Yes, after another year of hate, bile, lies, idiocy, distortion, filth, madness, and above all Palin Derangement Syndrome in extremis it's time to list those media personalities that stood out in all their horrific sewer drenched rags as the worst of the worst (the term "best" just doesn't fit in the category).
The websites and blogs and newspapers these characters inhabit had their own special award ceremony but some are so vile they stand out head and shoulders, or rather wattle and beak.
To the list of defining characteristics above they have one further a special attitude of absolute elitism and condescension to the lower orders-especially the ones in flyover country at the very mention of whom their nostril reflexively turn upwards.
The only saving grace I can imagine with these people is that they have provided endless amusement as they twist and turn struggling to get away from the walloping that Donald Trump has delivered to them as their prognostication of his demise make them look utter fools.
