, and that is that they get a loop tape of Barack Obama saying, 'change, change, change,' and they can listen to it 24 hours a day, seven days a week."

From the December 18 broadcast of ABC Radio Networks' The Sean Hannity Show:

HANNITY: Well, as we announced yesterday on the program, our first annual Left-Wing Obamamania Media Sleaze PC Police Award has gone to the group Media Matters. Sweet Baby James informs me that they're actually sending out press releases, and they want to be -- please book us.

Folks, I gotta tell you something. There's one thing that just makes me laugh more than anything else: a bunch of pathetic propaganda losers that sit around with the -- their whole job -- after they're funded by a bunch of left-wing radical millionaires, after having deceived the IRS into granting them tax-exempt status, which is reserved for nonprofits and nonpartisan charitable groups -- their entire job all day is to watch other shows in the hope that they may find one word, one sentence, one phrase, one paragraph that they can take out of context and they can play "gotcha." What a bunch of losers.

But, anyway, our -- we still have -- our offer stands. We have a prize for all the Media Matters propagandists, and that is that they get a looped tape of Barack Obama saying, "change, change, change," and they can listen to it 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as they try and book themselves. I'm sure Air America and NBC will be the first takers.
