    "Mother Jones" reporter shook up campaign

    NEW YORK (AP) — The reporter for Mother Jones magazine who broke the story of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's remarks that 47 percent of Americans "believe they are victims" is among the winners of the 64th annual George Polk Awards in Journalism.

    David Corn, Mother Jones' Washington bureau chief, received the political reporting prize for his work, which shook up the campaign when he reported on the remarks in September.

    • Also see David Corn and Michael Isikoff's new book -- HUBRIS - true story of how the Bush Republicans lied, cheated, and deceived the U.S. into the Iraq War. McCain's so afraid of this story's details being publicized that he's filibustering Chuck Hagel's nomination on the flimsiest grounds ever.

        This is a very difficult vote, this is probably the hardest decision I've ever had to make. Any vote that might lead to war should be hard, but I cast it with conviction."

        "I come to this debate, Mr. Speaker, as one at the end of 10 years in office on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, where stopping the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction was one of my top priorities. I applaud the President on focusing on this issue and on taking the lead to disarm Saddam Hussein. ... Others have talked about this threat that is posed by Saddam Hussein. Yes, he has chemical weapons, he has biological weapons, he is trying to get nuclear weapons."

    • Looks like something might have been "shaken" out as well, but it did get Obushma elected to a 4th term. bY THE WAY, When is Corn's article about the 7.7% unemployment figure "adustment" coming out?

      "Corn promised to release the "full" video, but when it became apparent that there was a jump-cut in the footage, he updated his post at Mother Jones with an explanation that the source had inadvertently turned off the recording device."
