Nominate a Truthdigger of the Week
Every week the Truthdig editorial staff selects a Truthdigger of the Week, a group or person worthy of recognition for speaking truth to power, breaking the story or blowing the whistle. It is not a lifetime achievement award. Rather, we’re looking for newsmakers whose actions in a given week are worth celebrating.

Classic: Truthdigger of the Week: Ted Kennedy

In honor of Sen. Ted Kennedy’s passing, we’re re-posting one of his classic moral stands. This 2007 speech against the escalation of the Iraq war was so good we had to give him the Truthdigger of the Week award back then.

Truthdiggers of the Week: Joseph Stiglitz and Linda Bilmes

This week Truthdig salutes Joseph Stiglitz and Linda Bilmes for uncovering the true cost of the war in Iraq.

Truthdigger of the Week: The Rev. Joel Hunter

This week Truthdig salutes the Rev. Joel Hunter, who recently resigned as president of the Christian Coalition because the group was unwilling to accept his agenda on global warming, poverty and AIDS.  While we don’t endorse Hunter’s stand on choice and gay marriage, we admire the consistency of his pro-life position.  As the pastor himself says, “unless we are caring as much for the vulnerable outside the womb as inside the womb, we’re not carrying out the full message of Jesus.”
