Truthdig has been nominated for a Webby Award in the category of politics and we need you to take 30 seconds to vote for us. Here are three reasons why we think we deserve to win.

1. Truthdig is independent. When your local public radio station runs ads for the fracking industry, you know that no corner of the media landscape is left unmolested by corporate dollars — almost no corner, that is. Our loyalty is to our readers, our writers and the truth, period.

2. Truthdig is fearless. Sometimes the truth is uncomfortable. Our columnists and editors follow the facts wherever they lead them. Hey, that’s why they call it muckraking.

3. Truthdig is reliable. Our editors apply the same standards of journalism found in the golden age newsrooms of America’s great newspapers. Sure, we left the mainstream media behind, but we brought the copy editors with us. Consider our facts checked, our sources reliable and our intentions pure.

About the Webbys: It’s like the Oscars of the Web. Winners are chosen both by jury and by the public.

Speaking of honor, we are so proud to be nominated alongside some of our favorite websites:, NPR Politics, Open Secrets and Politico. Wow! But don’t vote for them.
