The story:
The Globe and Mail has been awarded five National Newspaper Awards this year, more than any other paper. The NNAs, one of the top honours for Canadian print journalism, were given out on Friday evening in Ottawa. The Globe scored second straight wins for reporter Jessica Leeder in the multimedia category, designer Jason Chiu for presentation and Africa correspondent Geoffrey York in international reporting. The paper also scooped up awards for business and cartooning.

They could have picked up a couple more awards if there were categories for sensationalism, hyperbole and tabloidism based on their election coverage. Better luck next time.

This is in the same league as Real Estate Associations handing out pats on the back to fellow colleagues.
We still know the real estate industry is a despicable excuse for a 'profession.'
Let the customers decide and get back to us.

Somebody had to win.
They missed 'best hack in a (despot) supportive role' - shared by the entire Ottawa bureau.
