Dana Bash Wins Dirksen Award

CNN's Senior Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash has won the 2010 Dirksen Award for Distinguished Coverage of Congress, the National Press Foundation announced Wednesday.

"These reporters produced good, tight coverage of members of Congress. Their work informed the public about how the system works," the foundation judges said in a statement regarding this year's three recipients.

The NPF specifically noted Bash's coverage of Congressional earmarks and Senatorial "holds" as exemplary. Senatorial holds are a practice by which one Senator can halt the approval process of a presidential appointee in order to gain leverage for unrelated matters.

The award will be presented on March 1, 2011 at the 28th annual NPF Awards Dinner, and carry a cash prize. When asked about the award, Bash said "I am humbled and honored to receive this award. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the fabulous group of journalists I'm privileged to work with on CNN's Capitol Hill team". This is the second time Bash has won this award.

What a nice picture and Dana looks stunning. But the best thing about the photo is how happy her hubby, John King looks, who is right behind her. He looks so proud of his spouse Dana, that you can see the joy in his face.
A very lucky lady in more ways than one.
