The Shammies celebrate the finest sham media. "Competition for the 2013
Gold Shammy," said the panel of judges, "has been cutthroat." The Shammies
are not for the tabloid lower orders. Rupert Murdoch has been honoured
enough. Shammies distinguish respectable journalism that guards the limits
of what the best and brightest like to call the "national conversation".

“Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is humanity’s
original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made,
through disobedience and through rebellion.” — Oscar Wilde, Soul of Man
Under Socialism

“The free market is perfectly natural... do you think I am some kind of
dummy?” — Jarvis Cocker
