Emmy Awards for Journalism Results Are In – Guess Which Network Didn’t Receive a Single Award

The 38th annual Emmy awards for News & Documentary provide Americans with useful insight into how journalistic contributions are esteemed in the media industry.


The conspicuous absence of news valued by Republicans and conservatives speaks volumes about the awards panel’s priorities. It is important to note there is ample room for a diversity of viewpoints in the U.S. media; the issue is not whether or not a particular award recipient is deserving of the recognition.

In the case of the Emmy Awards for News & Documentary, the lack of ideological and political balance is appreciable.

The following represents the Emmy Awards by television or news network:

The awards for PBS (12), CBS (9), ABC (5), CNN (3), and MSNBC (2) belie the fact that Fox News, the only conservative-leaning network on television, is shut out again despite its routinely strong viewership. There are no 2017 Emmy Awards for anchors like Bret Baier or Shepard Smith, or for commentators like Dr. Charles Krauthammer; such accolades are bestowed on CNN’s Anderson Cooper and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.

Fox News did not win any Emmy awards in 2016, either. Or 2015. Or 2014. Or 2013. Or 2012. The news network is quite obviously being excluded from all consideration.

Maddow won one of her awards, “Outstanding News Discussion & Analysis,” for the bipartisan issue of the crisis in Flint. Her second award, “Outstanding Live Interview,” was given for her interview with Trump administration official Kellyanne Conway. “Anderson Cooper 360” won for its reportage on Trump University Fraud.

Emmy Awards were given for outstanding investigations on terrorism (PBS), gangs (ABC’s “Nightline”), and foreign wars (CBS’s “60 Minutes”). Again, this is not to argue that any given recipient is undeserving of recognition.

However, if awards can be given for investigations holding the Republican Party and the Trump administration accountable, then there should be more inclusion of investigative reports on matters such as Hillary Clinton’s private email practices and Sen. Bob Menendez’s corruption trial.


Such recognition would signal to an American public that is already highly distrustful of the U.S. media that their views are not being dismissed by journalistic elites. If the rift between the populace at large and its sources of news information is to be repaired, it starts with gestures of mutual appreciation for different viewpoints.

    MadCow what did it get ? Moron of the year for her failed efforts in her so called REAL Polls showing Trump a million points behind or his Tax returns that showed Trump pad more than Faggot and Thief or Liar and thief Barry Soetoro ? Anderson I take it in the Pooper … screw them all I do not watch any main stream news I won’t allow myself to get aggravated over the lies that spew out from these Script reading shills …At least Fox attempts to be Fair and Balanced . With the exception os Sheppard Smith who just deserves a good ass whooping ..

    As always FoxNews were ignored. I might add that One American News( which is my listening of choice on occasion ) also not mentioned. I recall when growing up the News were not biased as they are now, they reported the facts and kept their opinions to themselves Huntley-Brinkley, Walter Cronkite knew how to keep ratings up. As for my household we choose not to tune in, read it all online!

    Well the ones that got the honors are certainly NOT journalists at all, they are just a huge bunch of liars, so the biggest liars get the awards, I really do not know how they can stand to look at themselves in the mirror every morning.

    Change the name from Emmys to the Joesph Goebbels Award of Notable Propaganda and it would be more accurate.

    When votes are given by those who are corrupt, getting zero votes is a perfect score. 🙂
