Inaugural Breitbart Award Winners Honored

Reporter Philip Klein of The Washington Examiner blogger Duane Lester, of and, and citizen film director Andrew Marcus, who produced the much-anticipated movie Hating Breitbart, were the recipients of the inaugural Breitbart Awards at the Future of Journalism Summit in Providence, Rhode Island on June 8.

To keep the late Andrew Breitbart’s spirit alive, pay tribute to “the monumental achievements of Andrew Breitbart’s work,” and recognize “those who continue his legacy by carrying the torch for freedom and truth,” The Heritage Foundation and Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity created the Breitbart Awards. The winners were honored at a dinner held during the first-ever Future of Journalism Summit, which was organized by both organizations.

Each year, three individuals–a full-time reporter, a blogger, and a citizen activist–“whose efforts advance the spirit of Andrew Breitbart’s work” and who are “are driven by an indomitable pursuit for truth and accountability, and whose work has broken meaningful ground in advancing those causes on behalf of the public good” will be honored will be honored by The Heritage Foundation and The Franklin Center.

The Franklin Center is quickly becoming a force on the national and state levels in helping keep state and local governments accountable, filling a vital public service necessity–and doing it well–in an era of cuts to many state and local newspapers. The Heritage Foundation, with Robert Bluey and Lachlan Markay leading the way, has also been doing groundbreaking investigative journalism and expanding the organization’s footprint across all spectrums.

Lester told Breitbart News that it was symbolic that these two organizations ushered in inaugural awards and the dinner was held “in the same town and the same time as NetRoots Nation,” the annual gathering of liberal online activists. NetRoots Nation held its convention in Providence, Rhode Island this year to prevent conservatives, particularly the Right Online conference, from holding a gathering in the same town as they have done in recent years because Providence does not have many venues available for such large gatherings.

Yet, in the spirt of Breitbart, the organizers found a way to hold The Future of Journalism Summit in Providence. As Lester said, “Breitbart “wasn’t afraid to go where the enemies of liberty gathered and confront them or expose them.”
