The Weekly Bernard Lewis Award.
We are proud to announce our second installment of the Bernard Lewis Award, when we acknowledge the shitty articles that graced the front pages of our mainstream media. 
This week’s award goes to Bradley Hope’s “Egyptian candidates use their beards to lure votes” for The National. One of our brilliant page members, Kawlture had the misfortune of coming across this sad excuse for journalism. “Beard politics,” Hope suggests, is the main factor surrounding the upcoming Egyptian elections. 
Maybe Hope took this beardometer (taken from karlremarks) a bit too seriously.

It takes a lot of effort to confine oneself within this mental box of imperialist constructs rooted in racism and ignorance. Here at Mainstream Media and the Orient, we like to reward and acknowledge these efforts.
In the name of the orientalist master, Bernard Lewis, this week’s award goes to Fareed Zakaria’s piece, “A Region at War with its History.” Zakaria’s efforts will never go overlooked. His most recent piece suggests that we refer to the geopolitical and socioeconomic conditions of 12th century Arabia for better understanding the current authoritarian nature of the Arabian Peninsula. That, folks, is dedication. Thank you Zakaria, for constantly providing content for this blog.
