While I got nothing (zilch!) this year, Goldy received a David Neiwert Award:
David Goldstein (Best Muckraking, 2005), is the recipient of a new Neiwert Award tradition – the LEAP Award for alumni. The LEAP Award recognizes bloggers who successfully make the leap from blogging to traditional media. In 2006, David’s dreams of becoming a radio host became reality when 710 KIRO gave him a regular weekend show after just one appearance as a guest host. These days, he hosts the David Goldstein Show weekends at the station from 7 to 10 in the evening. At the end of the year, he was asked to fill in for fellow weekday KIRO host Dave Ross over the holidays. When he wasn’t bringing liberal political talk back to 710 KIRO, Goldy was fundraising for netroots candidates or posting regularly at HorsesAss. His impact has been immeasurable and we’re sure he’ll have a very busy 2007.

How the awards committee can overlook this work of genius, I’ll never know.
