Truthdig and LA Press Club /

On a night when Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein were honored for their hallmark Watergate investigation, the Los Angeles Press Club named Truthdig columnist Chris Hedges as the 2011 journalist of the year in the online category. Truthdig received honorable mentions in Best Website Exclusive to the Internet and in Group Weblog.

In awarding him the organization’s top prize for online writers, the judges offered high praise for Hedges, calling him “Champion of the 99%—mortal enemy of the 1%. This former war correspondent turns out weekly columns packed with insightful and biting opinion.”

Hedges was also honored in 2009 as the Online Journalist of the Year by the L.A. Press Club. He was given the Best Online Column prize in 2010 for his Truthdig essay “One Day We’ll All Be Terrorists.”

The Sunday evening awards ceremony was at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

Tracy Bloom won an award for her Politics Today blog, which began at Neon Tommy and now continues at Truthdig.
