Salon contributing writer Rebecca Traister took home a Mirror Award last week for Best Commentary in Digital Media for two essays that appeared in Salon ("30 Rock' takes on feminist hypocrisy--and its own"; "Seeing 'Bridesmaids' is a social responsibility.") and one that appeared in the New York Times ("The Soap Opera Is Dead! Long Live The Soap Opera!" )
