Online advertising and online sponsorships are available on Truthdig.
Launched in November 2005, Truthdig is a Web magazine that provides expert coverage of current affairs as well as a variety of thoughtful, provocative content assembled from a progressive point of view.
Truthdig provides a refreshing way of searching for the truth, featuring original reporting and commentary by some of the most influential journalists and authors of our time. The site seeks to challenge conventional wisdom by “drilling beneath the headlines” with a wide range of material, including extensive “digs”, reports, interviews, columns, videos and political cartoons.
Co-founded and edited by Robert Scheer, celebrated author, newspaper reporter, and columnist with the San Francisco Chronicle, as well as the “left” on public radio’s Left, Right & Center, Truthdig won the 2013 Webby Award for Best Political Website, and was named best website in 2011 by the Los Angeles Press Club’s Southern California Journalism Awards. Other core Truthdig team members include Zuade Kaufman, publisher; Eric Ortiz, managing editor; and Kasia Anderson, deputy editor.
