"L'Annee Terrible" for the MSM

The Media Research Center has compiled their annual list of "the most outrageous and/or humorous news media quotes." Go to the link above or download a pdf.

Is it just me, or is this year's selection particularly good? I suspect there was enough unused material to fill twice as many pages. And Dan Rather appears so often he should be entered into the Hall of Fame for this sort of thing. He got "Quote of the Year" with this gem

“What drives American civilians to risk death in Iraq? In this economy it may be, for some, the only job they can find.”

— Dan Rather teasing a report on the CBS Evening News on March 31, the day four American civilians were killed and mutilated in Fallujah, Iraq.
