All of us here at Truthdig are honored to announce that we’ve won the Webby Award jury prize for this year’s Best Political Blog. The fact that our fellow nominees included sites we visit daily like The Huffington Post, The Economist, The New Yorker and The Atlantic only makes this news all the more humbling and gratifying, but most important, we’re happy to share this award with our community of readers — our biggest asset and the reason we keep doing what we do. And now … the champagne!
