MSNBC's Farrow: I don't deserve Cronkite journalism award

It's a little weird that newly named MSNBC host Ronan Farrow, 26, was chosen to receive the Cronkite Award for Excellence in Exploration and Journalism, presented to him Wednesday. After all, his new show has been on the air for three days so far and, otherwise, he's led an unremarkable career in journalism.

The peculiarity of the award wasn't lost on him, though. "Maybe I can earn a Cronkite award by investigating how long it'll take me to actually live up to a Cronkite award?" Farrow tweeted just before the award ceremony in New York.

If nothing else, critics can't call Farrow un-self-aware.
