The following is an edited transcript of Joseph Farah’s remarks to the Western Conservative Conference in Phoenix Saturday night where he accepted a lifetime achievement award for his journalism career from the Western Center for Journalism.

I can’t remember the last time I got an award like this for journalism.

Most of the honors I get these days are – how shall I put this? – unintentional. What do I mean by that?

I’ll just give you an example. Every year I wind up on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of the top purveyors of “hate.”

You might not think of that as an award. But that kind of acknowledgment, knowing the source, represents a high honor for me.
