Congratulations to CNN and may I add that I did not see one award listed for Fox or MSNBC. It's nice to see the hard working people at CNN get some recognition for jobs well done.

Congratulations to CNN for all the Headliner Awards this year.

I do have one question: seems to me that I recall Michael Ware being a big part of the Afghanistan reporting that won first prize -- so why wasn't his name included with the rest of the team?

Is CNN guilty of antiAntipodean bias? Hmmmm? ;-)

Speaking of the absence of Michael Ware, why oh why was Drew Griffin given an award in any category? IMHO he ought to work for FOX NEWS.
His interview with the "mighty" Sarah Palin was not only a waste of time but totally and factually inaccurate, just like the person he was interviewing.

While reporting for Inside the Battle Zone special Michael Ware was almost blown up by an IED that went off near the truck he was riding in. The IED exploded a second before it was suppose to otherwise Mr. Ware along with the others riding in that truck could have lost their lives or been severely injured.
Why would CNN exclude Michael Ware’s name on this special that they submitted to the National Headliner Awards committee? This omission infuriates me.

Cyn and Sharon make excellent points...Michael Ware should have been included with the rest of the team....Why the gross omission CNN???!!!

who sit on the board to decide those awards?

CNN folks.

Self congratulation is not a crime.

Come to think of it ladies, Michael may well agree with you. We have not seen him lately? If he leaves CNN, they deserve it. As a matter of fact, I think his colleagues should say something about HIS OMISSION.
