Keith Olbermann to Get Molly Ivins Award

MSNBC's Keith Olbermann will receive the Molly Ivins Award today from the Alternative Association of Newsweeklies today.

The award was recently named in honor of Ms. Ivins, who served as co-editor of AAN member Texas Observer early in her muckraking career, and who died of breast cancer on January 31, at the age of 62. It is intended to recognize a journalist or media figure who's reporting or commentary has had a profound impact on the public's understanding of vital national issues, and who's work embodies the spirit of Ivins' courageous legacy.

Olbermann says he's honored to receive the award and still wants to be Molly Ivins when he grows up.

Congratulations, Keith.
