Larry Klayman’s Judicial Watch
will be honoring WorldNetDaily.com Editor Joseph Farah and Associate
Editor Elizabeth Farah for excellence in New Media journalism at the
legal watchdog’s national conference to be held in Pasadena, Calif.,
Oct. 22-23.

The convention comes on the heels of WorldNetDaily.com’s successful
first conference — “The New Media to America’s Rescue” — held last
month in Los Angeles.

Others receiving awards at the conference include Roger Ailes of the
Fox News Network, Rep. Bob Barr, R-Ga., Oakland Mayor and former
California Gov. Jerry Brown, Chinagate witness Johnny Chung, radio
talk-show host
and
former Rep. Bob Dornan, R-Ca., Internet and television personality
Matt Drudge, Accuracy In Media
Chairman Reed Irvine, print journalism veteran Robert Novak, Bill
O’Reilly of Fox’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Insight magazine Editor Paul
Rodriguez and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

Speaking about the conference, Klayman said, “We’re celebrating not
only Judicial Watch’s past success, but its future, and the conference
is a testament to Judicial Watch’s undisputed role as the people’s
attorney general — particularly given the death of the independent
counsel law and the breakdown of the Justice Department.”

The conference, which marks the fifth anniversary of Judicial Watch,
will also be celebrating the opening of the organization’s first branch
office in California, and will be held at the Pasadena Hilton.

Commenting specifically about the Farahs’ award, Klayman said, “We’re
giving Joseph and Elizabeth Farah an award because they are not only
extremely fine journalists, but they are visionaries — having created
the successful WorldNetDaily Internet news service. They are also people
of the highest integrity,” Klayman added.

Highlighted speakers at the conference include Klayman, Judicial
Watch President Tom Fitton, George Putnam, host of “Talk Back” on KIEV
in Glendale, Calif., Ray Briem, talk show host on KIEV,
WorldNetDaily.com commentator Jane Chastain, Irvine, Dornan and Chung.

Concerning Chung’s appearance, Judicial Watch hinted that the
Chinagate witness might be breaking new information on the Chinagate
scandal — how the Clinton Commerce Department sold taxpayer-financed
trade mission seats to China in 1994 in exchange for campaign
contributions.

A conference rally will take place at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 22, at
Memorial Park Amphitheater in Pasadena. The conference will start
Saturday at 10 a.m. and continue until 4 p.m. A black-tie reception
will follow the conference from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., with a dinner
following the reception.

During the conference, a radio panel will be held featuring Mike
Siegel, host of Radio America, Mark Larson of KPRZ Radio in San Diego,
George Putnam, Ray Briem, Warren Duffy of KKLA in Los Angeles and Geoff
Metcalf of KSFO in San Francisco.

While the conference will focus, in part, on Judicial Watch’s
numerous lawsuits against the Clinton administration, Klayman says the
gathering also will emphasize the non-partisan nature of his
organization.

“It’s a defining moment for Judicial Watch because it crystallizes
Judicial Watch’s role as a truly non-partisan government watchdog
without equal,” Klayman said of the conference. “The very fact that we
would honor Jerry Brown underscores our non-partisan nature.”

Klayman said Brown was the first one to point out the Clinton
corruption during the 1992 presidential debates.

“We honor him for his warning,” said Klayman.
