The Toohey Award


Journalists are increasingly using their power to hurt people and companies they do not like - all in the name of 'investigative journalism'. They do it because they know they can get away with it. 

The Toohey Award has been started to cull out bad journalists, and publicly brand them as 'bad actors'. It has been named after Ellsworth Toohey. You may consider The Toohey Award something similar to the Ig Nobel Prize. The public may safely disregard any article ever written, present-and-future, by a Toohey Award winner.

There is no limit to the number of 'Tooheys' that can be awarded. Every bad journalist deserves a Toohey.
