It the End of the World As We Know It

The sky is falling! The sky is falling! Prepare for plagues of locusts and the four horsemen of the apocalypse! Prepare for the Detroit Lions to actually win a game!

OK, so it is not the end of the world, but the world is just not right when this happens.

HSPA announces annual contest winners

Indianapolis - The Hoosier State Press Association on Saturday named The Noblesville Ledger the state's top daily newspaper in its annual journalism contest. The Dearborn County Register of Lawrenceburg was the top nondaily newspaper.

The newspapers joined other winners of the HSPA's annual contest honored at a luncheon in Indianapolis.

Under the Best Sports Columnists division for daily papers with circulation of 40,000+ your winner was:

Bob Kravitz, The Indianapolis Newspaper Monopoly

See what a sad state our sports writing in Indiana is. How the hell does Bob Kravitz win this award let alone any award other than Fucktard of the Year?!? (FYI - Voting for said award to be held later this month.) I feel for the two guys from the Post-Tribune in Merrillville who lost to Bob. I guess the Hoosier State Press Association must really hate you guys to put Bob ahead of you.

I am curious as to which column(s) that the Indianapolis Newspaper Monopoly sent in for this contest. I know that not every Kravitz article is usable only as the lining of a bird cage. Yet, I am perplexed as to what he could have written that actually won an award. The man is a hack journalist that half-asses his articles and somehow co-hosts a sports talk radio show, which also explains why most sports talk radio shows suck nationally and locally. We do not bash every Kravitz article but we have pointed out way, way, way too many issues with many of his articles, if you can call them that.

I'm not saying that we should run right out and start building shelters and stocking up on supplies, but this cannot be a good sign of things to come!

BTW - No, it not Bash Bob Kravitz Week or Month or even Year. We are hear to point out bad writing and Mr. Kravitz is the local epitome of bad writing. He just seems to get most of the focus because we see more of his "work"...unfortunately.

This may be the saddest thing I've ever heard. But it makes sense, given that the Star is by far the biggest newspaper in the state.
